a nice clean copper/orange in color with a finger of head which quickly dissipated. smells of lager yeast, bready, slight toasted notes and orange zest. ok, what this lacks in appearance and smell, the flavor makes up for it.. a deliciously refreshing beer, lots of bready/biscuity notes, definitely on the yeasty side, with a touch of toasted rye.. this is a delicious beer - no doubt about it. light body with a medium amount of carbonation.. very thin, but that's what makes it refreshing. this beer goes down nice and easy but is so damn tasty you want to savor every moment of it.

give it a shot, at $10 a 6pk, it makes a great session beer, and perfect for hot summer days like today.

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark yellow in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a light dusting of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts and spicy rye are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell except that the flavors are a little more prominent. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and can be considered sessionable given its low alcohol content. Being a lager, it stands out a little compared to other rye beers.

Golden-colored with basically no head to speak of. Little to no carbonation, it took a vigorous swirl of the glass to revive the head. Slight spice in the aroma but not much going on. Despite all this, the flavor wasn't terrible. Lack of carbonation ruins the mouthfeel though.

As soon as I got home after purchasing this beer, I noticed that the bottles were filled up way too high. Almost no room for air in the neck of the bottles. Not sure how much of an effect that had on the carbonation, but definitely not acceptable. Especially at the price point they are charging for six packs.

I don't mean to slam a local beer (or any beer for that matter) but the carbonation issue needs to be fixed. Will re-review when it gets sorted out.
