Growler fill @ FMcD's,

Pours cloudy reddish brown. Hazy, finger thick light tan head. Bubbly but dissipates quickly.

Smells malty, spicy, and peppery. Hints of dried fruit, cherry syrup, and toasted bread.

Starts off a little too sweet. Nice peppery rye backbone with solid matinees and a hint of hops. Hints of fruit, black cherry, and raspberry. Not bad.

Low carbonation, thin and slick, a little syrupy.

Overall a little bland and underwhelming to me. Too sweet, would have preferred more peppery rye and spicy hop balance.

Freshness: Unknown
Packaging: Growler
Glassware: Perfect Pint
Purchased: Filled at Craft Brewed, Nashville

A: Starts with a small, off-white head on a clear and bright amber colored beer. The head fades fast and only leaves a hint of lace.

S: Aromas feature some spicy rye up front, plus a slight sweetness of pale malts. Other smells include a pepper character and faint lemon/citrus notes.

T: The taste has a nice bite of spicy rye grain and a moderate hop bitterness to play against the malts. The malts and hops are balanced and help showcase the rye bill.

M: Body is medium, with carbonation between low and moderate. The finish is of rye, pepper and earthy hops and is neither sweet nor dry.

O: On the Jackalope website, they say this is their brewery's session beer. I think it succeeds in this role, being a simple but tasty beer that's not too high in ABV and featuring a good balance.
