I wish I was any good at describing beers, but this is a favorite, and will be a staple at my house! It was my first time using rye in a brew, and I am very pleased with the results. The aroma is very inviting, and when you get into it, it's got a great spicy flavor that melds really well with the bitterness from the hops. Malty, somewhat caramel tones are noticeable.
