3.85/5 rDev -1.5%
First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA
Poured a slightly hazy darker amber color with a thin wispy head. Basic aroma of toasted grains, caramel malts, mild floral hops notes. Taste-wise it was pretty solid, but if there was any honey to be had, it must've faded a while ago. Bready, toasted grains, distinctive rye seeds, lighter notes of caramel and slightly bittering hops in the finish; a bit of cardboard in there, but well within tolerance. Medium body, nothing extraordinary, but decently drinkable overall.

I had this on-tap at Capone's during Philly beer week. Served in a sample glass.
Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a layer of off white head that goes away completely.
Smell: Sweet and slightly fruity with a floral characteristic that I assume comes from the honey. I'm also picking up a citrus peel note from the hops.
Taste: The honey definitely comes out and gives the beer some floral and fruity notes. The citrus peel hop bitterness doesn't come out a whole lot until the finish. Nicely balanced, but I'm not getting a ton of rye spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this just a bit more than the ryePA. This one didn't have nearly as much spice, but the floral and fruity notes were definitely enjoyable. I would have this again given the chance.
