COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with three varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, Rowdy offers a complex flavor and aroma that is both aggressive and fun. The addition of malted rye to the grain bill lends a peppery and distinct character to the beer which complements the bitterness and floral notes of brewhouse hop additions. Finally, this copper-hued ale receives a liberal addition of dry hops in the fermenting vessel, imparting citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.

BierMeHoos (533) - Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce can. Appearance: was dark amber or reddish, head was pretty solid and lasted a while. Aroma: little on the lighter side as far as rye maybe, hops, green and floral mostly. Taste: Caramel and brown sugar, with the rye spice, fairly bitter, tobacco, grass, earth. Palate: it’s a fairly clean and dry beer. Overall: Overall a rye beer I can kind of easily enjoy and no think over too much.

deyholla (9750) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2016
Can at Reagan International Airport. Pours a near clear deep brown with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of rye with light roasted malts and a bit of bitter pine coming through. Flavor is full of rye with some sweet dark grains, a hint of pine and some bread underlying.

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2016
12 oz can from a friend The ale poured a clear dark amber with a frothy off white head and lacing. The head had good retention. The aroma of hay mixed with some spices. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The flavor of earthy hops provides a muted bitterness. Nice ale with a clean finish with the rye providing some spiciness at the end.

The rye spiciness comes through, but melds into what seems like a touch of roasted malt to give an overall impression of ashtray. Not a bad beer overall, just put off by this one note.

3fourths (8984) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2016
The malt is expressed as dark rye bread, seed bread, caramel. Western hops give it a fruit cocktail / maraschino cherry and orange notes along with faint resin and some noble-like pepperiness and nuttiness. Medium bodied, medium to light sweetness with relatively strong bitterness, finishing long and savory and a little juicy. Pretty nice rendition here, ample malt body to support the strong bitterness, and as it warms it gets more aromatic and interesting, developing layers of spiced / nutty hops and peppery phenols.

Many thanks to travlr for this can! Nice earthy dark malts with a nice intense hop-bitterness and -floralness, that is round and great. Dry roasted malty body with a nice hoppy finish. Typical rye-earthynes, round and great!
