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.

On tap it is an orange amber with a medium head. Taste is a blend of spice and malt with a light hop on the back. Does all that without seeming too complex and finishes clean and crisp. Pretty good stuff.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy gold with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Mild aroma of grain, light rye malt, some citrus and light hops. Flavour, also mild, of light rye malt, some fruit and light hops. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. A simple, mild, easy to drink Golden ale, but not something I’d get again, too mild for me.

Nice cloudy, golden color with a long lasting head. Tasted earthy, with hay and floral, grassy, and light citrus hops. A nice mix. Definitely a beer I would drink again.

Pretty good for a golden ale, though not too golden. More amber from rye. Some citrus, big rye profile and light to medium bitter finish. On tap at Capital Lounge

MadRobin (2063) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Clear, bright amber good with a small creamy off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, mild pine, rye and hints of citrus. Taste of pine, rye spiciness, citrus, bitter herbs, a slightly metallic flavor and mild light fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hophaze (173) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden with medium head and average lacing. Light bodied, smooth taste...rye, a little bitterness, but was surprised to see this is classified as an American Pale Ale. Good beer though. Nice segue from macro to craft (in my opinion) ----Hophaze out

NikkTwist (1743) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Draft at the Khyber. Dark clear gold pour with some off-white foam and lace. Rye and hop flavors but ridiculously smooth. Fairly full flavored. A nice big dark blonde.

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Complex fairly full malt taste sided with some interesting hops very balanced. Good as brews like Hop Rod, mellower. Worth a repeat.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Smells of sweet hops and light lemon. Dark orange color with white thin head. Floral notes from the hops. Good bitter grapefruit pith only. Slightly tinny but light and kind of refreshing.
