Nice beer. Great aroma, like the deScription - rye bread with a hint of lemon. Flavor’s like nose, bittersweet. Don't pick up much of the spices. Very drinkable.

This is one of the worst tasting beers I have ever had! couldn't even finish half a glass. I think this is only the second time I have poured freshly opened craft beer down the drain. Tasted soapy, and a bit like urine. Maybe I just got a bad batch?

Malt forward. Lacking that characteristic spiciness that I expect from a rye ale.

Heavy chill hazed red colored beer with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells strongly of rye and very spicy. Spicy and faintly sour there is a substantial earthy rye aroma. Sweet malt with a strong caramel scent. Faint cookie dough scent.

Starts out a little sweet a spicy with a big rye flavor. Slightly earth rye taste the after taste is the sweet part. Slight mushroom taste. Bitterness level is low.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty rte beer for sure, a recommended beer.

bomber purchased at the brewery

a: into an avery snifter, the pour produces a finger deep, frothy head of khaki colored carbonation, receding to a complete layer and ring around the glass and spotty lace, good retention, conditioning yeast spilling from the neck of the bottle, the beer itself a hazed, medium maple-amber in color

s: nose heavy on the rye, with a pleasant sweet/spicy character, lots of bread, some toasted and nutty caramel, hops earthy and grassy, a solid yeast aroma, fruity esters with notes of apple, grape and a touch of green banana, I like it

m: carbonation low-moderate, smooth and creamy on the tongue at first, with a lighter medium body that finishes a little watery

t: opens with a big hit of spicy rye on a backing of bready pale malts, nutty and toasted grains, quite dry from the midpoint with some very metallic (especially when cold) hop flavors growing towards the finish, moderately bittered with lingering flavors of grain and metal

o: the nicely done aroma sets up the slightly less moving flavor experience, which lacked the depth of the aroma where the unpleasantly metallic hops take over midway, not a bad beer but could use a little reworking in parts
