A - Hazy pale body with dense white foam. Really nice retention and lots of lacing.

S - Lots of doughy malts.

T - Doughy malt upfront followed by slight citrus, but more strongly, pine and floral hops. Hops linger in the aftertase.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and washes away clean, not sticky.

O - This was great. I could definitely make this a routine beer. Very drinkable. And I'm happy to support a local brewery.

S: A little rye smell, maybe nutty, mild tart/hop.
T: Sweet, bit of a rye spice (mild), mild bitter end. Aftertaste that comes up is a general sweet rye.
F: A decent fizz, almost a 4.5, not bad. Medium heavy, maybe light going down, feels a bit heavier in the stomach though. Makes me want to burp.

Overall: Good beer, light taste in my opinion. Easy drinker.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a slightly hazy dull golden color with a decent sized dirty white head that shows moderate retention and lacing. Smells of sweet bread and light stone fruit with a hint of candy sugar, and a touch of spicy tartness. The flavor is lightly sweet with a nice light fruity sweetness that is offset with some spicy tartness and a hint of yeastiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart mouthfeel. I took this straight out of the fridge and poured it on this 85 degree humid day and it went down very quickly. Nice light easily approachable ale.

Poured from a bomber, bottle date 7-14-13, and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, golden-copper coloring with a steady, solid flow of carbonation and a frothy, light, bright white head that starts a solid inch and slowly settles into a thin surface coat. Aromas of toasted grains, with a bitterness and slightly dusty/musty character found in some Ryes. Slightly sweet and bready backbone in the nose, also. The flavors are tangy and roasty on the forward tongue, providing a unique dynamic. Grain character wins out, with a slightly sweet highlight of butter and caramel dancing throughout the palate. Subtle citrus highlights are there, as well, helping to bring a sweet, slightly fruity build to the end of the palate. The body is smooth, mid-range, and full. Everything is kept light by the carbonation, providing an effervescence to the tangy, slightly tropical, grainy aftertaste. The finish is frothy, with a tangy linger. Tasty beer, and very easy to drink.

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.
