4.1/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear red colour with a foamy offwhite head. Fair head retention.

Fruity hop aroma. Caramels malt. Sharp.

Mmmmm. Bitter. Solid hop bitterness backing up a fruity hop profile then sweet malt. Very good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Really good beer. Solid flavour and eminently drinkable.

3.65/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Pours brown/copper with a large creamy head.
Nose shows bready and spicy rye alongside grassy, herbal and earthy hops.
Very similar flavours but without so much hop character, more just the bitterness.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle poured into half pint.

L - dark orange/copper, cloudy, pours a frothy 2inch thick offwhite head that lingers.

S - freshly baked bread, herbs (cardamom), orange, all over a strong malt backdrop

T - bready malts (more like pumpernickel), with red berries and walnuts in the middle. very bitter resin flavours towards a lingering finish.

F - feels a tad watery for a rye, which is usually more dense than other beer styles. Astringent, bitter finish.

O - up there with Mountain Goat Rye, although not as sweet. Long, bitter finish makes this stand out, but could ruin it's sessionability.
