Bready, Vegetal, Grainy, Dull

From the can: Light, bright, copper. Creamy head with legs. Light rye, bready, and floral in the nose with a strong vegetal note. Smooth, firm, and slick with a prickly carbonation. Mildly sweet upfront. Grainy with a soft, bready, rye edge. Dry, chalky finish. A bit dull overall. Expected more rye and hop presence.

ABV: 5.2% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

The spice/black pepper comes through. It is crisp with good carbonation. Low abv makes for good drinkability. One that I buy often. Great!

Approaching amber color, no head retention, but some lacing. Not much I can even smell here. Some bitterness but otherwise a general lack of flavor. Some rye is detectable. Feels like a session beer with lower carbonation.
