3.34/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - apropos, a honey color, fairly clear, and with very little off-white colored foam.

Smell - slightly hoppy aroma, but very little else that's prominent. Maybe a fruit-like quality.

Taste - a hoppy beginning, that quickly fades into a milder, musky quality. The honey doesn't show up boldly as a flavor, but it might be helping to subdue the hops. Bitter aftertaste, but that's not too strong. Generally nothing that's very prominent in the taste aside from the slight hoppy quality.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced and medium-bodied. Not too creamy, not too light.

Overall - not a bad brew at all, and not bad tasting, but not terribly intriguing either.

3.71/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Attractive orangey amber in the Affligem chalice. A little hazy with a nice white foam that renews itself with every sip. Tangy and silky mouthfeel with lots of creamy carbonation.

Rich and mellow grainy taste followed by a hoppy bitterness. I forgot about the honey, but it does seem to mellow the scratchy rye a little. Not a bad combination, and I''m not a huge honey fan. A little murky at the finish.

Refreshing watery taste along with the grainy maltiness. Thoroughly drinkable and flavorful brew. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.

22oz bottle served cold in pint glass. Beer is a very pale amber, crystal clear, and forms very little white head. Aroma is not awesome, lagery and even a little bit skunky, with a hint of residual malt sugar. Flavor is more mellow and pleasant. A gentle dose of hops complements the natural grainy bitterness of the rye, which is itself pretty tame. Pretty fizzy, which works out well for the summer ale style, and helps bring forward the spicy and lemon flavors.

I like rye beers quite a bit. This one is pretty OK, but totally sessionable -- in stark contrast to the usual hop wallop of ales from America typically featuring rye.

4.05/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Served from a growler into a nonic glass

A- Poured a very clear light orange color, huge fluffy off-white head that left tons of dense chunky lace. No visible carbonation

S- Big cereal malt notes, some spiciness, pretty big lemon and grassy notes

T- Very bright tasting, burst of lemon, grassy, and spicy hop character. Nice backbone of cereal, bready, graininess and caramel malts. As it warmed up some green apple and almost chocolate like flavors developed.

M- Soft/low carbonation, very smooth, semi-dry finish, medium to lighter bodied

O- A really nicely balanced and sessionable summer beer. Different from you average pale ale or even rye pale ale. The flavor profile is well-balanced and pretty unique. Really digging this one.

Pours a medium blonde color with a huge effin' head into my glass. I like that it uses rye and I've noticed a slight uptick in the amount of rye beers coming out. This also has honey.

Lots of spicy rye with a touch of sweet honey in the nose. Very invigorating in a sense.

Wow. Sweet, spicy rye mixes with a touch of honey to create a very drinkable beer. There's both flaked and malted rye. Hops aren't specified but they lean more toward pine.

Lingering spiciness dominated the back the of the throat.

I like this beer. It's easy to drink and would quench my thirst on a hot day. It's a good alternative to the usual spring seasonals.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is honey in color supporting a fair but thin head leaving spotty lace. Smell of citris, honey and floral hops. Taste has a honey breadiness, caramel malt with the rye and a bitterness that makes itself known but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. not a bad brew being a borderline summer session for me.

3.38/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. No obvious bottle dating.

Out of the bottle almost a little wet, but a nice orange amber body slightly hazy. However, barely makes a finger of head while pouring and gives little staying power. What little I saw was slightly off white. While drinking manages some

Nose is grainy, a little bit of that rye spicy character. Smells very wet though and flat. Little touch of honey but not much.

Very dry finish, and bark like tree wood for the malt presence. Slightly wet, but I suspected worse (it's not as watery as I thought it would be), with a bit of rye spicy character, and a mild pine hop. Some dry bread comes out, a little crusty sensation, but nothing honey or sweet tasting.

This is not overall that bad, but it's not doing too much for me either. It's drinkable and I could have it again, but it's not that impressive either.
