A nice sweet citrus aroma with a little bit of malt. Not as potent as I was expecting, but a nice mild maltiness to it, and just the right amount of sweetness.

Sampling right now on 4/10/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 'CHEERS-BOSTON" handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a deep amber in color with a good 2 finger foamy off-white head that settles down to a thin layer in about 20 mins. Lots of sticky lacing is seen when sipped, a good amount actually. The aroma is of hops for the most part along with some spice. Lots going on with the taste as there is a hint of burnt brown sugar in the mix along with the rye grain also. A slight bitter finish BUT doesn't last at all past the tongue. Never had a rye beer before I don't believe. It was decent though. Medium-bodied with good carbonation.
