Bottle served into a kitchen glass. Reviewed as a pale rye ale because it identifies as such in its name. Review is truncated as I wasn't in an ideal environment. Reviewed from notes.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a three finger wide head of white colour. Fluffy complexion. Above average thickness and creaminess. Scattered lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is above average (about 3-4 minutes).

Body colour is a quasitransparrent copper of above average vibrance. Translucent. Supple.

Sm: Nice floral and herbal hop character with a bit of pine in there too. Spicy rye. Pale malts. Some caramalt. Has a nice balance of aromatic malts and hops. A pleasant aroma of mild strength.

T: Pale malts and a dash of rye comprise the bulk fo the body. Floral hops dominate the hop profile with a hint of piney character. Nicely balanced, if simple. No complexity here, but maybe a bit of subtlety with the rye. A bit too bitter. Somewhat soapy - this may have spent too long in primary fermentation. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

Mf: Soft, smooth, and wet. Slightly overcarbonated. Not oily. Decent thickness and body.

Dr: Drinkable but far from great. A pretty average pale ale from Real Ale at a fair price point. I doubt I'd get it again. Pretty unremarkable overall. I'd like to see a bit more rye in the grain bill.
