Throws down with the red and brown, 1/4" off white head that isn't here for a long time, its here, for a mildly good time. Aroma didn't do anything to make you think 'rye'.

Taste was far from revolutionary, came off more like the status quo for SA, that is, this is Boston Lager with an ale yeast an a smidge of rye. Mild hopping, a little bit of caramel, a smooth drinking affair.

Aroma wasn’t very strong but the rye dominated in the flavor. More a of rye-based ale than a pale ale, the rye doesn’t make it too spicy and a has a good aftertaste to it.

This was the first drain pour I ever had in my life. It was horrible. It was super bready, pretty thick, high carbonation, and tasted as if someone took the whole spice cabinet and stuffed it into a beer bottle. This was horrendous.

A: Pours an opaque copper color, with a white head.

S: Spicy rye, bready malt, a subdued floral and piney hop character in the nose.

T: More spicy rye, some wheat, some bready malt, hop flavor is still piney, floral and subdued.

M: Medium bodied, a bit harsh.

O: Recommended if you want a rye beer that doesn't have a strong hop character to it. This beer really focuses on the rye and other malts. That said, I enjoyed it.
