    Mild nose, citrus hop notes, pepper, and bread. Surprisingly light in color, a medium gold with a hint of orange, very nice frothy head. Very nice effervescence continues long after the pour. Nice frothy lace. Mouth is light and slick, almost watery, highly carbonated. Very unusual flavor profile. Lots of orange citrus upfront, a slight oily tartness towards the end, fair amount of bread in the middle. Alcohol is present and warming. Overall interesting and a bit thin.

    Tasted this on a women beer enthusiasts' night out a few months ago-- just now catching up on recording some older reviews. My later venture into a beer with a Rastafarian theme (reviewed earlier on BP) was a disaster. This one was not. (Both are somewhat ironic given that alcohol is not part of an ital diet.) This was a rich golden color with a ring of white. It had an orangey aroma: syrupy with orange peel oil. Smooth and warm flavor, the bitter oil has a strong sweet backbone. Smooth and creamy feel, very enjoyable.

    Aroma is not strong, but definitely has notes of rye and hops and a fruity, slightly yeasty underpinning. Pours a clear, bubbly copper with a thick, fluffy, rather persistent pale wheat head. Rye dominates the flavor, which has fruity, malty and hoppy hints. Smooth texture has good body and fizz. An interesting, if not superb, beer - give it a try.

    From #KnoxBeerCrew tasting. Amber pour, short creamy head, ample lacing. Malty, ryed and caramel aroma, with a sweetness in the nose, offset duly by an earthy and slightly floral hops presence. Taste mimics the aroma with a rye and malty sweetness. Nice little linger.

    Nice alcohol level with this beer,good carbonation and top foam.Very light orange color,taste is pretty average.Aroma is not that good.Can't detect any rye,more light caramel -but more balanced than most reviews say.I am only 4 oz into this one, when i finish the other 20 maybe i will be more impressed.So far i want to say this is over priced.

    Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Amber colour with mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruity hops as well as some ryebread. Flavour is ryebread, grains, fruits, mild herbal notes as well as some sweetish malts. Not that exciting.

    Tihs poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is malty with some caramel and rye showing through. The flavor contains a hint of citrus with some caramel and rye showing up. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Overall not a bad one.

    I served this one tonight with tuna tehini/pita bread. The match was perfect. For this ale was a beautifully bright amber colored beer. A big creamy textured orange tinged head rises above. Some hang time, settling eventually into a light soapy film and big soapy ringlet. The nose is roasted caramel and pine hops. The tasting matches with some peppery spiciness thrown in, but it is so well balanced. Medium bodied, well carbonated. I really liked this one.

    I'll admit it...I bought this because of the label. Call me a sucker! After drinking this, I am reminded why I am not really into rye beer. I like sweet, but maybe a little too sweet here. Balance could use more hop to it. Not that bad of a brew, just not worth the price. One of those "It is what it is" beers.

    Jah Rastafarye. Jah holy of the most holy. I red rye colour, jah big white head. rasta roasted. What does rasta mean? Righteousness! Rastaman vibrations gonna cover the earth, like the water cover the sea. In him and I and I in him. In the beginning was the word. And the word was with God and the word was God. Revelation 22:2 "The river of life proceeded to flow from the throne of God, and on either side of the bank there was the tree of life, and the leaf from that tree is for the healing of the nations." Herb. Grassy underneath. Genesis 1:29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb-bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, to you it shall be for meat." Open the gates of Zion and let and I and I come in.
