3.16/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: Coca-Cola brown with a tan and cloudy fluffy head. Decent lacing.

Nose: Light toffee, coffee, and raisin.

Taste: Crisp and dry at first. SOme butterscotch and crackers. Some alcohol hotness in the middle.

Notes: Not very interesting. Perhaps it's good for the style, however.

Appearance: Clear mahogany brown body topped by a dense frothy white head.

Smell: Bready and earthy rye scents, some caramel sweetness and leafy, herbal hop notes. It's a bit subdued, but pleasant enough.

Palate: Opens with a great mix of earthy rye and caramel sweetness. Very bready, full-flavored. Tobacco-like and herbal hop notes appear mid-palate, which blend nicely with the earthiness of the rye. Finishes dry and bitter with a note of rustic bread.

Overall: An interesting and very well executed beer. This could have easily been a mess of clashing flavors, but it manages to strike a perfect balance between earthy rye, sweeter caramel malt flavors and hop bitterness.

On-tap at Stone

The pour is brownish in color with a finger of khaki colored head. Definite rye smell, almost like pumperknickel. Quite a bit of roast and toasted malt. A citrus hop aroma and a touch of spice. Flavor is a little bitter without much in the way of hop flavor. Some citrus, earth, and spice notes and lots of rye malt, light roast, and toasted malt. Kind of just run of the mill flavors.

Lovely clouds of foam in the tall Peroni glass, piled up on the auburn brew. Sprightly on the tongue. Not much aroma except some beery malt.

Malt and nicely roasted barley are enlivened by the grainy rye. It has kind of a vegetal bitterness like arugula, plus a hoppy zing. Some caramel and sweetness with a long, resiny bitterness that stops short of iritation.

Now this is progress: take a debased beer style and jack it up with rye-- a solution looking for a problem. Very drinkable and thirst quenching with that interesting bitter and tangy bite, along with the mellow malt. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottlecraft on India Street.

Freshly kegged batch on tap at the brewery. Snifter.

A: Very dark brown and opaque with a subtle reddish tinge near the bottom when held to light. The beige head is pillowy and recedes in craters and caverns. Brussels lace is left all over the glass.

S: Toasted bread with a little biscuit and caramel. Dark fruit is reminiscent of date and prune. There's a light spiciness with traces of orange and tangerine.

T: The brewery's description of the beer mentions pumpernickel bread and that's pretty much dead on. Lightly spicy rye blends with faint raisin and prune notes. Toasted bread accompanies a little caramel and chocolate. There's a moderate bitterness with notes of orange flesh. Bitterness waxes in the smooth rye pumpernickel finish.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and sticky.

Overall: An enjoyable hoppy Rye Brown. Recommended.

On tap at Latitude 33 Brewing Company in Vista, CA.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, rye, herbal hops, and some nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
