4.7/5 rDev +25.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
I've had this beer countless times and it still makes my mouth water every time I drink it.
Appearance: Copper/amber blend in body color. A finger of off-white foamy head with good retention, even better lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, citric hops. Nice and earthy aromas. Grainy, toasted malt.
Taste: I've always felt that this beer defines balanced. Very soft fruity, an d citrus hops blended extremely well with the sweet malt.
Feel/Drink: Nice medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Drinkablity is amazing. Another pint please?
Serving type: on-tap

This ale starts off with a dark straw/amber color. Nice egg shell head with a fine bubble rim after it recedes. Nice lacing. This ale has a very malty nose with a taste that follows. Not very complex. Straight forward. This ale has moderate carbonation. Not exactly smooth and sort of thick. I honestly would not recommend this ale. It is not vey complex but if you do open it, you should go ahead and drink the one you opened.

22 oz bottle courtesy of beerloserLI.
Into a pint glass.
A: hazy golden colored bod, one finger white foamy head that dies within a half minute adequate clingy and coated lacing graces the sides of the glass
S: nice rye malt up front (I just did a homebrew rye beer) that helped me pick that out fairly quickly, there's a decent amount of citrus hoppiness coming out along with some pine in an earthy sort of way
T: sweet and somewhat earthy with an adequate spicy flavoring from the rye, everything combines fantastic; somewhat of a spicy yet malty aftertaste and finish (though I do have to admit, the finish does seem slightly grainy as well)
M: sits about a medium on the palate with a decent harshness of a typical Rye Beer trying to pound my mouth and tongue, but for the most part it doesn't as it seems balanced enough to
not let the carbonation add to the pounding of the mouth and tongue, decent sessionability
O: this is a pretty good Rye Beer that I would be willing to have again
