4.08/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Creamy yellowish head. Excellent head retention. Deep amber color. Lots of carbonation.

S: Malty, bready with an extremely subtle citrus note.

T: Malty and bready. Delicious. I love rye's breadiness.

M: Full.

D: Hell yea. It's great for a sessionable beer but it's not my favorite one.

Serving type: on-tap

4/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque copper color, with a white head.

S: Spicy rye, bready malt, a subdued floral and piney hop character in the nose.

T: More spicy rye, some wheat, some bready malt, hop flavor is still piney, floral and subdued.

M: Medium bodied, a bit harsh.

O: Recommended if you want a rye beer that doesn't have a strong hop character to it. This beer really focuses on the rye and other malts. That said, I enjoyed it.
