a clean copper pour with a slight amount of white foam around brim of glass. smells of sweet malts, roasting caramel, nutty, rye.

taste is slightly sweet up front with a nice nutty flavor. backbone is all rye. slightly bready with hints of banana on the finish. a very unique tasting rye ale with a medium body, patchy lacing with a slight creamy feel on the lips, and high, yet subtle carbonation.

as far as rye ales go, this is a hit. a very sweet beer throughout with a copper-like bitterness that follows minutes after the glass is over. you just feel it calling to you to drink some more! a very tasty pour and quite complex for a rye ale.

Pours a light cloudy copper with golden edges with a finger of white head that retained for a bit and left nice lacing on the glass. The nose has mild rye notes along with some hops. As far as the flavor, the sweetness of the malt combines well with the bitterness of the hops and the spice of the rye. Everything is present, but the entire intensity of the flavor profile is less than expected. This is a very sessionable offering, but nothing spectacular.
