Roggenbiers (Rye Beers) were declared illegal in 1516 by the Germanic Lords after a series of poor harvests. The Bavarian Purity Law outlawed the use of RYE for brewing beer so that it could be reserved for making bread. It has been 500 years since the passing of the Reinheitsgebot and we have resurrected this lost style to create a very refreshing, sessionable and smooth ale.

There’s something weird about this stuff... Pour is cloudy caramel with a finger of short-lasting off-white head. Nose is lots of pungent, musty bread dough and a bit of spice. Taste follows, with a weird, almost sour element. It’s surprisingly carbonated, and lacking a little bit of sweetness for my liking. Not really my thang.

Canmoore (285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy deep amber, with a billowy off white head. Aroma includes notes of rye, dusty, pepper, and yeast. Tasting notes includes a light whiskey presence, and some dates, peppery yeast, and medium roasted malts. Decent Rye beer, but not a knockout as far as RPA’s go.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie while painting the fence. Deep copper orange, off white head. Husky, doughy, slightly chewy rye body. Oddly heavier than I expected.

bunget (573) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
650ml bottle. Hazy copper body, big beige head with excellent retention. Aroma of grains, spices, banana, raisins, yeast. Taste of spices, caramel, a touch of green grapes, herbs, raisins and yeast. Solid brew.

Gluepot (69) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
A bit underwhelming, but a reasonable drink nonetheless. The nose is a faint combination of malt and rye. The taste features mild Belgian yeast, soft malt, some rye, spices and sweetness. The high-medium and fizzy carbonation takes away from the taste, which is already pretty mild.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 Scent of yeast, dried berries, and chocolate. Clear copper colour. Flavour of raisins, caramel, cherries, and red win . Medium body with lively carbonation. Quite a tasty beer on which to sip for a while.

Looks great, nice color. A bit weak, could have more flavor. Good beer but had higher expectations

jksipa (418) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy brownish amber with a generous off white head. Nose is grain, toffee and spice. Sweet malt throughout with some spice dominated by cloves but not overpowering. A light bitterness in the finish. Lots of different things going on but pretty well balanced. Mouth is medium slick with slightly soft carbonation. OK, but not my favourite from Camerons.
