3.46/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: 3.25: Not much of a head ever really developed and I cranked the pour. Just kind of a generic amber color in appearance.
Smell 3.50: Good bouquet. Hops, barley...some slight spiciness present from the rye.
Taste 3.50: Front is dry, but some hoppiness seeps in. Middle is also dry, but a nice hop blend swims to the surface. Also, you can taste a few glimmers of a slightly spicy rye hint in this taste level. Finish is almost empty. It actually cascades back to the middle with more of the barley and the hops, but finishes very abruptly. Aftertaste is, strangely, of medium length and finishes on a dry and somewhat cumin-like taste that is very subdued.
Mouthfeel 3.25: Good, but like the rest of their beers, too many bubbles.
Overall 3.5: A pretty solid offering. The label has a few señoritas and a Tommy Chong-esque character in a low-rider with a suspicious substance in his hands...better hope Wal-Mart doesn't find out, guys. Regardless of the usual Sweetwater foolishness, this is a good beer for sessions. Would also go pretty well with food as it is not sweet at all and the rye is not overpowering. Try it out.
