Just a good beer from Atlas. Easy to drink, clean all the way through. One of the best ales made in the DC region. Deserves another look from this community.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Deep mahogany colored, and slightly red but a bit of a hazy dark rust body color up to the light. Slightly clear but also a bit lifeless. Barely a one finger head forms, very tan with little lacing but manages a thin collar and puck. Basically looks ok, but nothing great.

Aroma gives to some dry grains, and a faint hint of spice. There seems to be a small sense of chocolate but it's very faint. Not particularly hop forward it seems as the can proclaims, but comes off decent enough.

Palate works out kind of surprisngly. Good sense of malt density as a milk chocolate like angle comes out in the mid palate. Finishes very spicy as the rye angle really starts to kick in, with a tannic grainy bitterness but it's a good contrast to counter a bit of the sweet malt that comes over. Hints of twiggy and bark like almost woody character, with some biting down dried grain sensations. Good density even if slightly milky.

Overall a rye beer I can kind of easily enjoy and no think over too much.

On draft at the brewery, pours a dark cola brown, almost opaque, no head, very thin and oily looking.

The nose is earthy, pine, rye, and grain. Lots of toast, straw and malt. The flavor is earthy hops, toasted bread, sweet pepper, and rye. This drinks very smooth and balanced. It is full in flavor, but not heavy and drinkable despite the time of the year.

I like this, but prefer more rye and grass to be present than this one lets on.
