COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rockville Rye Ale is a unique creation developed by our brewers which utilizes 15 % rye malt, flaked rye and flaked oats. The combination of these grains with the barley malt offers a slightly heavier malt complexity than normally found in a light copper ale. The grainy rye flavors emerge from the interesting sweetness and are balanced nicely against a spicy hop finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Draft at the Gettysburg location, July 2006. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of berries. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of berries, but also light notes of bread and fruit (primarily oranges), leading to a dry end. All in all it is just too light for my taste.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
On tap at Gettysburg location, July 2006. Attractive, gingery amber colour. Like several of the Appalachian brews, I found this one a bit on the sweet side for my taste. Smooth and a touch bready. The idea of a rye beer is interesting but Iím not entirely sure what flavour elements it introduces. But I kept getting tastes of a soft drink called Vimto that we have in the UK (donít know whether it gets to the US). Somehow, whilst an interesting concept, I felt this beer lacked attack and the overall effect was a tad bland.

Draft. Deep coppery pour with aroma of fruit, heavy malt, red grapes. Tastes fruity, grapey, with caramel malt notes.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a clear light gold under a small fizzy white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Not much aroma, some bready rye, a little bit of hops, and some sweetness. Flavor has a nice earthy rye taste up front, with a nice balanced bitter finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light with fizzy active carbonation. Light and airy on the palate. This was a little light on the rye for my tastes personally, though as it warmed up from the fridgid temperature it was served at, the flavor did open up a little.

morehops (39) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Had this on tap at ABCís Gettysburg brew pub. Has a malty taste to it that sticks around for a while as the slight hop taste fads away. But the hops makes it drinkable for me

Much better than their Kipona. hazy golden pour with a decent head, white. Hoppy aroma with little rye. Great on a warm day.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Poured a cloudy golden color with a small foamy white head. Very nice aroma of mild hops and rye. The flavor was a good bit of bitter rye, without being too much, and a nice touch of piney and grassy hops. A very enjoyable brew.
