Thanks to Jlang2012 for sending this one as an extra for our trade! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a bright copper, nearly completely clear, with one and a half fingers of white head that fades fairly quickly, and moderate visible carbonation.

S: A sweet smell, with biscuity malts. And not much else.

T: Follows the nose - a pretty simple beer. Malt forward, biscuity and a bit of wild grain flavor with a flowery honey sweetness and a touch of grassy bitterness from a restrained hop presence.

M: Medium body, alcohol very well-hidden given the ABV and the style, and good carbonation sensation.

O: Nothing objectionable here, but very much nothing exciting. I don't get any particular rye flavor from the malt profile. But it's an easy beer to drink, malt-forward and sweet without being cloying.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear golden amber in color with moderate to significant amounts of visible carbonation and orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy light beige head that quickly reduces to a large mottled patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts with caramel and honey sweetness along with some floral hops and just a touch of rye spiciness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready and caramel malts with a light amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate amounts of rye spiciness and hints of floral and spicy hops. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy.

O: A pretty nice offering from the students at App State and Olde Hickory - I wish there was a little more of the rye spiciness to the smell of the beer but the alcohol is well hidden, it is easy to drink, and I enjoyed it.

22oz. Slightly darker golden pour, finger of white head retained well. Laces the glass just a bit.

Aroma, kind of sweet up front. Caramel and sweeter malt. Some spicy bread and earthy herbal like hops.

Taste, hops are mostly herbal, a little citrus. A grainy light bread maltyness. I'm guessing the honey really smoothed this out and it shows in the drinkability.

A creamy but lighter body. Under control abv and very drinkable.

Kind of a sweeter the pale ale, well executed and a very nice few.

A: pours a clear orange with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: sweet honey, crystallized sugar, and citrusy hop notes up front before spicy rye and wheat bread aromas bring up the finish.

T: similar to the aroma, there is an interesting mix of honey, light citrus and pine hop flavors, spicy rye bread, and hearty wheat. The finish is lightly bitter.

M: medium body and carbonation, this beer is surprisingly drinkable for having so much honey used in it.

O: an enjoyable and interesting beer overall.

Fresh 22 oz bottle, dated best by Nov. 2013, served in a snifter.

A rather vigorous pour only roused a small head, but it had decent retention and lacing nonetheless.

Aroma: mild, bready malts; lightly fruity with a touch of hops and a hint of honey. Rye is subtle here, especially compared to the flavor.

Taste: less sweet, more bitter and more hoppy than expected. Spicy rye is fairly prominent. Hard to differentiate the hops and the rye because they blend so well. Only mildly bitter but has the hop level of a typical pilsner. Nice sweet malts and hints of honey and caramel in the mix too.

Medium body; quite dry and moderately crisp. Should be a bit smoother.

O: a pleasant and somewhat distinctive brew that's less sweet than might be expected. Readily recommended to fans of rye beers.
