3.88/5  rDev +1.6%

Growler fill at Froogal MacDoogal Nashville.

A: Pours clear, cherry red. Thick, two-finger off-white head. Nice lacing and retention.

S: Grassy, earthy hops. Some toasted malt, sweet fruity cherry, and whiffs of spicy pepper.

T: Hoppy goodness yet well balanced with creamy malts and a backbone of just the right amount of dry, peppery rye flavor.

M: Medium bodied, slick, and creamy. Dry, coating that lingers along with that pleasant aftertaste.

O: So glad these guys have made it to Nashville. This beer is well-balanced, flavorful, and very sessionable. Look forward to many more beers from northern AL!

1507th Review on BA
Growler to Speigleau small tulip

Alabama state tick done!
Thanks to BA BrandonBrew for this one

App- A deeper copper with A big tan 3 finger head. A ton of cling. Inside the glass it poured out with a great density with a orange hue in the center. A bit of yellow around the edges. I said it once but ill say it again. A great cling and sticky lace.

Smell- A great deal of Rye spice in there with a big citrus zest. More of a triangle of lemon,orange, grapefruit zest. Hard to pick one. The hops are there and also balanced by a forest wood dry grass type of aroma. The back end is a bit sweet with a touch of caramel.

Taste- I thought that this was a very tasty beer. It has a big rye flavor but semi balanced with a grassy herbal flavor. The flavor has a bit of a soap bubble flavor with a caramel malt flavor. On the 1st glass was better than the 3rd. Its pretty good but the beer needs to remain colder for me.

Mouth- A lighter medium body with maybe a touch of caramel creaminess behind it. Then it was paired with a medium carbonation. Couldve been a bit less thick to make a bit more crisp for an APA. Medium rye flavor. Residual zest and grass.

Taste- It's good. Rye and hops came to party. I think a few tweaks and I woulda went bat shit for this one. Tastier when a bit colder IMO. Keep that in mind.
