A growler filled at Right Brain on 20-Jul-09.

A: The ale is an amber (surprise, surprise) ale, brown and just dark enough to be opaque. A decent-sized head of a finger and a half laces nicely around my glass.

S: The nose is laden with rye and white bread. A very full aroma that doesn't skimp on a hoppy citrus profile.

T: The ale's body is very bready, with pale and caramel grains and a firm heaping of rye. The dark spicy rye adds significant depth, coaxing out a firm citrus hop profile. The whole package is a very accessible ale that could easily pass for a pale ale.

M: The ale is very approachable with quite a bit of flavor ringed out of the hops and rye. A very sesionable ale.

D: The low abv and solid flavor makes this a winner. The ale's flavor profile will not disappoint.

Thanks to akorsak for bringing back and sharing a growler of yummy RBB brew!

A-Deep, dark brownish amber with a medium off-white head that reduced to a thin cap and left decent lace.

S-Dry, spicy rye malt overlying a pan of fresh biscuit malt and a popping citrus hop zip.

T-Robust biscuit and lightly sweet caramel malt all getting down and hapy with a pleasant dose of spicy rye. Juicy citrus hop zip adds nice balance to the malt base.

M-Medium bodied, sharp, dry and crisp. Nice lingering rye spiciness and citrus hop bitterness.

D-Five percent with a ton of flavour--->what more could you ask for? This is a fine session brew that delivers the goods!
