COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth Ryed has an appetizing mid-range amber color with an aroma that is derived from a pound per barrel of whole Centennial hops in the hopjack, kettled by UK Kent Golding pellets. Smooth Ryed is brewed with a variety of malts, including a spicy rye and chocolate malt.

RSRIZZO (1855) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 42°. Color is a deep amber with good carbonation and a soft tight head. Aroma is odd with old wet hay and pine. It has a medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor is spicy rye with white pepper, lemon and a hint of pine. After taste is bitterness with a lingering citrus. Overall its ok, the aroma is just bad, if you can get past that the rest is just ok.

Pours clear reddish-amber with a frothy white head. Grass and grain with a touch of caramel. Finishes with a mildly bitter hop bite.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a faintly hazed, darkish copper-toned body with a smallish, wispy, near white head.

Smell: Less-than-smooth Smooth Rye has a shockingly foul aroma, like somebody forgot about some leftovers in the refrigerator from months earlier. Gah!

Taste: Some rye, some raw, vegetal hop something or other, but it’s ganky enough to keep you from standing to take more than a tiny, hesitant sip each time. This is the ickiest beer I’ve had in some time. I demand my $1.79 back.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin. Medium carbonation.

Overall: With absolutely no hesitation, this was a total drain pour.

Pours a red’ish gold with little head, much more pleasant nose than I was expecting given some of the reviews. Very chuggable session beer with a light body but a zinger of an aftertaste. The aftertaste is what hurts it, but luckily it’s very short lived. As far as rye beers go, Sierra Nevada’s Ruthless Rye is still the one to beat. This one falls short, specifically in the danky aftertaste. Not upset it’s in my pick-6, but had I gotten a 6’er I wouldn’t be so happy about it. This will not be a repeat purchase, too many better choices out there. Not a drain poor, but a chore to drink.

Bottle. Dark bos heuning colour with thick head. Aroma is banana and caramel. Flavour rings on the back and side of the tongue, some spicy tang and some rusk.

Color is copper gold with a actually really nice long lasting foam. Looks great. I even like the old school label. Unfortunately, that’s where the high marks end. The beer smells pretty bad. There is a hefty amount of rye in the profile along with cereal aromas. However, the grains give way to a funky, beer vomit smell. Very unpleasant. Could this be infected? The beer’s taste is much better than the nose but is still nothing special. Dry rye with some tart fruit. Rye bread flavor all the way. Hints of iodine perhaps. Hops profile is fine. I really get the Golding here. Drinkable but that nose is tough to get past.

copper colored, nose of rye but it doesn’t smell great. taste is better that the nose, this is what a rye ale tastes like. fairly one dimensional. Rye ales are not my favorite style, this one in particular is average overall. Id rather have a rye ale from terrapin

kidmartinek (3726) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Ok. Hazy brown. Slight red tint. Dense, dirty white head with a good size. Prevalent rye aroma with a slight bitterness. Staunch malted rye taste with not much of anything else. Of all the.beers I’ve had that had "rye" in their name this one actually makes it known. If you want a rye beer. There’s really no other choice.
