Had this on tap at butcher and the boar... this is hands down the best rye ale ive had in YEARS!!! Also of of the best brown ales ive had in a while. Wow i really REALLY HOPE these guys CAN this... drove by the brewery earlier tonight and opted out for Tatrersall, which was... dissapointing to say the least.
This beer is so delicious and BALANCED.
Look: deep brownish crimson with a thick sticky khaki head.
Taste: subtley sweet and malty, faintly spicey and bready, and a hint of earthyness. Literally PERFECT.
Mouthfeel: Again perfectly balanced smooth/creamy full bodied but not too filling low carbonation.
I coukd not have orded a better beer

very cool that these guys were involved in the minnesota grown and malted rye. the malt profile of this beer is decidedly unique, and this hands on, local grain approach i reckon is the way of the future, especially for these smaller breweries who need a little less of it to do something special. this is a really awesome rye based brown ale, i think without question my favorite beer i have had from these guys so far. from the tap its a classic chestnut brown color with a light red glow underneath, frothy headed, and nearly perfectly clear. the grain base is awesome in the nose and taste, its rye for sure, but its different, not just the classic pale rye malt spice, instead its more of an earthy nutty complexion, toasted and baked, like seeded multigrain bread with the little bits of pumpkin seed and such, lots going on with it, complex for one ingredient here, and i think its perfectly suited to a brown ale of this nature. less of the classic rye spice, slightly sweeter for a moment, earthy for sure, and also awesome with the chocolate note from the other grains. its so smooth, and such a long flavor trajectory too, rising grain nuance and lightly bitter hops for balance. this is farm beer to me without the saison type yeast, just extremely agricultural, well crafted, and sort of timeless. an instant winner for me, dying for my next glass of this already. a real highlight from my recent trip to minnesota that included some legendary beers!
