Transparent copper color. Descent head on the pour with weak retention. Some lacing.
Bready malt and pine scent.
Solid rye bread malt character, grainy and spicy. Assertive hop notes of pine and herbs. Very well balanced.
Light to medium bodied with a sharp carbonation. Feel really compliments the flavor profile.
Good brew. Interesting flavors and easy to drink.

Tasted at brewery and again from growler poured into pint glass
A - Beautiful copper/orange with a slender beige head
S - Very shy on the nose - some citrus, toasty malt and some other spices which I assume is the rye. The nose did open up slightly after warming up some but still was subdued.
T - Toasty malt and rye right off the bat followed up with some soft bitter hops.
M - Such a refreshing beer! There really is a a lot of flavor packed into this 4.4% brew. Toasty malts and rye, smooth and clean with just a touch of crisp/bitterness from the hops that makes you want another sip, followed by another...etc.
O - This is my first taste of a rye beer and I was impressed. This is a great "lawn mower" beer - easy to drink with plenty of flavor. Very refreshing.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to rawfish for this bottle, one of the few left from a recent trade. 22 oz. bottle with a bit of D&D feel to it split with my wife. I won't mention the D&D thing to her. She thinks its geeky.
The pop & pour, whoa! Concern. Alarmingly carbonated, the head leaping skyward with verve & vigor. Underneath the big snow is an orange beer that smells about as you'd expect. A bit of spicy rye kick & plenty of pale malts.
Gramarye's carbonation tickles all the way to my elbows. The bink & fizz is distracting, it's hard to get to whatever it is that's underneath. Using my +2 Sword of Foam Banishing, I manage to get some sense of the beer: spicy rye, pale malts. Touches of lemon, grainy hops. Pretty simple. As befits the ABV, though, easy to drink, though the spiciness slows me down.
I pissed off someone I didn't know on Facebook today for repeatedly misusing the word "socialism" - good fuck, go look it up - so my day was already made, but hey, a beer makes the end of every night better, right? Carbonation really does no favors to the beer; still pretty good.

Bottle: big 650mL dark brown bottle, funky and funky, 'dark' label. A good package.
Appearance: pours a clear, dark golden copper colour with a decent, fluffy head. It drops to a creamy one-finger. Decent lacing - looks pretty good.
Aroma: toasted malt with some spice and a touch an earthen grain flavour that is unfamiliar - I assume that's the rye. Reasonably complex.
Taste: the toasted malts are there again with some caramel and toffee. The rye backs up again - I think I could get used to the woody, earthen characters it brings to the palate. Nice.
Aftertaste: drops away a bit, but the rye hangs about. Crisp on the finish.
Mouth feel: again pretty much on the money. A moderate body with enough carbonation to carry the flavour but without dominating the smooth feel. The crispness on the finish tops it off.
Overall: I have to admit I am starting to become quite the fan of rye beers. Considering an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL would be over AU$180 however, I think I will take a Brewcult Supa Fly Rye IPA most days, and save the Gramarye for special occasions.
