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.

smroush (213) - Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Aromas of rustic grain and spruce hops. The rye rusticness is lighter than in most other rye beers I’ve had. Color is a medium amber, with a clear body and an average sized off-white head. Sweetness is pretty light; bitterness is moderate to heavy. Body is medium; carbonation is average to slightly lively; Fairly long rustic rye finish. There is a pretty crisp clean texture that I like; the rye and hops add some interest. Overall a pretty good beer.
