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.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - 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 itís ganky enough to keep you from standing to take more than a tiny, hesitant sip each time. This is the ickiest beer Iíve 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.

gururyan (593) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours a redíish 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 itís very short lived. As far as rye beers go, Sierra Nevadaís Ruthless Rye is still the one to beat. This one falls short, specifically in the danky aftertaste. Not upset itís in my pick-6, but had I gotten a 6íer I wouldnít 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.

Color is copper gold with a actually really nice long lasting foam. Looks great. I even like the old school label. Unfortunately, thatís 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 beerís 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 doesnít 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 (3554) - 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 Iíve had that had "rye" in their name this one actually makes it known. If you want a rye beer. Thereís really no other choice.
