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.

"Complex flavor" is an understatement for this beer. Way more to it than just being a standard pale ale with a bit of rye. Great balance between the malts, rye and hops with the citrus hop profile coming through little bit after the rye. Incredibly versatile as it is easy drinking enough for a hot summer day but will definitely work well through the fall and winter. My new go-to.

Location: Draft at Range, 5/24/14

Aroma: Rye malt aroma, some fruity notes, spice, and some bread
Appearance: It pours an unclear copper color with a frothy off-white head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, rye bread, spice, and some bitter hops notes as well
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a clean, lightly dry finish to it
Overall Impression: This is my first rating from Atlas Brew Works! This one is a pretty solid rye beer. I thought it worked nicely. I would happily try more beers from Atlas.

lamas (1340) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Draft at Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza, Friendship Heights, DC location on 03/28/14. Served up a hazy reddish brown with a thin beige head. The aroma featured lots of rye bread, caramel, toffee, grapefruits, and zesty citrus rinds. Went down relatively thin to medium-bodied. The taste started with quite a bit of caramel and a sizable rye breadiness. Grain and herbal qualities were abundant in the spicy middle. Plenty of grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds finished things off with a bitterness that lingered.
