Cloudy gold with 1-finger medium cream head. No lace and no head retention.
Nose is rye straw and grass. A bit lemony and a touch of apricot. Intriguing.
Flavor brings in a good dose of rye malt and light, creamy apricot underneath. Velvety smooth. Nice dry finish with good resiny, earthy hops. Gets a bit floral, too, and even a tad sweet.
Feel is very smooth and quite creamy. Balances the rich malt content well.
I'd get this again.

2.5 finger frothy head leaving nice lacing on a clear amber with slight golden hue.
S: Very hoppy with a nice grapefruit note. Light bread notes.
T: Hops and rye which are balanced and each well represented.
M: medium body and moderate carbonation.
Overall a very nice beer with a stronger than usuual rye note that many of these rye beers actually lack despite being rue beers..
Serving type: on-tap
