A= Poured chest-nut brown/copper in color nice foamy white head that stuck around for awhile and left some really nice lacing.

S= Rye comes out of the nose and is pretty strong, I also picked up on some hops and a little bit of citrus notes.

T= Toasted rye is the main flavor in this one. I was surprised on how much hops came out in the flavor it was pretty hoppy which surprised me nicely.

M= Very clean crisp beer, good carbonation

O= Overall I enjoyed this beer wasn't to much to it but it still was a great beer and really enjoyed it.
