I would revisit this ale more often if not for the hefty price tag, given its " slightly above okayness." If the price point dropped, it might be more of a staple in my household. I think I paid nearly $9.00 for 24 oz. bottle. Living in New Hampshire, however, I will do my best to support this local brew, just not with any great frequency.

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.

From the 650 ml bottle dated 8/24/13. Sampled on May 31, 2014. I can buy this fresher than that but I picked it up off a clearance rack.

The pour is a murky looking copper color with a modest off-white head that leaves lacing along the way.

The aroma is less grainy and more malty but that could well be due to the age of this bottle. Yeasty even. Sweet caramel malts.

The body is actually rather nice in the medium range.

The taste is sweet and malty rather that rye-like and grainy. Again, the bottle is 10 months old and this is a style hat should be consumed fresh. It had some nice elements to it but next time I will try a fresher bottle.
