Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Cafť. 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.

DRAFT from Tuscan in Lake Geneva (gotta love their rotating Bellís 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 Binnyís.

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 Iím 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 Iíve 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

I am not sure whats happening here... its ok but somewhat disappointing. Not much to say good or bad. Drinkable but nothing to search out.

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 itís 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 donít pick up anything from the rye, myself. Iíd call this your basic, mildly hopped, easy to drink pale ale. Decent enough. Had it on tap.
