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.

Great rye pale ale. Enough hops to cut the rye. Very well balanced. Like what the rye brings to the pale ale. Very crisp and bright.

12oz bottle from ABC Wesley Chapel. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some sweet malt, some light rye, and some light citrus. Flavor is similar with sweet malt, some mild rye, and some light citrus. Nice almost sessionable rye cream ale-ish thing.

Hopswagger (187) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2013
P: Cloudy golden orange body with loads of specks and floaters. A whipped creamy off white head that hangs out for a good while. S: Orange peel and oil, toasted rye, lemon zest, faint peaches, pineapple and earthy notes. T/M: Spiced orange, toasted rye, sweet malt, honey, and herbal tea. Clean zesty body that leave the palate subtly dry and lingers bitter orange peel and spice. O: Refreshing and easy drinking porch beer. The hop and malt profile are clean and simple yet play well together. A seasonal ale that doesn’t break the bank.
