On tap at the brewery. Pours red with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of herbal hops, red fruit and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and semi-dry. Good brew.

12 oz can from Tennessee. 12/12/16 canning date.
Pours with a copper body that is topped with a weak off-white head.
Dank and fruity hoppy aroma. The flavor is less dank but has obvious off-notes. It is quite mild; this lightly hopped ale is no IPA.
Near medium body and carbonation.

Too sweet and flat with a worty flavor profile. No rye character too speak of in either aroma or flavor. Not a lot to recommend this beer other than it's not challenging.

I have not logged in to review beer for quite some time, as many beat me to it and are professionally correct.

I do not know anything about this brewery and was gifted said beer. Simple explanation: Definitely getting the lawn mower ready for summer.

I drank this from a can. My first Jackalope brew. Delicious flavors of rye. Lightly sweet with very subtle hops. Just loved it. Will definitely do again. If I could find this on tap, Wow.

Clear amber with a thin light tan head. The aroma is malty sweet, a little dark fruit and a peppery. The taste is good but a little flat when compared to the aroma. It is light-bodied but a bit too much carbonation for me.
