32 ounce growler -> Highlands Brewing snifter

A - medium to dark amber with a foamy one finger head that is the color of lemon meringue. Retention is basically limited to a thin ring and there is a moderate amount of lacing.

S - very bready, with some pine, and floral notes as well.

T - the caramel malts contain a lemon like sourness giving way to a big rye bready finish.

M - nice and thick with decent levels of carbonation.

O - If you can get this stuff by all means do. It isn't canned yet, but it is worth seeking out.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Mobile. First time I've seen Mumbai Rye south of Birmingham, nice.

A- bronze-ish appearance is good. Delivered with a solid 2 finger head.

S- spicy rye and a orange lemon citrus split the nose a perfect 50/50. A little pine and some faint malt finds its way in as well.

T- rye, pine, and a little citrus taste great, all working together perfectly.

M- solid full feel here. This is where one might thinks its more than 6%, nice full mouth.

D- this one could get you in trouble. Goes down great with the pizza and spicy crushed red pepper. Really a nice beer.

Hands down my favorite Good People beer and I believe it will be one of the beers that puts them on the craft brew map in years to come. I'm a huge rye beer fan (I still haven't had one I didn't like, even the "surprise! it's rye!" beers I didn't expect) but this one takes the cake. The color is a clean, golden amber and the smell is evocative of air after a spring rain in the woods with hints of malt. This beer is truly quaffable. I mean it. It's smoother than James Bond at a "Porn Star and Vodka" convention. The hops give a thoroughly pleasant earthy-spicy zing while the smooth, rich malt is punctuated by a roasty, toasty highnote thanks to the delicious rye. If you don't try this beer when you have the chance then you will truly miss out on a needed life experience. I have drank this beer first thing in the morning at 9am and believe me, Folgers can go f*** itself. ;)
