look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: golden amber, more on gold side, slightly off white head, great clarity

Aroma: caramel and rye spicing, richer flavor than most pale ales, slight bitter nose, smells like caramel drizzled rye bread

Taste: caramel and toasted bread malt flavor with some slight spicy/peppery characteristics from the rye, very easy drinking, pleasingly bitter finish but not on same IBU level as IPAs, much more balanced, significant malt flavor with little hop flavor

Mouthfeel: medium-low carbonation, slight tingle on swallow, medium bodied, rich an toasty and warming in the mouth

Overall Impression: An easy drinking and balanced beer that gets most of its flavor from caramel malt character and a slight spiciness from rye malt additions. A moderately biter finish but little discernible hop flavor or aroma, this Rye Pale Ale is a good one for those who aren't hopheads but want to try a rye ale.
