Always nice to come across a new rye beer.

Overall, a pretty decent ale here. Consistent hop influence with mild resin and some pine on as well. Mild spice tones from hops also. Smooth. Pretty easy drinking. Certainly not bland and not trying to obliterate your palate. A nice beer.

DATE TASTED: October 18, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... OCCASION: another booty of beer for beating Ryan in fantasy baseball--prosit, friend!... APPEARANCE: medium-dark brown body that cascades upward thoroughly; head is almost as white as Santa's beard-- thick and frothy with thick lacing... AROMA: bright rye scent reminiscent of vanilla and clove; some cinnamon and cookie dough as well; nicely complex..PALATE: full-bodied, big in the mouth and substantial in its aftertaste; nicely balanced...TASTE: an ale that retreats at its impact; actively citric at the throat but easy-drinking with a doughy exhale...OVERALL: a slap of something heavier hits at the glass's bottom; a winner in the sense that most pales occupy the same space on the tongue, while this beer--and Otto's is a great place to enjoy beer, BTW--engages in a slightly nuanced way with some extra ABV to boot...

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with short lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, fruit jam and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy hops, ripe fruit, caramel malt and spices fill the mouth. Finish is long and slightly bitter. Tasty, nicely balanced brew.
