COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy Red Ale aged on Live Oak. Rice University is turning 100 years old this year, and we brewed this batch of Secessionist in honor of their Centennial Celebration. Every ingredient was carefully selected to honor Rice in some way. We put rice hulls in the mash and Centennial Hops in the boil, layered on top of a Red Ale (in honor of Rassul’s dorm. Baker College). Also, the Arborist & Groundskeepers at Rice hand selected logs from Live Oaks on campus and we aged this ale on discs from those Oaks. Look for a big citrus & floral nose followed by a malty mouthfeel that begins sweet and finishes dry. The vanilla tannins from the Live Oaks come through on the finish.

Nice amber color with a thick and soft layer of white head. Quite sweet aroma with a spike of light floral-pine hop. Very smooth drinking; starts moderately sweet and becomes pleasantly bitter with a clean floral finish. A surprisingly good amber...thanks to the brewers who are reclaiming this formerly mundane style!

Deep amber with a frothy whitish head. Aroma of bready and caramel malts and floral and citrus hops. I really don’t get much of the oak. Semi-sweet malt and subtle, but nice, bitterness. Medium bodied. Not bad, though the oak is a very minor aspect.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a clear amber with a thick frothy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is bready malt and floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet raisin malt and nice light bitter finish. Easy to drink a good
