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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pale golden ale with bronze hues, decent head with a nice lace. Bit of chill haze is evident.
Spicy taste, hints of butteryness to the beer
Clingy mouth feel, and finish that lingers on a bit after the swallowing. Hints of spice
Highly drinkable beer fabulous in fact. Rye seems to be very well balance. Shines through just right, not under powering or overbearing. Well made beer

Poured into a worthy burger tulip glass. Dark amber color, minimal head, some nice bubbles around the glass. Smells very malty. Bready, caramel, can't really pick up any hops. Taste is slightly better. Bready malt with the caramel but also some pine and citrus swirled in there, but just barley. A nice spice/bitterness from the rye, as well. The aftertaste is malty. wishing the hops were more apparent, but I knew that they wouldn't be coming in, so I'm not sure why I'm disappointed. Mouthfeel is alright, medium, slight carbonation. A decent beer from Lawson's, but I much prefer their ipas. Still glad to have tried this.

Nice and fresh. Poured into a Lawson's tulip. Deep amber color, not much of a "pale" ale. Smell is fantastic. Citrusy, little grassy, with subtle spice notes. Taste is great. Lemon, some earthy notes with a slight rye spice to balance it out. Very drinkable and delicious.

Pours clear orange with a fat creamy head of tan foam that lasted and left nice lace. Sweet light malt smell. Spicy sweet rye with a touch of lemon and sweet malt. A bold hop floral and a peppery and spicy rye. A fruit skin sweetness and a very faint musk. It smells like a rye beer. Light sweet rye grain cracker with sweet flowers. Taste is pale malt with a lovely hop floral and bitter. My question was "Is there wheat in this?" There's a hint of something smooth in the malt. The hops abound and are IPA style bitter. A touch of graham cracker is especially pleasant to the both the nose and the drink. The bitter is sharp in the finish and and there was some earth in the malt too.

Notes taken from early 2012 (March?) from a bottle share i hosted with the local crew.

Thanks kindly to jbuddle for the trade.

a - deep amber with yellow white head. spotty lacing. great rye smell. some good sweet malt. a bit thin, very rye. water like malt bomb. overall, expected a bit more, but not bad, just not great.
