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.

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.

Had at a 603 tasting. Appears to be a light golden, almost orange color. Head was white and thin. Smell is strongly rye and hops with slight hints of earth tones. Taste is pretty average, strong rye, average hopiness with grassy and earthy tastes. Somewhat bitter for the style. Nothing about this beer is exceptional, just a average brew, not real weaknesses or strengths.
