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.

Hophaze (192) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden with medium head and average lacing. Light bodied, smooth taste...rye, a little bitterness, but was surprised to see this is classified as an American Pale Ale. Good beer though. Nice segue from macro to craft (in my opinion) ----Hophaze out

NikkTwist (2410) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Draft at the Khyber. Dark clear gold pour with some off-white foam and lace. Rye and hop flavors but ridiculously smooth. Fairly full flavored. A nice big dark blonde.

DerWeg (1576) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Complex fairly full malt taste sided with some interesting hops very balanced. Good as brews like Hop Rod, mellower. Worth a repeat.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Smells of sweet hops and light lemon. Dark orange color with white thin head. Floral notes from the hops. Good bitter grapefruit pith only. Slightly tinny but light and kind of refreshing.

coldbrewky (1642) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2014
On tap at the dutch. Consumed with lunch of chilli and rice. Dealing with the remnants of a brutal cold equates to no ability to discern any nose whatsoever. Rye comes thu balanced with sturdy hops. A tang of grapefruit on the side.

williamstome (1618) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Golden brown pour, medium white head. Light toasty aroma, hoppy toasty rye flavor. Bitter finish, light bodied. Okay, not great.

Block (2075) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2014
This beer was light with some crisp pale malt, orange, wheat, and lemon flavors and aromas. The rye gives it a smoother texture and little more character.

Bransm (9) - Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2014 does not count
Not for me. Light golden color with little to no head. Bitter going down. Bitter afterwards. Maybe I got a bad brew? Not sure I'll be trying this again anytime soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Herbal hop aroma with some light rye malt underneath. Peppery bitter hops at the start with a dry rye malt middle and a rather dry finish. Dry rye bread aftertaste.
