look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Golden brown, with slight opacity, a solid half inch of head on the pour, lacing.

S - Floral and pine, with some hint of spice.

T - Clean bitter brew, with a spicy, peppery note, and a close which comes in with bready rye notes. A good malty sweetness and honey notes complement the bitterness.

M - Moderate carbonation, strong drying.

O - A decent quaff, and easy to drink. Not a huge fan of rye bread; I find it overpowering. So I welcome the muted rye notes which have many of the virtues of the bread without bowling me over. I liked this beer's balance, and I'd drink it again.
