Bottle's best by date: 08/14/14
Very clear, deep copper body with a thick, creamy head. Faint aroma of caramel and vague spiciness. Mild rye bread flavors with a sharp hop bitterness at the finish. Medium-light body; crisp and dry finish.
A decent drinking if rather unexciting beer. The rye punch comes through in the taste primarily yet the beer, on whole, seems rather bland and watery, at least initially. The smell was pretty faint and hard to pickup on although it is there. Subsequent sips reveal a bit more depth with the malt base and rye, so it can (does) grow on you. With a 30% rye grain bill, I expected a bit more rye oomph.

Best by 8/14/14.
Good looking. Nice full head with torrents of bubbles rising through a nice amber body of copper.
A little tight on the aroma. A little malt and I struggle to find any hops.
Soft rye spiciness and a mellow shot of bitterness for hops. Smooth malt flavors overall.
Filling body from the carbonation, but the gas isn't too intense in the mouth, instead having a softer quality overall.
As warms the rye shows stronger with a crackling quality, which is fun.
