Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a hazy golden color with a fairly large foamy off-white head. Mild stringy lace. The aroma had some biscuit/toasty malt, then rye plus some citrusy bitter hops. The flavor blends the sweetness of the biscuits/toastiness to the rye and citrusy hops. Lingering citrusy to semi-spicy rye sort of aftertaste. Quick semi-spicy sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Good ABV. Overall, in my opinion, I thought this was a pretty good rye beer well worthy of having again.

This one's 6 months old, unfortunately.

Aroma nutty, toasted caramel malt dominant, with rye spiciness.

Flavor is similar, lightly caramelly sweet, with a moderately bitter, spicy rye finish.

Solid but not great. Worthy of a try but keep your expectations in check.

Really wanted to like this, especially living in New Hampshire.

Dead hops, thin feel, despite a great color. Pour was flat and aroma lacking.

Hoping other offerings from this brewery deliver.
