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.

Resin taste and toasty. Finishes very dry. All of the hop flavor is in the finish. Great golden color and head on pour. Delicious.

ryanscourt (794) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Nothing special, but is pleasant to drink. Grainy, slightly sweet and pretty bitter. More sweetness in aroma than flavor. Dry finish.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Draught @ Raging Burrito. This is a nice easy drinking rye that goes well with Mexican food.

Golden color with a white head. Very earthy, dry and toasty. Very crisp bitterness to the finish. Slightly musty. Quite a different flavor.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2013
12oz bottle from Total Wine, Durham. Faintly cloudy golden pour with a lively, fresh-looking look to it. Bright fruits and noble hops in the nose, with moderate spice. Dry and grassy but understated in these areas, gives the overall impression of being somewhere between farmhouse, pils, and APA. Pleasant and sessionable.

paintedmaple (445) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Beautiful orangey golden color with a galaxy of floaties orbiting about the glass. Nice citrus bitterness as advertised and a clean, dry finish with just the right bite. I could imagine having several of these on a warm day.

topherh (1912) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours golden with a white head. Sweet citrusy hop aroma. Flavor is light citrus, bready malt, a little spice, with a clean bitter finish.

jsquire (3553) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pale golden color out of the bottle with lots of big floaties in suspension. I didn’t realize this needed to rest... Thin white head. Nice citrus hop and raw grain nose. I am a big fan of rye in beers. Very flavorful beer with some toasted English muffin, orange peel and something earthy. Long grapefruit rind finish with some pine notes. This will be a very nice warm weather beer.
