look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottle says best by 04/24/14.
Appearance: Pours a deep and fairly hazy brownish amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head which slowly settles into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A toasty, bready, and fairly spicy malt forward aroma. Toasty pale malts with upfront hints of biscuit, grains, wheat, caramel, toffee, yeast, straw, and cracker. Spicy hints of rye bread. Fruity hints of apple and slight citrus orange. Dark fruit hints of raisin, fig, and dates. Subtle hints of earthy and floral hops in the background. A pretty nice bready aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a bready, toasty, and fairly spicy malt driven taste. Toasted pale malts with good notes of biscuit, wheat, grains, caramel, toffee, straw, cracker, and yeast. Good spicy notes of rye bread. Subtle fruit taste with notes of apple and orange as well as some dark fruit notes of fig, raisin, and dates. Light backing notes of earthy and floral hops towards the finish. A pretty solid taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nicely creamy, spicy, and smooth. Finishes fairly dry.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a rye beer. Good toasty malt notes with a nice kick of rye spice.

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.
