Thanks to Dennis for importing this for me in his travels.
1 year old, properly cellared, poured into a Belgian style wine glass.
Appearance- Beer pours a bit chill hazed but otherwise fairly clear and pale, golden into the glass with a half finger of foamy head that leaves ample lacing on the sides of the glass. Quite honestly, it looks like a pale.
Smell- I'm catching the rye right away (har.) and the pale nuances immediately following, this smells exactly on point to what a Rye beer should be like in the rye pale category. An almost woodsy spiciness that really rounds out the beer.
Taste- Hops and rye are still quite apparent after a year and the pale hasn't lost anything by the cellaring as I had feared it would. Very smooth, carbonation scrubbing my tongue very nicely, even after drinking a tongue ripping Belgian IPA, the smoothness of this pale is unavoidable.
Mouthfeel- The mouthfeel here is very impressive with it's velvety smoothness, a certain creamy texture, medium high in carbonation, medium light bodied.
Drinkability- I'm sad to say this is my last beer of the six pack that I got long ago. This is one I would pick up again if I were traveling through Texas. Sadly, that is not on the itinerary coming up in any of my travels soon.
