Very refreshing, I really like this one. I think it is very underrated.

Very nice refreshing citrusy aroma from the beer. The taste like other reviewers have said has a bit of a caramel and strong rye taste to it. A bit sweet. My only complaint is the finish is a little flat. I think this would be a great summer beer.

The reason I really like this beer is its great balance of all things good (malt, rye notes, hops, and various mild background flavors), but not dominated by any one thing. Then, the "drinkability" puts the icing on the cake, with its smoothness and subdued bitterness and a really nice clean finish.
