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.

bottle. poured nice with nice frothy white head with good retention and stuck around for a while. Some decent lacing. smells of bread, spice(pepper), hay, grass, and some hops. i did not get a lot of citrus but was there. Pours golden straw with slight haze. Taste of decent hop bitterness with spiciness from the rye, a touch of resin. Did get nice citrus hop flavor as well. Beer was light and refreshing with lively carbonation with a medium length finish that was bright.

On tap at champs. Hazy gold with thin white head with good retention. Aroma is hay and straw. Flavor is the same plus a little peppery spiciness. Creamy mouthfeel. Strange beer: Tastes like a hoppier spicier Oberon.

12 ounce bottle, Batch 11695, packaged on 1/14/2013. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch and a half white head. The head stays around a long time, and there’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready/grainy malt, rye, citrusy hops, and some grassy hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some light peppery spice. There’s a nice bittersweet finish in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit creamy, but also refreshing with good carbonation. Would be a great beer on a hot day, but it’s still good on a 25 degree day, too. I like this brew, I’d buy it again. $9.99 a 6-pack.

Bottle. The aroma has a strong yeast smell to it. The taste is rather light. Would be a good summertime beer, not sure I get the release timing. A good hop presence throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
