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 first I found it a little thin and bitter. After pouring it into a pint glass liked it a lot more. Huge white lacing on the glass. Pretty hoppy, but in more of a bitter sense. Doesn’t really have that hop aroma of two hearted. I don’t even know what to look for when it comes to rye in the malt bill. All and all...me likes.

DRAFT from Tuscan in Lake Geneva (gotta love their rotating Bell’s tap); pours a darkish / bright yellow with a thin head. Nose is juniper / resin and a citrus (grapefruit?) hops with a (kinda) smoothing from the rye. Not an IPA or a APA but very similar and very tasty. Will look for it at Binny’s.

Aroma is sweet hops, rye, a touch light but not bad. Appearance is as advertised, golden, somewhat dark but a thick white head. Taste is hoppy but not to an IPA, the rye spice comes in, light but solid. Mouthfeel is perfect, softer carbonation than expected and a decent thickness in texture. Not bad at all. Overall, I was not expecting it to be as good as it was, so I’m pretty satisfied.

Nice. Pale ale plus. Bit more malty than the norm; bit more flavorful than the norm. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle, pours a golden copper with noticeable carbonation. An aroma of citrus and earthier hops are first detected. Bringing it in, there is a medium amount of taste, a lighter body, and with some bitterness. Has a crisp, dry finish. One of the better rye beers I’ve had, but lacking in flavor in general.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, sweet, lightly hoppy. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
