fashioned as a session summer brew, i think its mostly successful in that way. very light copper in color with a nice nose of floral hops and extremely laid back rye malt peppery zest. its not as flavorful as it could be, especially on the rye front, and it cant hold much head in the glass. those are my only two real critiques of this otherwise satisfying pale ale type. the rye adds just a little uniqueness to a grain bill dominated by pale two row. the hops are long in the finish, fresh and bitter, which again works with the rye element. carbonation is pretty solid despite the lack of head in the glass. the low alcohol also keeps it flowing. a good intermezzo type beer in a session. something interesting enough and easy down enough to cleanse the palate but not waste precious alcohol capacity or belly room. best in that context, less so in isolation on a chilly fall afternoon, but i think its quite a serviceable ale overall.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell and taste featured doughy malts, a grassy hop and a touch of diacytl.

The mouthfeel was soft with a lingering spice.

Overall a decent ale.

This is a wonderful beer that is set up to be completely misunderstood by the craft beer public in my opinion. It has been my experience that when people hear rye in a beer they expect to be knocked over by spicy, zesty malted rye. Not so the case here and it is a subtle and masterful use of the rye that makes this one so good to me.

A) 3.8 It pours a bright almost clear golden hue with a hint of haze. White head is nicely sized and leaves some nice lacing. A gentle stream of carbonation is constantly moving up to the surface in my tradition pint ale glass.

S) 3.8 The aroma of malt is peppered with subtle rye notes. Lemongrass and honey lean into a bit of earthy hops alone with spicier Saaz flashes.

T) 4.2 Light sweet golden malt is seriously amped up by the rye undercurrent. This is a golden ale that drinks like a hybrid between a hoppy pilsner and an earthy english ale. The malt is more ale like but the rye gives a peppery zing that makes it dryer and crisper. Yeast give an English fruitiness that couches a bit of the lemon and honey from the nose. Hops are firm but laid back and make for a wonderful finish. Some hop oil and citrus linger for a bit but it is basically a clean finish with a delightful crispness.

M) 4.0 Feel is light with spot on carbonation and a light creaminess that makes for a quenching and refreshing brew.

O) 4.0 A great summer session ale that hits the spot for me. More complex than a pilsner but just as crisp and refreshing. Great english ale yeast component. Excellent and wonderful refreshment.

Snagged up a mixed 12 pack of Davidson at a supermarket while traveling through Glens Falls, NY. Definitely a a lager which poured golden in color from the bottle. Floral sweet smell almost as if belgian yeast was being used. Session beer lager style, low abv. Overall midle of the road beer.

12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into an SA pint. Best before NOV 2013 notched.

Ours a deep golden color with some slight haziness. Thin white head fades to a skim layer, decent lacing.

Earthy, mine rally, lager like yeast?, sweet grain, no rye.

Quite a bit of sweet cereal grain, not really getting any rye, maybe a hint only because I know some is in there. Comes off a bit lagery again, maybe more so in the aroma.

Light, crisp, refreshing.

Drinkability is all this has going for it. Despite its bland, light flavor, this still would have been a decent summer drinker had it had some rye qualities. Similar to an adjunct lager, only slightly better.
