3.34/5 rDev -9.5%
Had at Hingham location
Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, orange-brown in color, clear
Smell: citrus hops and grapefruit
Taste: citrus hops and grapefruit dominate with a touch of caramel. Rye bread comes in strong towards the end and as it warms.
Mouthfeel: slightly sweet start with a bitter middle and a more bitter end, medium body, medium carbonation
Overall: A slightly above average bitter rye beer. I wish the rye was a bit more pronounced, but it is a solid beer. Not a beer I would seek out, nor one that I would turn away.

4/5 rDev +8.4%
16 oz. on tap at Hingham Beer Works
It pours a lovely hazy copper color with a fast-fading off-white head.
A nice bouquet of floral, citrusy and resinous hops are upfront and forward.
The smell of rye crackers and warming alcohol creep in behind.
The flavors match the aromas in every way.
The raw edgy rye malt sweetens as it warms and blends well with with Mr. Barleycorn.
As the glass is at the halfway point (empty or full) it's difficult to not just gulp it down. Very tasty! Very drinkable!

A: Dark brown, but semi-translucent. Pale brown foam.
S: Crisp and malty, but not strong. Scent is barely detectable.
T: Dark and hoppy, yet somewhat sweet. Bitter aftertaste, somewhat floral. Very well-balanced.
M: A bit over-carbonated.
D: Good, but a little too hoppy for more than one.
