Had on tap at GI Clybourn. Served in a mini-nonic.

A: Pours a clear golden amber color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. Nice retention as it cascades down the glass leaving behind some sticky sheets.

S: Lemony and citrusy with sweet pale malt backbone. The rye is there with a little wheat-like spice.

T: Much more lemony in the taste, it takes on an almost Pledge-like flavor with a mild soapiness to it. Pretty herbal as well with the rye spice coming in mid palate. The finish is a light dose of sweet malts.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Pretty easy drinking despite the taste.

O: This was alright. If it was dialed back on the lemon citrus a little bit it would have been a very nice beer.

A rye pale ale. Served in an imperial pint glass at Wrigleyville.

A: Amber-orange body with a nice white head.

S: Mild rye grain, a bit of caramel sweetness, light grass and marmalade hop notes.

T: Earthy rye, mildly spicy, leafy bitterness, apricot, a bit of vanilla on the end. Dry finish.

M: Light-bodied with creamy carbonation.

O: Not the most impressive rye pale ale. The hop presence could be more assertive.
