COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Café. The combination of sharp citrus & resinous flavors from the hops with the earthy, rustic overtones of the rye malt contribution yield an interesting take on the American Pale Ale.

One of bells less inspiring offerings. Nice citrus and hop taste but nothing that makes iy stick out either.

Pours a dark golden color with a small white head, smells of hops citrus and earthy. Taste has a bit of malty sweetness followed by typical APA flavor, citrus and earthy. Nothing too special on this beer

Huhzubendah (2499) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy golden body with a soft, white head. The aroma brings grain, mild hops, earth, citrus. The flavor is ok. A bit too conservative for me. A hint of hops, mild bitterness, finishing dry. Crackers, grain, earth. Middle of the road. Not one of the better offerings from Bell’s.

fiercepanda (532) - Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2014
A dark golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is lemons and biscuits. The flavor is light rye giving way to a resiny finish.

thegreenrooster (3201) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is plenty of the rye, nice and spicy. Flavor is more spicy rye. No real hop presence but this beer is all about the rye. Not very complex but definitely a showcase of the malt used.

jw0406 (761) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2014
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of grapefruit, spice, floral. Light bodied, very nice rye beer

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours cloudy golden with a large white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is mostly floral hops, slightly spicy rye notes. Taste is a balance of spicy rye and floral/herbal hops, quick finish. Not bad, but wouldn’t buy it again.

12oz bottle 1/11/14 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in Shaker-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a nice white head. Aroma of rye, malt, and hops. Taste of hops, rye, and malt. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down quite easy.

bluemooner (607) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a dark golden with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy with biscuit notes. Flavor is bready with hints of grain, citrus and grassy hops, and peppery notes. Medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Wonderful beer. Rye is strong with this one. Apricot nose. Finish leaves a bit to be desired, but awesome session brew.
