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.

-can to spiegelau glass. canned 11.17.15. consumed 02.08.16.

A: Cardinal red with orange-ish highlights show a good clarity with a steady pace of effervesce within. Cream, peanut shell toned head is 0.5 inches high and stays moderately. Thin, whispy eyelash lacing.

S: Spicy pine, dark caramel-raisin malt with some apple skin of moderate strength and short stay.

T: Sweet caramel and apple malt. A bit of spicy pine, fresh cypress and a touch of lemon hops. Spicy pine-malt finish.

M: crisp, nice maltiness, sticky caramel.

O: A decent spiciness, caramel malting and average drinker. 3.25 overall says it best. thanks to paul.
