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.

Nice dark yellow with a lot of stuff flossing in it. Thick white foam. I get hops, rye and citrus in the aroma. I really enjoy the hoppy citrus rye flavor. Basically a good pale ale with the rye addition. Good beer.

Some light hints of citrus/grapefruit, rye which is no surprise, very light hops, and floral notes. Light and just not my preferred style - I prefer a stronger beer with more prominent flavors.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2014
This poured a golden body with a sustained white head. It had a wheat bread aroma with some subtle spiciness. Creamy feel in the mouth. It had an easy cereal flavor with some pleasing zesty bitterness. Rye, anyone? It had a prolonged zesty, earthy bitterness. Not bad.

Hanan (78) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle in cold mug on a hot day. Right off sharp refreshing and a little spicy. Slight malt wheat. I'm not a grapefruit fan but it's slight mixed in a pleasant way. A citrus blend. Sure, some rye in there. And a bit off hops. I'm all in on this summer brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joejames (96) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle to shaker. Pours hazy golden, two finger white head. Aroma of grapefruit, honey, floral. Taste is slightly sweet from the barley malts, peppery overtones from the rye and earthy/citrus bitter. Medium body, slight resin notes, high carbonation. Finishes bitter sweet up front and citrus, earthy that linger. This is good pale ale!
