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.

Good lace. Amber color and clear.

Some toastiness to the flavor. Low hop flavor. Rich body. I didn't note any hop presence.

-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.

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.
