Poured one finger of head on a clear, amber colored body.
The aroma is red licorice, rye spice and lemon.
The taste is moderate bitterness with a slight honey sweetness and finishes with a bold bitterness. Nice profile.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable red rye ale.

Poured a reddish brown and had nice head retention and lace. A rather light, nondescript aroma for a rye beer as I get a little bit of roasted and sweet malts, along with citric hops and rye, but nothing really going on here and it's a little odd. Smooth, easy to drink, this isn't a bad beer in my opinion but it just seems to misfire. The rye gives it a little dryness and heartyness, and the sweet malts and hops are in there and balanced but as I finished my glass it was more grainy and harsh than anything resembling sweetness or hoppiness. A good beer but not one of the greats.

Mix a six pick up at Shoprite Wines. Twelve ounce bottle in pint glass.

Pours crimson reddish brown with virtually no foam on top. Just a smattering of white. Toffee rye nose, subtle sweetness. Pleasing. Rich malty taste with a rye hop bitter in the middle that rolls into sweet finish. Nice bite. Solid mouthfeel. Everything really works together for a tasty end result.
