Cloudy. Golden. Finger and half of head that faded quickly. Slight carbonation visible. Solid ring of lacing.

Smells understated. Light rye with floral hop undertones. Pick up on sweet maltiness as I come back to it.

Taste underwhelming on front. Some sweet maltiness on front. Some hints of rye in the middle. Fades to citrusy hops with some mild spice on the back end.

Medium body. Smooth on the tongue. Crisp carbonation.

There is nothing amazing about this beer. I find myself using the terms "mild" or "understated" when trying to describe it. A very inoffensive beer. I'm new to ryes, but I really feel like there's just not that much rye here to distinguish it from your average pale ale. Not something to go out of your way for, but certainly a good go to for a nice cold one on a hot summer evening.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass, developed a nice, full head which lasted and laced well. Appearance was a golden straw with a slight cloudiness. Aroma was fruity and sweet with some floral notes. Nice grain taste with floral notes and some malt and hop on the back. Mouthfeel was creamy with a dry, slightly hop aftertaste.

This beer has a light amber color with a medium size head say a finger or two. Carbonation is gentle.
Aroma is mostly of caramel malts. I can't find any hop notes. And rye malts are absent too.
Taste is tart with hints of spicy rye malts. Hops are almost nonexistent. Some evidence of caramel malts.
Drinks dry and bitter.
This is my first truely rye beer. Most ryes come in the form of an IPA so I don't know what I'm drinking. I know this: put some rye in it next time.

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a good sized ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: The rye in this is potent and pleasurable. Earthy and spicy, it gives its distinct aroma. Flowery and herbal hops underneath. A touch of yeast and a moderate neutral malt sweetness.

4.0 T: Tastes as good as it smells. Pretty much the same flavors as in the nose. Earthy, spicy rye, bready yeastiness, mild bitterness, floral and herbal hops, and neutral malt sweetness. There's also a mild peachy fruitiness.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.

4.0 D: Solid beer all around. Pick this up if you're a fan of rye.
