look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.
