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.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Crozet, VA. Pours a hazy orange color with floating particles. Large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy rye, herbal notes, pale malts, a bit of earth. The taste is rye, citrus, herbal and floral notes, mild toasted malt and caramel, overall reminiscent of Lemonheads candy. Medium bodied, well balanced. I quite like this.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small head that lingers a bit. Aromas are citrus, musty wet leaves, rye bread, earthiness. Taste is really good. Lots spicy rye and fresh musty hops. Moderate bitterness. Big lemon citrus finish. I will for sure enjoy a few of these this spring.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Draft at the Institute. Pours a cloudy gold with small off-white head and beautiful ring lacing. Note of citrus, lemon, honey and rye. Slightly bitter finish. Decent but tough to drink after a Hopslam.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2013
I tend to love rye beer and most offerings from bells but this one fell short for me. A little bland and generic.

tmoreau (3410) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co. showing a lightly hazed, orangy gold color, fluffly, white head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was a light but pleasant nose of orangy citrus and piney resin. The flavor was similar, with moderate, lingering, earthy hop bitterness combined with some rye spice, decent hop to malt balance, a little less than medium body, but with a crisp, dry & bitter finish.

shrubber85 (9927) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Orange, rye malt, and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange, rye malt and moderately bitter pine/orange peel flavor. Very hoppy.

SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 10, 2013
bottle. light hazy to this gold colored beer with a big, whipped, white head. grassy and lemony hop aroma. nice beer man. medium carbonated palate with a medium-full bodied beer. grassy hops provide a clean, dryish finish. high quaffage. the palate and carbonation level are standout features. refreshing summer beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Love the appearance on this one, cloudy light yellow with a super frothy sticky white head. Aroma of wet grains, bitter flowers, and some bright citrus. Flavor follows, but that bitterness upfront is a bit of a kick, and follows to more vitamin C like bitterness in the finish, nice floral and citrus notes, rye plays well here. Body is fluffy and light, easy drinking.

BOLTZ7555 (3003) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 9, 2013
24 karat pour with a sizzling ivory head that leaves nothing but a wispy white aftermath. Spicy rye, biscuit, honey, black pepper, lemongrass and grapefruit pith. Flavor lingers on the palate. Not bad.
