Solid!

got on sale for $5 in Indiana. Mine looked different, it has a girl boiling a pot of beer with a cow and some grass and rye plants.

some carbonation. amber color. light sweet smell. Taste was great, super light and good pleasant bright yeast character. the rye is pleasant.

I'd rather buy this old beer than the latest double dry hopped craziness that's a month old already.

The Roggenbier is a new style for me, though the label calls it a 'Scandinavian Farmhouse Ale'.

Appearance - Dark amber/brownish color with some floaties/haze. Thick off-white head retains well as a full cap, not much lace left.

Smell - A mix of toasty and sweet malts. Dark rye bread, caramel, molasses, some fruity Belgian yeasts, nutty malts, slight chocolate, even vanilla somehow. Doppelbock-ish with some Belgian-y hints. Pretty nice but strength fades with time.

Taste - A little less complex than the scent but seems more put together. Caramel, dusty chocolate, lots of dark bread, molasses, some dark fruit. Not particularly getting rye or Belgian/farmhouse elements. Mostly a malt bomb with just tiny bits of floral+herbal hops. A bit on the sweet side.

Mouthfeel - Great smooth and malty feel with ample carbonation. Somewhat hefty but pretty well-hidden alcohol.

Overall - The rye malt is kind of lost on me, but judging this as a German malt bomb/bock-type beer this is pretty great. Some unique touches, solid and enjoyable overall.

Bottle: Poured a deep clear brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention with some light lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some light hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by light spicy rye notes with medium hoppy finish with light residua sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but not really memorable.

Beer Here Nordic rye ale

Appearance: cloudy caramel, medium-large head, and some nice lacing.

Smell: rich malts, toffee, and light hops.

Taste: nice rounded pleasant hops, chocolate, and a rye backbone.

Mouthfeel: medium, smooth, and very pleasant.

Overall:
This brew is really great. It can be easily drank and has a great mouthfeel. The aroma is very nice as well. It actually feels pure and clean while going down. I associate it with the charcoal cleaned Jack Daniel's mouthfeel.

Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows bready and nutty malt along with sweet melanoidin notes and a spicy, bready rye hit.
Big malt notes as flavours but there's a weird minty note throughout too.
Carbonation is pretty damn aggressive.
Interesting stuff.
