bottle aquired in trade with Dsho, best before Jan 2012.

Golden amber elixer with small white lacing cap. The lacing does ring the glass as this one is consumed. moderate visiblt carbonation. Nose features caramel, rye, and a quick slap of pine. Taste has spicy rye upfront with undertones of light caramel, pine, and a light does of citrus. This one trends toward the sweet side of the palate. Mouth is medium, but has an element of wateriness. Good.

Pours a clear light gold with a bubbly off-white head. Some lacing.

Smell is grassy hops, sweet pine, and fruit mixed with a light caramel, rye malt. Some tea-like, herbal qualities.

Upfront taste is bitter grassy hops. Rye, bready malt middle with a little caramel/toffee sweetness. Hoppy bitter finish--grassy and citrusy. Some caramel and pine sweetness remains through the finish.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

Very drinkable pale ale. Light, but packed full of flavor. Rye adds some uniqueness to the malt profile. Just as good as I remember it from when I first started drinking craft beer.
