I have yet to come across a rye beer that really does it for me, I have even brewed one myself without luck. Glad Sam Adams took a crack at it, and I am certain there is some universal way rye needs to be brewed ...I just don't think that has been descovered yet.

Dry bitter malt, with a hint of hops in the background, lingering afterbite.
