From a 22 oz. bomber with no obvious freshness markings into a pint glass. Coppery clear color with slim threads of carbonation. One finger tan head fades to half and holds; good lacing. Nose is sweet with a hint of hops and not much else. Rye? Perhaps something grainy/grassy is there. In the mouth, surprisingly tasty compared to nose. Malt up front, slightly bready, with a definite spiciness. A friend said it tasted of unprocessed wheat but I didn’t get much “rye.” Definitely a pleasant, semi-sweet spiced flavor that is enjoyable. Moderate hops presence evens things out. Mouth his smooth and viscous, fitting to this beer’s character. Overall, pretty tasty in its own right. This is my first “rye” ale so I’m not sure what to make of it. It’s spicy and malty yet with a nice hops bite. Good; recommended.
