I picked up this 22oz brown bottle at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL for just $4.99 a bottle. No freshness date, but the label says " 2012 Vintage" on it and this is already June of 2014, so I'm hoping this one isn't over the hill yet.
The beer poured a slightly hazed bronze color and made a 1½-finger white head that lasted about a minute. Lacing was decent.
This smelled like fresh baked rye bread with a little sweetness underneath. It was a great smell.
The beer tasted like rye bread with caramel drizzled over it. The dry hopping also gives it some citrus peel bitterness. The beer is very well balanced - not too sweet, not too spicy, and not too citrusy, with the end result being a delicious neer.
Smooth and medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
If you like rye beers, this is one you absolutely must try.
