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.

Bottle: Orange pour with two fingers of fluffy beige head, some swirling particles. Nose is lightly citrus, a little malt, and florals. Flavor profile is hoppier than expected (florals) and the citrus blends well with the rye. Refreshing.

On tap at Busters on 28th, pale golden color, thin white head. Aromas of earthiness and a bit of sweet wheat. Taste is just a rather bland wheat flavor, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle through trade with JStax poured into a shaker. Pours translucent deep golden with a lot of suspended yeast and small white head. Medium small bubble lacing, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and nice citrus aroma. Taste is bitter citrus, some earth, and resinous hop finish. Not for me.

unclemattie (4036) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Golden orange color. Aroma of citrus blossoms, hops, and spicy grains. Tastes like an American Pale Ale. Nice caramel grains, citrusy hops, hint of rye tingle on the tongue. Finishes with a sharp bitterness. A very nice APA. (3671)

fattybladdy (452) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2013
On draft @ Bells. Pours a light orange with white head. Aroma is citrus hops. The rye really stands out in this one, mixed in with some citrus and bitterness. A pretty easy drinking brew.

jhliesen (692) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle--cloudy gold color with a medium head that dissipates into lacing on the side of the glass. Citrus, flowers and hops hit the nose as soon as the pour is finished. Some bitterness in the beginning from the hops, then some sweetness takes over. Medium bitter finish with a hop aftertaste. Produce place.
