Draft at Bells. Pours dark brown/black with minimal head. Aroma is distinctive rye grain, citrus fruits. Taste is big hit of citrus, rye, smokey tones. Rye is the star and comes out nicely balanced. Delicious. This is trendy these days but Bells was out ahead of the curve and has produced another good variant here.
Serving type: on-tap

Thank you jebus, finally more fractioned ratings.
A: Pretty nice dark brown. A molasses color. Head is pretty weak.
S: An earthy acidity comes through. A bit of maltyness.
T: Very smooth. Malt, a kiss of alcohol, a bit of rye, a bit of smokiness. Pretty solid. A bit light.
M: Smooth, medium body. Finish is a bit too light and watery.
Overall this is a pretty solid beer. The flavors are all subtle which is both good and bad. It makes for an easy to drink beer. Problem is the finish is weak and I can't pinpoint any outstanding qualities. Pretty nice beer and worth checking out.
Serving type: growler
