3.53/5  rDev +2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a diconic with "bottled on 10/06/11"
stamped on the bottle neck. (seems a little old for a local beer)

Fairly light amber color with a decent head but only about one finger that disappears rapidly.

Predominant smell is the rye malt, not much else. Maybe some wheat.

The rye malt also dominates the taste. Gives it a nice peppery bite. Aftertaste is a strong bitterness.
(It looks like a lot of reviewers are not recognizing that it is
RYE malt that is the "unusual" taste and smell that many mention. The rye is noted on the bottle label and was
mentioned to me by the Left Hand employee that sold me
the beer)

The feel is really nice with a continuous pleasant fizz.

Overall, it's kind of sessionable if you really are into a bitter aftertaste.

3.61/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a. Nice golden/orange color. Not much head, 1 finger in a tulip glass.

s. Not Pale Ale like. Breads, some slight citrus, malt.

t. Nothing pale here. This is more like a lager. Not much spice, which was on the label. Pretty straight forward beer.

m. This is velvet in the mouth. Not a lot of carbonation, but something silky smooth about it.

o. On the very good side of good, slightly. would revisit, might not seek out.
