Fueled by rage, mysticism and pure evilness, the Red Eye Rye is a sessionable beer that continues to offer more depth every time you sip away. Sure you are selling your soul as you do so, but the fruity aromatics, spicy hint of rye and delicate caramel notes will ease you conscience as you slip into the darkness of pure sin. Best enjoyed in the company of your annoying family. No family members were harmed in the making of this beer.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 From a stubbie. Pours a slightly cloudy deep copper with a big foamy head that slowly reduces to an oily covering. Aroma is fruity and big. Massive pine, grapefruit, passionfruit, biscuity malts. Taste is fruity at the front with a complex bitter finish. Passionfruit, caramel, toffee, pine, earth. Boozey taste comes through at the end, surprising for a beer under 5%. Palate is thick, oily and smooth. Scrumptious.

Bottle. Murky, Deep Amber red. Cream head. No lacing. Huge aroma of earthy hope with citrus backnotes and a big malt bill. Earthy hops and big caramel malt flavours. The alcohol pokes out towards the end which detracts slightly. Wonderfully smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good sub 5% beer. Vaguely caramel malt and some soft herbal malts. Sweetens up a little on the finish but otherwise a classy beer.

Poured a semi-opaque dark ruby red colour with a light tan collar that laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma lingers and is very nice of moderately strong fruity hops (tropical fruits, passionfruit) and a hint of spice. Taste is a nice mix of tropical fruit flavours with no one flavour being over-powering and underlying sweet malt plus a subdued bitterness. Light body. Smooth, clean, refreshing with a very slight bitterness on the finish. Very good.

Jado (773) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brick red with orange highlights and a soft off-white head. Aromas of raisins, biscuits, flowers and caramel. Taste starts out with apple and raisins before orange zest and peppery/spice bitterness emerges. Some citrus, caramel and a floral note towards the end. Very nice.

Muggus69 (2105) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer Pours a very attractive deep copper body, holding a persistent beige head. Excellent nose; lots of hops - passionfruit, rockmelon, stone & tropical fruits, some pine-like spice, melding excellently with spicy rye notes of caraway & heavy toasted breads, toffee & nuts. Smooth palate, slick, holds a fair more weight than the abv would suggest, subdued carbonation. Delivers a solid nutty, toffee, somewhat grain malt body, hops a bit more subdued than aroma implied - subtle ripe tropical fruit & medium bitterness on the finish. Very tasty Rye PA, well tempered, enough rye to keep things interesting.

Brick red pour with decent beige head. Huge fruity, toffee aromas. Orange, toffee, a little spice, and nice little bit of lingering bitterness. Good one.

Smells like a box of fruity chocolates! Opaque in the glass like caramel topping! Seriously! Solid tan head. This is a scary looking beer. Tastes like a forest! Wild intense pine and hops. Are we really calling this an Amber ale? As it warms coffee, bread (rye, I presume) toffee appear. Not for the faint-hearted (my wife had one mouthful and ran screaming from the room). Good serious beer.

hawthorne00 (3503) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Bottle. Clear reddish amber with an off white head that lasts. Roomy aroma of spiced peel, bread, toffee, pine. Creamy texture. Rich for under 5%, with sticky breadcrusts, oranges, kumquat, spices, pine. Gently pinches into a moderately bitter and moderately dry finish. A very harmonious and satisfying beer.

Smaller bottle, rather less good. A bit flabby sweetness, finish seems less dry. Less fresh, too warm?
