3.22/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was a tad of light foamy lacing that trickled for the most part. The smell had some light Rye malt with just a tad of bitter citrus hoppiness in and out of a slight bearing of the flavors. The taste was sweet and bitter, not at the same time but still showing a nice sweet to bitter and yet ultimately still having a slight Rye flavoring here and there all around. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat smooth and subdued. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Rye beer worthy of having again.

12 oz bottle. No date found.

Pours clear copper in color with a nice head that has very good duration, Nice sheets of lacing are left on the glass.

M: smooth and full, with excellent, lively carbonation.

Aroma: sweet malts, including caramel, with plenty of multi-grain bread and a little spiciness from the rye.

T: could be adequately described as a malty American PA with an additional spicy rye component.

O: A malty and spicy PA. Well crafted and easy to drink.

A very good offering from ST. Here goes:

A: Dark but clear amber-brown. A very good head that lingers and leaves lacing as well. Interestingly, I was able to guess the abv merely from drinking it (the bartender was quite shocked), if that tells you anything.

S: Very sweet and piney. Lots of caramel malt and rye complemented by piney hops and some grapefruit. Very honey-ish.

T: Piney hops with caramel and honey. Follows the nose quite well. Also a substantial grapefruit aftertaste.

F: Good.

O: A solid beer. Predominate rye and caramel malt with a large helping of piney/grapefruity hops.

Good rye, but a little unbalanced against the alcohol flavor though I understand its a double
