super dark red. no head.
smell is amateurish. sweet, but unrefined. something i'd expect from my neighbor's hobby.
taste is the same. not refined. decent, but in a sense of the neighbor, again. BA has nothing higher than a 4 in their line up. geez.... quick look at my receipt--- I paid $5.75 for this crap!!!! goddamn O'Shea's....
alright, well since i'm now officially on a rant for having THREE INFERIOR BREWS FROM O'SHEA's i'm gonna continue.... that little short guy SERIOUSLY needs a vacation or SOMETHING cuz he's all frickin' wound tight. put out over $100 in inferior beer and he STILL limits me to ONE STINKIN' PLINY... AND I traveled over 45 miles to get there???? whatever. sayonara MFrrrr.
this brew SUCKED. and so did the guy who sold it to me....
oh well. no hard feelings, right?

Picked this up at Ales Unlimited.

Pours a mostly clear, reddish-amber with a massive, slightly dimpled light tan head. Retention is superb and is testing my patience while I await for the foam to settle enough for me to take sip.

Initial aromas of caramel and cracked pepper with brown sugar cookie undertones and subtle chocolate. Soap.

Spicy/herbal flavors hit the palette first and are swiftly followed with a sharp hop bitterness. Moderately-high bitter and this lingers long into the medium-dry finish.

Feels thin and watery on the tongue with a low level of carbonation. Hop bitterness is somewhat harsh/astringent.

Overall the nose might be the best aspect of this brew. Bitterness is harsh and detracts from drinkability, mouthfeel is unsatisfying, and the flavors aren't interesting and complex enough to yield repeated enjoyment.

Nice head but a little coarse in the carbonation. Amber brown in the wine glass. Quite hoppy but really rye'd up with the harsh cereal taste. A slight warmth of malt. A hint of something scorched. Long bitter aftertaste. Light body. Not much in the nose. Maybe it needs to be really cold with a hot pretzel.

Bottle (22 oz) from Beer Revolution in Oakland.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter.

A: Incredibly dark. Opaque. Light white head fades quickly.

S: Cheesy and citrusy. Smells like a English cask ale.

T: Decent, but not great. Smoothish, with some citrus and that same strange cheesiness. Lightly dry aftertaste, but bland maintaste.

O: Drinkable, pleasant beer. Still, wouldn't have again. Unrecommended.

Beer pours a nearly opaque amber with khaki head that sticks around as a nice cap. Decent lacing.

Nice caramelly bready notes. As it warms some nice piny hops come out.

Taste follows the nose with some dry rye notes lots of caramel, lots of bready malts. finish is rye and dry.

Mouthfeel is medium light with medium high carbonation. Very soft on the palate.

Overall, nice incorporation of the rye with a solid amber beer. Very drinkable, i'm a fan.
