I guess expecting a very potent rye flavor in a beer with rye in the name was something I should have tempered given Bluepoint's reputation? Had this on cask, and was expecting a more pronounced rye aroma and bite. Not a bad beer at all, but I've had other beers with rye in the wort which expressed the character of this grain in a much more forward fashion. The aftertaste leaves a pleasant bitterness and earthy spice that hints at rye but I wanted it more front and center.
