S : very malty with hint of the toasted malts
T : bitter, malty with a strong sense of roasted and toasted malts. Earthy hops and a rye feel.
O: A well crafted beer, very enjoyable ale.

The bitterness subsides after a few sips and mostly a rye malty taste stays through to the finish.

Amber reddish color with a huge beige fluffy head with decent retention and leaving a wall of strong laces.
Light aroma of grainy malt, rye, spicy yeast and earthy hops.
Balanced and bold flavor of rye, roasted and toasted malts, earthy hops, mild pine and lemon, caramel and American Amber Ale yeast. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness and residual taste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Enjoyable brew, a bit one dimensional and could have a more intense aroma, but it is very well balanced and even sessionable.

A - Deep pretty violet. Reminds me of Consecration.

S - Fruity breadiness.

T - Oh yeah that's a red rye if you ask me. Spicy bread. Thought it would be sweeter and fruitier from the smell. A bitter finish. Not too complex but enjoyable rye character.

M - Medium body and crisp amount of carbonation. It's nice.

O - A good rye beer. Slightly uncommon for me, but I liked it.

Overall not bad, but it's something I wouldn't want again.

L - Ruby-brown color with a creamy beige head that covers the glass with stickiness as it dissipates
S - Roast, burnt smell.
T - Little rye, earth, spice, pine, slight fruity aspect, caramel, bread. Caramel most dominant taste.
F - fuller body, creamy, finishes semi-dry and semi-bitter
O - Not bad, it's not a favorite in the rye world.
