Dark brown in color with great clarity. A fingernail of creamy beige colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Intriguing aroma of rye and cane sugar along with piney hops playing more of a background note. The flavor is comprised of rye,cane sugar,and piney hops. The mouth is moderately carbonated and has the sharp edge from the spicy rye.

A- HUGE airy off white head on a light cloudy darker red body.
S- Rye comes through nicely, spices, citrus hops, grapefruit, grass, and few earthy tones as well.
T- Very interesting and different flavor. Citrus and grass hops blended in a sugary body. Rye comes through nicley and adds a nice twist to the flavor. A light hint of spices come through and builds up on tongue. Light alcohol warms back throat. Rye, dry, light bitterness, and grass flavors all stick around for the aftertaste.
M- Way to carbonated IMO. Medium/full body with really high carbonation.
D- It is a very decent beer. Few things I don't like but mostly it is a very tasty beer. I wouldn't mind drinking more of this at all.

Pours clear brown in color with a 2 finger foamy off white head that has great retention.

Smell is dominated by rye with some Caramel malt in the background. Some floral spicey hop notes are also present which work nicely with the deep rich malt.

Taste follows the nose being rye forward with a rich malty body and some spicy hops and mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good, medium body and medium carbonation. Balances nicely with the spicy hop oils in the finish.

Overall it's understandable why this is one their staples. Rye can be somewhat harsh sometimes but this is really well done.

Man, I love hoppy rye beers, and this is no exception.

This one came from Joe1510 as part of a gigantic collection of awesomeness.

Pours a ruby-brown with a finger of head... but this is a tenacious, creamy, rich, and thick head with attractive lacing.

Aroma is spicy and citric, warm toast and a toffee note.

Taste showcases a slightly rough bittering note beneath a layer of sugar toast and lemon. Rye spice around the edges. Clean finish, but the rough bittering stands through.

A creamy, medium body. Perfect.

In general, I love the look, aroma, and taste of this beer... but it sits rather heavy, and the bittering is particularly forward. Still, a great example of the style, and worth picking up, and perhaps even seeking out for fans of the style. I know I am.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tumbler.

A: Pours a spiced rum brown with a nice two fingered lumpy head that sticks around for a while and leaves some lacing.

S: Malt and hops with a musty earthy backbone. Not too much rye in the nose.

T: The perfectly balanced hops and malts burst onto the tongue first and then the sour rye comes through, leaving a rye aftertaste.

D: Solid drinkability, the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is refreshing and creamy on the tongue.

Overall: I like this one! I like rye bread and I think that the rye was well transferred into the flavour. Its a very original, engaging beer that I will definitely be returning to. Recommended!

A sample from the variety case.
The print the best by date on the bottom of the back side label. This bottle was more than 3 months from this date
The color is a nice copper/red with an tan head .
The smell is like your surround by pine trees.
It tastes the the same pine forest with a very bitter finish. Very creamy.
This beer isn't an everyday beer for me but I wouldn't mind having an occasional Cane & Ebel

Poured into a MJ tasting glass.

Pours a deep orange tinted ruby, with about a finger of tan head made up of mostly tiny bubbles. Very nice lacing.

Aromas of citrusy/earthy hops and rye bread.

First sip is of sweet malt, spicy rye, and citrus and earthy hops. The finish is mostly bitter, with some rye bread notes. Good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. No carbonic bite, very well carbonated.

Mouthfeel is big, chewy, and a slight puckering bitterness. No carbonation prickle. "Softly carbonated."

Very drinkable. If not for the alcohol, this would be a great session beer. One of my favorite Two Brothers beers.

Poured copper amber into an American pint glass, with a thin white head but decent lacing. The smell revealed rye/caraway seeds, some brown sugar sweetness, and some pine. The taste did reveal a nice rye/malt balance, but there was a lingering sweetness mid-palate..maybe overripe orange? It made for a disjointed flavor. The mouthfeel did have a nice carbo feel to it, combined with a medium body. For me, a sipping beer; not for sessioning.

Pours dark amber to brown in color and clear with a minimal light tan head. Light malty sweetness in the aroma, there is also some sweet citrus hops and a light bubble gum or cotton candy sweetness. The light cotton candy like aroma comes thru in the flavor especially as it warms and is unique and enjoyable. There is also some lemon, orange and grassy hops. The beer is light to medium in body and has a nice spicy rye and hop finish that dries the palate at the same time that a slight lingering sweetness balances the dryness. Alcohol is not noticeable to me in the aroma or flavor. Nothing too over the top here but some very well balanced, interesting, and enjoyable flavors came thru close to room temp and made this an easier drinker for me.

It pours a clear, reddish color, and is topped by a dense, foamy, one-finger, beige head that retains well. Initial notes of spicy, rye grains meld well with an herbal, slightly resiny hop character. Swirling brings out a sweet, bready malt undertone, which opens up into notes of molasses upon warming.

There are moderately sweet malty characters upfront. There are notes of bready malts, caramel, light toffee, and chocolate. This moves into a slight spiciness that's part rye, part hops, and part carbonation. The spiciness quickly gives way to a strident, leafy, hop bitterness. Overall very tasty. This Rye Beer is medium-bodied, yet still crisp, and has a nice dose of prickly carbonation.

This beer had great balance. A good, flavorful malt backbone stood up well to a strong hop bitterness.
