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.

ThreeCats (567) - ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2014
Hazy gold with a nice foamy head. Aroma citrusy and flowery, with a hint of yeast and spice. Taste citrusy and first, spicy, firmly bitter. Despite the claim of being a "plae ale" this could have easily passed for an IPA. Nice clean and refreshing.

4oz pour at the Fare. Aroma is rye, sourdough, and lemon. Pours golden with a small coat of film. Taste is refreshing with lemon, rye, pepper, and a bready finish. A nice light drink and a pleasure to drink. Would definitely have this again.
