12 oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head tulip pint glass.
A- 1/2 finger size head. Dark amber. Minimal lacing.
S- Rich caramel malt, spicy rye, and citrus hops. Very nice!
T- Taste follows the nose. Bitter up front then sweet as it rolls down the tongue and leaves a bitter finish. The rye really rounds out this beer nicely.
M- Creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is slightly higher than most in this style. Drinks very easily,
O- I have not had many rye ales, but according to BA this is the best. I am not surprised. It is a full bodied beer that is so easy to drink. Bear Republic is a solid brewery. Seek this out if you can.
