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.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange blush on it when held to the light in the room. Fat head of off white foam that fell slowly enough and left lace and a small ring. Nose is lemon, lemon peel and some spicy rye. A powdery and perfumey floral and a bit of spice. It has a juicier fruity scent that reminds me of orange but it’s hard to place. Citrusy . The taste is sharp and bold. Dry breaddy rye with a touch of spice. The citrus is powerful and the sweeter fruitiness is juicy and laid into the beer. The finish is slightly sharp with a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and a bit of bitter to last.

This is a strong beer for only 6 percent and the flavors are bold and uncompromising.

Color is a golden, orange hue. Has a lightly hoppy aroma. I don’t pick up anything from the rye, myself. I’d call this your basic, mildly hopped, easy to drink pale ale. Decent enough. Had it on tap.

(tap) clear golden amber colour with medium tall tan head; aroma of grapefruit; lightly bitter flavour flavour with a long medium bittewr finish; don;t let the name fool you - this is more of a tasty IPA than a golden ale
