This special brew incorporates malted rye in the grain bill lending a spicy character and complex flavors. Generously hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. This hoppy pale ale has a sneaky bite that will creep up and leave you smiling!

650ml bottle. Poured into a Lawson's snifter 10/8/2014.

A- Dark mahogany-caramel brown body, two finger thick off-white head with great retention time that doesn't get in the way of drinking the beer. Lots of thick lacing as the beer line goes down. Looks great, darker than I'd expect, though. [4.25]

S- Clean, crisp citrus, floral hops, pine notes along with a nice caramel sweetness and spicy rye character. Very nicely executed- very hop-forward but still sufficiently balanced to give it a nice complexity. [4]

F- Spicy rye bread jumps out with a nice caramel sweetness that is then buttressed by a very welcome grapefruit, pine, floral hop bite in waves. Quite hoppy. Finish is a grainy pale malt sweetness that actually has been something I notice in a lot of Lawson's pale ales. Very nice stuff. [4]

M- Medium bodied, soft, creamy and smooth with a nice sharp rye spiciness and floral hop bitterness. This is nicely hopped but quite balanced with the malt and rye flavours as well. Fairly bitter, but that doesn't get in the way of drinking this beer. [4.25]

O- Very solid rye pale ale, well constructed and well-hopped. Another nice beer from Lawson's, would recommend getting after this at least once to try. There aren't a ton of great rye pale ales and I am blanking on one that I enjoyed more than this. [4]

FInal score: 4.04

Deep copper color, faint aroma of citrus, dough, and rye, ...taste is similar with a strong malt presence-- but with mild hop flavors and medium dry finish its not the cloying malt that I dislike in many ales. Nice spicy quality as well...Enjoyable.
