Picked this up as part of mixed 12 pack from Boulevard. Oustanding appearance on the beer, thick and murky looking with a great head that just grabs the glass as it dissipates, beautiful. Not much to offer the nose but very tasty, Good but not great, I enjoyed this one very much and would have no problem having it again. Might not seek it out but would gladly snag it as part of a mixed pack again.

Sampled also on 5/4/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a english pint glass.

Pours a pretty amber brown in color with about a 1/2 finger off-white head. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip which was very surprising actually. The aroma isn't too heavy and is of some grains with a hint of citrus and floral hops. The taste is crisp and sharp with a hint of rye and wheat. Overall, it is different and isn't bad. Perfect carbonation.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle labeled 3353-1033-F-BEST BY 05/18/14. Sampled on April 26, 2014.

The pour is mainly amber brown with a little reddish hue if held to the light. Some cloudiness which could be a chill haze, and little to no head.

Aroma: Well, not much to it. Yup, some rye and barley grain notes and a basically clean hop crispiness but nothing jumps out as out of the ordinary or particularly special.

The body falls in the light to medium range.

The taste brings out a better rye grain character than the nose and then there is a stronger caramel sweetness that kicks in and a fuller bitterness. But this all has to be taken it consideration with the bland aroma. It tastes better than the bland aroma suggests but does that make it better? Not especially. Ho-hum. OK.

Pours a clear, brown color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, citrus hops, hint of floral hops, and hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a rye beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of pale malt, hops, hint of wheat, and a hint of rye. Overall, great appearance, decent body, but lacking in aroma and complexity.

pours out of the 12 oz. stubby bottle a clouded dark amber colour with a frothy light tan head. nice retention and subsequent lace. lightly malted aroma, nondescript with just hints of cocoa and spice. the taste of this ale shows off only bits and pieces of the rye used, mildly spicy, slightly astringent and fleetingly bitter. there are meek notes of choco inspired malts used but any other flavours are hard to pin down. light body and a mouthfeel a bit too watery for a brew such as this. pretty drinkable...just sort of lacking in something.

overall this would have to go down as a miss for me. the malt profile should be ratcheted up a few notches to compliment the rye used. for a rye inspired brew, this misses the target.
