Served in a standard Pint Glass

A- Pours a very nice amberish color with a nice looking white head. Head dissipates and leaves a nice amount of lacing throughout. Very attractive beer.

S- Nose of this beer is a little subdued but has seems to have a very balanced smell. Neither hop, nor malt seem to dominate the smell. It definitely has a little rye spice to the nose.

T/M- Very well balanced beer. Hops, Malt, and the perfect spice from the Rye. Extremely drinkable with a medium body. Very difficult to detect any alcohol.

O- Such an amazing beer. Perfectly balanced, and soooo easy to drink. I wish this was a year round brew for SN!
