This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice somewhat light transparent to somewhat hazy pale brown color leading to light tinges of orange coloring along the sides of the glass. There was a decent light lacing sliding right on into the beer. The smell had a faded sort of rye note to it along with a light floral yet somewhat spiciness. The taste was a combination of the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed fairly good for the style and for me as it was harsh but not overly done. Overall, in my opinion, this was a good Rye Beer I’d have again.

Can poured into pint glass; deep Amber color, nice head that falls away. Malts and hops are nice. Easy on the palate, light hops, well balanced. Light bodied - an enjoyable beer.
