Poured from a growler picked up at the brewery this weekend.

A - Brown/Red with a finger of head. Some lacing leftover. Nothing special.

S - Fruity, citrus hops, and a bit of spicyness from the rye. Very nice.

T - Everything a rye beer should be. Spicy, citrusy/grassy hops, a bit malty. Grapefruit and pineapple.

M - Medium carbonation and a bit resiny.

This is another great brew from Stoneface and their lineup so far has been stellar. I slightly prefer their bigger IPA but this is an awesome rye beer. Looking forward to seeing what else these guys brew.

On tap at the source
Reddish brown color. Earthy spicy pine aroma with bits of bread and caramel to counter. Spicy earthy bite in the flavor with just enough malt to balance. Nice rye beer.

Poured on-tap at a bar in Portsmouth, NH

A - Brownish Red. Average.
S - citrus, fruity and a mild spice. Enjoyable for sure
T - Citrus and spicy. Malty too. A very solid Rye beer.

Really liked this beer a lot. Ended up having 2 when that was not the plan :) Looking forward to stopping by next weekend to try some of their other beers.

Consumed on draft at the thirsty moose in Dover, NH.

A-Color was a red amber with moderate carbonation served in a Red Hook pint glass...
S-Spicy, sweet, earthy, not usually a rye type of guy with hoppy offerings but this seems promising.
T-Wow, comes at you with everything that I actually enjoy in brown ales. The smooth, spicy, crushable characteristics, then follows with a really great blast of earthy, grassy, resinous hops. Finishes clean with no unpleasant lingering bitterness.
M- Slick and viscous mouth feel influenced by the rye/heartier malts...Medium carbonation
O-I would say that this is my close second place offering from Stoneface with the IPA being first.This beer is awesome and I hope they bottle it so I can enjoy at home like I do the IPA. Keep going guys you really are doing a great job!
