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.
