Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. Decent appearance, a little head and amber colour, a bit of lace. On the sweet side, with some fruitiness. Average mouthfeel, suitably carbonated. Just boring as sweet malty without an edge.Saved room for the IPA and DIPA.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a slightly hazy amber color and a modest head that quickly disappears after leaving some perfunctory lace

Smell: Not much aroma until it warmed and, then, the rye was readily apparent, with its peppery, slightly sour character

Taste: Opens with a Germanic crackery malt flavor that, introduces an English fruit aspect before moving on to an American peppery, sour rye mid-palate flavor that builds, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Drinkability: More interesting than enjoyable but kudos to the brewer for the experimentally complex style

At the brewery.
Nice copper color with a thick head with decent retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Mild aroma with notes of nuts and peppermint.
Flavor with predominant notes of rye spices, mild pine, lots of caramel malts, Brazilian guarana and herbal hops. Dry aftertaste with a mild to medium bitterness.
Soft and easy to drink Rye. I would like to have felt more spicy notes from Rye.

A visually pretty beer with lots of fluffy head and a cyclone of gripping lace. Yet somehow all these suds emerge from a body with little carbonation. Yellow-gold color and very clear, with a plump body and yeasted nose. The taste is biscuity with yeasted overtures. It's not exactly crisp and dry as I expect rye ales to be, but the drinkability is intact. Very nice.

A - A clear reddish gold, not too much head, but then again the bartender filled this to the very brim for me.

S - Not too much going on in the nose. Some fruity esters noted along with a light hop, kinda has the smell of an American Pale Ale.

T - Definitely makes up for the relative lack of aroma. This is one of those German liquid sustenance beers; it's literally like ripping into a loaf of quality German rye bread that happens to be spiced with some hop. Pretty strong bitter rye taste going on. Very dry and crisp.

F - A good carbonated bite only aids the drying sensation.

D - An excellent beer, though seems like more of a meal replacement than a session beer; hearty and filling. I don't know of too many other rye beers; it's a cool style and the Titanic executes it well.

another beer that I had high hopes for, this Rye ale is, if anything, very refreshing. A good reasonable hopey flavor and a semi sweet body, this beer felt far more drinkable than the bitters or the IPA, a good in-between for anyone coming here who is getting tired of sweeter flavored beer. Despite that, it really didn't feel that Special to me.

A 7/10. I do not know if I would ever have this one again.
