3.71/5 rDev +5.7%
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.

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.
