This is my first time using rye malt and I have to say I'm really impressed with the results. This beer has a nice full mouth-feel but a very clean finish. The malt flavour is complemented well by the spiciness of the rye. It has a great malt aroma as well as a deep coppery colour (the picture below is terrible).
