As a fan of Bell's and of rye beers I felt inclined to try this offering. Though it was met with mixed reviews, I am very glad I tried this offering. This ale pours a hazy beautiful golden amber color with a thick frothy white head that lasts throughout the pour. There is a significant amount of lacing for such a light bodied ale. The nose is very subtle with fresh flavors of rye and a little yeast. Almost smells more European than American in nature. The flavor is light and subtle as well. Slightly bitter and sweet at the same time with definite notes of yeast and rye. It is very light and easy sipping. By far not my favorite offering from Bell's or my favorite rye ale but none the less a very enjoyable ale that could be sessioned all day or just enjoyed as a refreshing quaff after work.
