Pours deep amber, hazy with a very mild white foam head. Aroma is very subtle, some malts and some american hops. Taste is also subtle, not a very tasty beer but it´s ok. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall a drinkable beer but I would´t buy it again,

Ordered a case for my liquor store, top of the case said best by May 2015 so sent it back but took a bottle. It's five months ood. 22oz poured into a pint glass. Gold color with small head. No retention. Smells and tastes like rye. Ok beer. Cheers!

Aroma is yeast, rye and light citrus. The flavor is rye/rye bread, mild/medium sweetness/almost sugary, citrus and a tangy/mildly bitter finish.

No bottling date that I could find.

A: Pours an orangeish-red with a very tall, frothy tan head. Great head retention with a huge island of foam sticking around. Moderate, thin lacing.

S: Welp, certainly rye. Spicy, grainy rye. Not much else, a little bread?

T: Very floral up front. SUPER floral in fact. Rye in the middle adds a little spice. Some sweet bread finishes it up. Lingering floral hops in the aftertaste, like drinking rose water.

M: Medium bodied, lightly spicy.

O: I'm a fan of rye ales but this is more of a flower ale than anything. Super floral and just a little rye. Alas.
