First off I have got to say that after my first two experiences with Terrapin with the Rye Pale Ale and the Rye Squared, I was very disappointed with this effort. I really expected more.

The beer had a nice straw yellow slightly cloudy appearance to it. It had a white light head to it that dissipated at the right pace. The aroma of the beer was light malt with some citrus. The taste was lacking for me. I got the malt with some hints of citrus that provided some sweetness, but it really lacked a lot of flavor. It had some light noticeable carbonation. Overall, the beer was smooth and creamy and very easy to drink with a slight bitter finish at the end. I could probably drink a worse on a hot summer day, so I might reach for this one again, mainly to make sure that the first tasting was not just way off.
