look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 12/26/13 at 40 degrees into standard pint
Aroma light hops and rye spiceness
Head average (4 cm), white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 4 -8 mm layer.
Lacing poor – few small islands of small bubbles
Body light yellow, chill haze
Flavor spicey, slight hop citrus; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very nice pale ale, very easy to quaff to excess. A very pleasing appearance, light aroma and flavor, and enjoyable palate.
