This is one that FX Matt should bring back. Wonderfully smooth and hint of spices throughout. Flavorful beer. Pairs perfectly with red meats.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-clear, golden color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with strong notes of piney hops, slightly toasted malt, giving off notes of slightly toasted rye bread, caraway seeds, and some caramel and brown sugar.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, only reversed. Strong notes of toasted malt up front and caraway seeds, like freshly baked rye bread, followed by some black pepper, caramel-like sweetness, finished by some pretty strong, but not out-of-balanced hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty decent beer. Not bad, but not great either. Pretty enjoyable as your drinking it, but totally forgettable once it’s drunk. Worth a try, but not really worth going back too. I wouldn’t pass it up if offered, but I’m not seeking it out either.
