look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with a rusty tinge much like the hide of a deer. No carbonation. Cloudy, huge slight tan head of 4 fingers fades relatively fast but holds to 2 fingers, a little chunky lacing.

S: Bananas, reminiscent of weizenbock in scent and colour, some peppery yeasts reminding me of a dark Belgian style ale, slight smokiness reminiscent of Unibroue’s La Terrible. Some paint.

T: Really unique, unexpected. I get what starts like a weisenbock, then levels to a much flatter level of almost watery consistency with bananas and cloves, some black pepper, then near the end the paint comes in and an essence of Belgian yeasts. Light sourness, but certainly not lambic like. It comes across more as a dry nearly watery quality that is thirst quenching.

M: Medium body, little carbonation, dry all the way through.

O: Never had this style before, but it is certainly unique. I love the idea of rye beers, but I don’t have anything really to compare this with as its my first Roggienbier. Dry and unique, but nothing really standing out to make it interesting. It wants food, and by that I mean I see myself not drinking this for the outstanding flavor, but more for its unique even keeled character, or perhaps as refreshment on a hot day. Cool label.

Resurrection Roggenbier doesn't rise from any flames but does look ablaze; this burning amber beer is alight with clarity and fiery copper highlights. Its head even sits atop the surface like a small pile of ashes. The Hunger Games-like bottle art seems somehow befitting.

Rye and wheat are nothing alike - pumpernickel is nothing like a standard white loaf - and yet, when it comes to the beer world, it's not uncommon for the two styles to share similar aromatics; this has a lot of the perfumy clove and mushy banana characteristics of a weizen. It is expressively spicy and savory, with bubblegum esters and hints of the grain itself.

The palate, not unexpectedly, offers the same spicy, toasty graininess of a quality Canadian rye, except that it tastes as though the beer were blended with a German Hefeweizen; the whole banana-bread flavour tastes doused in clove and entwined with bubblegum. It is, as its bouquet promised, a well seasoned and highly zesty profile.

The finish is especially peppery, its spice compounded by considerably prickly bubbles. There's an ounce of tangy citrus acidity that also presents a light stinging sensation. I tend to think of rye beers has being hearty, coarse and grainy but this one - more a traditional Roggenbier than American-style Rye Beer - has all the fragrance and effervescence of a weissbier.

Cameron's Resurrection is a considerably unique offering; you don't find many roggenbiers. Indeed, there is far too much clove and peppery yeastiness to appreciate any of the conventional pumpernickel or sweet, toasty graininess that many (myself included) have become accustomed to tasting in rye beers. Ja, gute Arbeit sicher!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured a nice reddish dark ruby brown, with some slight head and good retention. Agitating the sediment as recommended on the bottle gets a murky brown.
S- lot of rye spiciness, chili, nutmeg, pepper, some pleasant caramel malt, biscuit notes.
T- spicey and a touch tart, lively herbal spice, ginger, pepper. Fairly smooth body with little hops, some herbal gruit character, gale maybe, Leads to a dry herbally finish. Balanced pretty well but there isn't a lot of complexity.
M- moderate to light body, but with a coating spice tart aspect and slight carbonation, it drinks pretty well but needs a firmer malt profile I thing, finish gets a bit grassy.
A decent rye heavy beer with lots of spice and herbal notes, it's a fairly good all round beer, rye is very evident but there isn't a ton else going on, balance is good and it's got a herbed/tonic character that is cool but not really what I was expecting. Worth a try but short if outstanding.

Bottle: Poured a light brown color ale with a generous head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of rye malt with light spicy notes. Taste is quite smooth with some spicy notes and a smooth finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Maybe a tad too dry for its own good and a bit too much notes of unrefined grain to be highly drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Muddy copper colour, moderate head that settles to a partial film and leaves some lace. Average looking brew.

Spicy nose like a weak-kneed weizen. Comes across the same way tastewise, spicy, banana-fruity, but a touch metallic with a thin brittle mouthfeel. Slightly sour finish. I just found it too understated to be interesting or satisfying. Nothing in it that pops.

Bomber from the Ottawa LCBO for $6

Appearance - Slightly hazy reddish brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, rye, grass/herbal

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and rye. There is also some grassy notes and a bit of a fruity (banana?) flavour.

Overall - A decent very drinkable and well balanced beer, but nothing that is all that exciting. Worth picking one bottle up but not something I'd buy again.

Not all that rye and using a banana imparting yeast. Lacy. The Only Café. So-so drinkability, ok as a beer. Brown coloured body, small head.Somewhat rough.Clove and spice. Toasted malt, not that interesting a rye beer, needs something else to make it interesting.

Serving type: on-tap
