Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear golden color. There is a small white head which fades to a small ring of foam. Minimal spotty lacing.

S: An interesting mix of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and citrus, combined with a mild rye spice and some pine.

T: Even less rye in the flavor then the aroma, but it still imparts a bit of its characteristic spice. Overall fairly sweet, with some caramel malt coming through in the middle of the sip. Finish is fairly short but exhibits some mild pine bitterness and complementary rye spice.

M: Medium bodied with some effervescent carbonation.

O: Like this bottle says, this is a pale ale at heart. The rye gives it a little bit of interesting spice, but it retains it's drinkability and fruitiness. One of the few rye beers I've had that would be good for drinking on a hot day.
