COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Cafť. 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.

tap at 800 degrees in Feb. - Pours hazy yellow-gold with a one finger white head. It has an aroma of citrus, grain, and pale malt. The rye is very apparent in the flavor. It has an earthy character with moderate bitterness and a touch of citrus. Medium bodied, this well balanced beer finishes with some lingering bitterness.

Love me some rye beer but this just wasnt overwhelming. Most like a golden ale with not much going for it. A little disappointing.

Bottle. Rye and grapefruit aroma. Hazy golden body with thin lasting head. Flavor begins with hops and resin, followed by citrus and rye. Grapefruit finish with a long bitter aftertaste. A nice dry, and flavorful pale ale.
