Cornerstone's beer menu said that their Rusty Pheasant is made with 20% flaked and malted rye and contains 22 IBUs, 14 P, and a 5.9% ABV to back it up. Cornerstone also mentioned that this beer is a cult classic. It was served in a nondescript standard American pint glass.

Rusty Pheasant poured a hazy yellowish amber color with a half an inch head of white foam that had OK retention that left behind a few white rings along the edge of the beer and a smidge of white lace around the glass. It started off with a light aroma of toasted malts, a few juicy fruits, and a small hint of malted rye in the background. When swirled around and only when the beer is swirled around, a banana aroma will emerge from out of nowhere to cover up the initial aroma. It had a slightly dry taste toasted malts, a pinch of malted rye, a splash of juicy fruits, and finished off with a mild toasted hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied with a slight aftertaste of malted grains and a few hops. Rusty Pheasant made for a decent average refreshing spring time beer. I enjoyed my time with the Rusty Pheasant.
