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.

Narnad (1458) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a deep golden color with a lot of yeast chunks in it and topped by a creamy, off white head. Aroma has a light bitterness, some mild rye spicy presence, light lemon with a light grainy finish. Flavor has a very nice pure bitterness early that carries through the entire tasting. Middle has light honey flavors kick in with some lemon citrus and light spicy flavors to finish. Body is light/modest with a dryness imparted from the strong hops bitterness and high, fine carbonation. Overall a solid and enjoyable brew with lots of flavor.

Lukaduke (2118) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a three finger sticky eggshell foam that laces nicely. The aromas are citrus, earthy spice and a touch of sweet malt. The palate is direct and powerful with lots of spicy rye flavors mingling with the citrus grassy hop profile. Really big bitter spice on the back of the throat. Pretty tasty. Thanks Jstax.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy straw color, which leaves some webs of lacing. Aroma is light citrus and grassy hops, rye. Taste is part APA, part pilsener, with a rye component to it. The palate is silky smooth and very drinkable.

milewide (1490) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Slightly cloudy golden color, with solid head and body. Aroma and taste have some rye spiciness, but herbal hops and bitterness dominate.

mcrae19 (59) - - MAR 1, 2013
Draft. Served in a shaker pint. Pours a light, golden color (what else?) with a 1-inch white, foamy head. Heavy yeasty aroma and flavor with slight floral notes. Lingering, bitter finish. Drinkable, but doesn’t hold a candle to the quality of many of their other brews, such as Two-Hearted or Hopslam.

Small head that fades quickly. A lot of sediment in this one(which may be improved by decanting). Nose is of citrus and rye. Taste is hoppy bitter and very good. Citrus flavors and pine with very little maltiness.

Doghair (257) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Nice dark yellow with a lot of stuff flossing in it. Thick white foam. I get hops, rye and citrus in the aroma. I really enjoy the hoppy citrus rye flavor. Basically a good pale ale with the rye addition. Good beer.
