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

On the hand pull at Al's of Hampden.

A-Slightly hazed dark brown tinted copper, with a medium light tan head that reduced to a thin cap and left thick lacing.

S-Spicy rye notes and sweet toasted caramel malts up front with a touch of earthy citrus in the background. The aroma is pleasant but rather light.

T-Spicy, sweet and chewy with a good biting hop kick along with the rye zing gives this one a pleasant sharpness.

M-Medium bodied, sharp and biting with good lingering flavour and bitterness.

D-Really nice stuff and with a fairly low ABV this one is easy to enjoy multiple times over.

Serving type: cask
