Bottle and on tap at the brewery - pours a clouded tawny color with a 2 finger capl Aroma is spicy, malty, slightly herbal with some light mustiness. Medium bodied, peppery mouth feel, spicy rye character. Flavor has the malts come frontside for a second - spicy rye and a little toastyness, before the hops balance it out well - clean lightly bitter-spicy finish with a hop bite at the end. Very solid rye ale and the best offering from this brewer so far.

First time trying the microbrew beer from my hometown. All I can say is very good.
Pours a gold and orange colour. Very clear (despite being unfiltered). Little to no head on it though.
Smell is a little strong but not potent.
Taste was very good. Strong, but not overwhelming. Stronger then the Capital Blonde.
The only complaint I have is the carbonation. When it poured, there was no head on it. Carbonation dissapeared quickly. Although this was not the case when I sampled the beer from the tap. We will see on the second bottle.
Overall I was very happy with this beer. Price was a little expensive, but its local, small batch, and fine ingredients. I will be purchasing again in the near future.
Keep it up guys!

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves little lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of spicy rye, toffee, caramel, bready/biscuity malts and floral hops.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some rye, sweet toffee/caramel, buiscuity malts, some breadiness, faint floral notes and a grassy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

Nice hoppy rye experience. Interesting caramel colour, little head
Typical (but not unpleasant) orange-peel-bitterness aftertaste.
Definitely a thirst-quencher. For me, more of a spring- summer beer than a winter-fall, which is odd given the rye.
