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.

At Tap House Des Plaines. More summery and grassy than I expected for a Rye ale which is usually so winter warmery spicey. Nice. Serving: Tap

Bottled 1/27/14. Pour has a medium golden color with some light sediment floating around and a thin cap of white head that fell off. Aroma has rye, nice hops, and pale malt. Mouth feel is medium light with medium low carbonation. Flavor has a bitter rye upfront, flowery hops, lemon zest, and enough supporting malt to hold it together.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Golden hue, murky clarity with tons of small body particles, mostly lasting frothy white head. Excellent lacing. Rye, citrus, grain, floral aromas. Light citrus hop & rye up front with a light hop finish. My least favorite Bells brew so far.

Beautiful golden hue with just a slight bit of haze. Slight hops in the aroma, flowery, but mostly get the rye. Slight hop flavor to highlight the rye, but the rye is the main show. Bold but not overpowering. Malt and caramel framing the rye. Great beer for rye lovers.
