If you’re in the mood for a roasty, rustic ale, Banner American Rye will not disappoint. This interpretation is dark mahogany in color and has a complex, soft malt character throughout. Earthy, piney American hops finish it off perfectly to compliment the spicy Rye notes.

Pours a dark brown with orange highlights. Creamy tan head. Light citrus hops in the nose, with a good bit of nutty toffee malt. FIrst impression is that this is quite watery. A pretty big nose had me expecting much more depth in the flavor and mouthfeel, but its not there. What I do get is just a balanced brown ale. Nutty raisins with a light citrus hop finish. Bitterness maintains balance. Nothing special, nothing offensive. Just a drinkable middle of the road beer.
