Brewed at the Hopcat in conjunction with Michael Plank. Sampled on 8/14/08 and reviewed from notes.

On-tap poured into a nonic pint.

A- Nice, hazy, golden/orangeish/brown body. Not much of a head, lace, or stick.

S- Not a very strong smell. Definite rye aroma mixed with earthy hops. Maybe a touch of wheat-like scent.

T- Real rye flavor comes through with light hopping. Honey doesn't come through as a honey flavor, but may add just a touch of sweetness and alcohol.

M- Smooth feel.

D- It's an easy drinker. I'm impressed with my first Hopcat House Brew.
