COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This "Lil" Gye is the result of many nights planning the brewers meetings, and just good conversations. The lower ABV allows more cognitive mind, but the flavor is still there. Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand, choice caramel malts, and rye malt meld together to form a profile that aint so, well, lil!

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice fruity biscuit malt with grassy floral hops with light citrus pulp and funky notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice refreshing session ipa with light biscuit malt, grassy floral hops and grapeskin notes, light citrus pulp, nice and refreshing for summer weather. On tap at brewery.

Draft. Bright copper hue with haze and a dense, frothy tan head. Great aroma -- toasty rye, peanut skins, biscuits, earthy/floral hops. The flavor leads with this blend as well, but floral hop bitterness takes hold mid-palate and carries the tongue into the exceedingly gentle finish. Combined with the down-soft, light body, the brew escapes the palate like evaporating water. Crazy-drinkable beer.

bytemesis (4760) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Tap. Pours clear orange Amber, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, hints of pine, melon. Flavor is dry, light bitter, some rye bite, melons and tropical fruits, hint of tea. Lightish body, lots of rye on the finish.

BiiruBierBeer (651) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Smell is tropical fruit. Pineapple and banana maybe. Taste is light to moderate hops, a bit of malt, and light bread. Well made, but Iím not a fan of hop forward beers. Medium carbonation with some foam.

umich03jm (2855) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Tap at the source. Clear reddish amber pour with a small head that fades to a ring and leaves great lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of rye bread, tropical fruit, wood, and light caramel. Tastes like juicy oranges, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Very nice caramel malt and rye too. Canít believe this is only 3.7%.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear bright copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like nutty roasted malt, woody, dry straw, earthy. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, nutty malt, grapefruit, toast.

Draft at brewery. Pours clear amber/light copper with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, floral and spicy hops, light caramel, and light grapefruit. Flavor is hop bitterness forward with notes of grapefruit and citrus, lightly toasted malt profile, and some rye spice in the finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

Ernesto987 (4755) - Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 draft at brewery, this was a rock star. Great representation of the nelson hop with the light rye spiciness was a perfectly balanced nuance. The thinness and one-dimensionality that unfortunately comes with the session ipas was not here, feat that only a few breweries have mastered. Well done! The drinkability on this one is extremely high, a great beer for the area. I really like this one, it may be my favorite beer brewed in AZ so far.

Itís all about drink-ability. This beer tastes good and went down smooth while drinking outside, enjoyed all 12-16 ounces I was poured. Now normally I pair with food, because letís be real if there was a ratetreats.com I would be the #1. Didnít eat here but the wings are good!
