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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium plus sized dense white head with thick lacing. The aroma has yeast, spicy rye notes, light fruit, grass with an earthiness throughout. The flavor has toasted malts, mild spicy rye, grass, with an earthy finish. Nothing over the top, pretty decent overall.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Drank in tulip glass poured from 12oz bottle. Aroma- mix between citrus, hops, and rose petals. Glorious. Appearance- beautiful golden orange color. Taste- ahhhh. Heavenly. So smooth yet so much flavor. Very very drinkable. Citrus with a bit of hops. Palate- similiar to taste but the hops come out more here. Overall- brilliant. My favorite spring/summer weather beer ever. I could drink these all day. May not be the biggest or boldest beer ive had but it still remains among my favorites of all time

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is dominated by an herbal and citrus, there is a slight maltiness in the background. Upfront on my palate was hit with the rye, spicy, bready malts, the flavor finishes with a delicate floral note. A very delicate beer. I enjoyed this.

Alright, I’ll say this... I’m favoring rye in my whiskeys and beers - my bias being presented, this is a fine amber-hued brew with a lasting, finely bubbled head and a delightful finish. Some more, please!

12 oz bottle pours a cloudy but bright orange color with lots of floating yeast, a small white head, and attractive lacing. Aroma is full of orange peel, spices, rye, and some earthy grass. Taste is moderately sweet alternating with slightly bitter. Body is medium with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. This reminds me of an IPA with rye. It’s easily drinkable and refreshing, but not one of the great ones from Bells.

Pours bright yellowish orange with a white one finger head. Lotd of sediment in here, so pour foul on my part I guess. Aroma is orange citrus, spicy rye, and a bit if wheaty yeast funk. Light orange rind flavor finishes with some hint of rye spice. Seems very much a summer ale. Not a bad beer, and a neat twist on the rye beer style. Almost a combo of Oberon and Ruthless Rye.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Bottle and draft. Clear golden body. Frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of raw grain, rye, sulfur, vegetable. Hint of bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Bitterness lingers into the finish. Lots of raw grain and raw hop taste. Updated: Draft version is cleaner, crisper.
