A: The beer is crystal clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some acing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and rye malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and mimics the flavors of rye bread, except that it doesn't seem quite as filling as if you were eating a slice of bread. A light amount of spiciness and bitterness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The rye lends a little bite to the finish.
O: This beer doesn't seem nearly as spicy as other rye beers but there is a nice contrast between the different type of malts that are used. It is very easy to drink.

Traces of bottling date info on the neck but not enough to establish when this was sealed. Bought as part of a mixed sixpack at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Boonton New Jersey on my trip south last week.

a: Clear copper/ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and fairly dense lacing.

s: Alcohol and mild caramel malt.

t: Moderate peppery spice up front over a medium caramel malt base. Dry finish.

m: Medium with good body.

o: A good spicy rye, pleasant throughout.
