Trafalgar Oak Aged Rye

Citrus, vanilla and hop aroma.
Pours a rose red color with an off white head.
Light bodied which the color belies, well balanced with a spicy dry kick. Just a little too bitter at the finish for me.
I'd like to give it another half star but the site won't let me.

Trafalgar Oak Aged Rye

A very thin and short lived white head on a pretty dark copper coloured beer.
The aroma is fairly faint, some malty sweetness, a hint of tannin, and a bit of sourness. Not unpleasant at all.

The feel is quite full, round, and creamy.
Taste is another thing.
I found this to be a fairly harsh and rough edged beer, although I found that it grew on me as I sipped at it.
There are flavours of nuts and grass which are quickly buried by a harsh dry bitterness which almost burns the tongue. The aftertaste is fairly sweet and grassy with hints of grapefruit citrus but which leaves a rough sensitive patch on the middle of my tongue.
The rye taste is present but is subtle and not pronounced.
As I said, some of the tastes grow on me but I can't get past the burnt tongue feel. It almost feels like an allergic reaction so maybe I am not being fair to this brew.

Beer Quote of the day

Paul Newman's an old friend of ours out of Cleveland, Ohio. He used to sit around our house. He's the only man I've ever known to drink a case of beer all by himself. That's talent in a way.
