3.53/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: The first pout created a huge head but subsequent pours were more as expected, bringing a hazy amber head to settle on top of the honey colored liquid
Smell: Lemony and grassy, with a biscuity undertone
Taste: Biscuity malt brings a hint of sweetness, but the hops and the rye take over rather quickly; lemon, grass and a spicy/peppery character emerge; very bitter, after the swallow, with a rather metallic edge to the bitterness; dry finish, as would be expected from a rye beer
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation
Overall: An interesting twist but I am not a fan of the flavor profile here, particularly in the metallic edge
Serving type: bottle
