A Murky brown/amber. Thick white head. Really thick, doesn't fade quickly. Fat lacing remains down the glass.

S Rye, obviously, but lots of it. Sweet malt. Hops. Something tart, lime maybe.

T Thick wet grains. Rye, wheat. Slight sweetness and zestiness, apples, orange peel, cinnamon.

M Nice rich foamy mouthfull. Finishes with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. Still nice and refreshing.

O I liked this very much. Boulevard, to me, has always made good beers and I flat out love some of their offerings, but this kicks it up a bit. This is the most quality brew I've had from them. The flavors blend so well. Sweet, dry, bitter and the rye is present but does not overtake everything. The best rye beer I've ever had.

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.

Dark brown color with a nice thick fluffy tan head... Smell is of roast, candied fruit, slight hops not over powering... Slightly sweet, with some sour notes on the back of the tongue... malt/hop balance is nice.. Not usually a huge rye beer fan but this is pretty good and really easy to drink. Would buy a sixer if made available.
