Single bottle copped from Total Wine and More. A solid brew. Grainy and earthy flavor which the rye imparts definitely noticeable on the tongue. Not very sessionable nor drinkable. I noticed some malts in there as well. Not my favorite beer, but a noteworthy rendition of the style nonetheless.

Bottle to pilsner glass. Clear Yellow. Big white head. Aroma is mostly grassy, some hoppyness and citrus. Taste: rye is forthright, some acetone in the finish. Feel is fairly smooth,medium carbonation. The little bite in the finish is smoothed out by a creaminess, but it almost tastes soapy at that point. Not too shabby. Rocky......WIN!!!!"

DATE: May 27, 2016... OCCASION:having negotiated the long week, I welcome the Memorial Day weekend with The Fellowship of the Ring, the Cavs' hopeful ECF-clinching win, and whatever else comes our way... APPEARANCE: dark, dense and approaching a tiger's orange-amber body... white head forms a two-finger cream that settles to coral striping and a strong surf on the surface... high-arching lace forms a distinct cloud line... effervescence is slow and steady but uneventful... AROMA: a nice bourbon and pepper draw early, after which stone fruit, melon, mango and some astringent esters... PALATE: full-bodied, intense and active on the teeth, with a vibrant, lingering aftertaste... chunky and chewy and suckable, if possible... a meal in itself... TASTE: a strong, spicy bite--pepper, allspice and warm rye bread... apple and watermelon late... a bevy of characteristics compete for the tastebuds... OVERALL: what a powerful punch of hops and rye--the rye bread malts especially develop a strong profile that supports east and west coast hop tendencies... another victory for Great Lakes Brewing...
