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.

Nice medium golden-amber color with a pleasant floral aroma. This medium-bodied pale ale is nicely balanced and has a distinctive sharp, dry finish - almost parching. It displays the rye malt quite well.

MadIndian (2718) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle gift from Bloomy. Nice notes of rye, honey, dough and hop. The body is a little thin for my taste, but it’s a solid brew from a solid brewery. 92 beers to go until retirement or death, which ever comes first.

Braudog (6220) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Draft at Ground Control. Yes, it’s golden (with a hazy tilt). Yes, it carries a rye character (gritty, earthy). It’s without technical flaw. In the end, I found this a pleasant but not different summer sipper. (#6117, 2/12/2016)

Clear and golden in color with a thick white head. Thick, sticky lacing. Spicy rye, grassy, with lemons. Heavy bitterness. Good beer but hard to drink a lot of it.
