On Cask at Trappeze Pub, Athens Ga. Drank next to regular rye for comparison.

Poured very similar to the Rye, but the head was the big difference. Clouded medium gold with a small white cap of firmly placed froth. Fades out quickly to a thin skim and collar. Lace is big and blotchy stringed. Head was more like Styrofoam and much thinner then the normal rye.

Aroma of is of a citric lime and orange combo, gracing some peach and tangerine. Pungently sweetened, crisp, and a mild rye, cracked wheat undertow. Clean, tamely citric with slight smears of tangerine and peach. Fluffy wheat-like texture and smooth on the down side with a partial rye quality making a nice breadish tone. Hops have a light leafy addition to its character and rounds out into the finish with a spicy lime mint tea heat and bitterness. Light to medium body with a quick texture of hop leafiness and mild on the tongue with a fun fluffiness. A bit empty at first but there's a small surge near the finish of citric bitterness helping to carry it through, but it tends to favor more of a light fluffed, bread-like malt for the overall. Thankfully, and modestly, the hops do add a nice twist to the body and flavor. Much smoother then the rye, with a hint of oak.
