This pours a copper gold with incredible head retention. I caught just a touch of peppery rye backing the lemony hop aroma along with a lightly buttered body that's smooth and crisp. There’s a touch of lemon and crack of peppercorn. I enjoyed this but I'd like it more if it was a sessionable 4% ABV instead of its 6%.
