Tasting Notes

"Warm amber in color with a very little rye presence on the nose. Orange zest, caramel, and a clean rye taste are evident on the palate. A slight astringency to the mouthfeel with a quick finish. Citrus is present in the aftertaste, as is caramel. A very light rye, but not at all unpleasant."
