Subverting dominant Barley Grain privilege, Drake’s Occu-Rye demands equal status for long oppressed Rye grain. Further, we have ended the patriarchal dominance of Craft Brewers who insist on hiding Rye’s light under a bushel (of hops) by presenting a beer brewed with an eye-watering amount of Rye. Barley Dominance Must Die! Hella Hella Occu-Rye!

Tap; my last taster of the day. Perhaps I should have started with this one, but after the rest; meh. Pours clear amber with a small white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is grainy with notes of spicy rye, caramel and hay. Flavor is the same, mildly sweet, mildly bitter, light bodied.

Tap @ Porky’s - San Leandro: Clear amber color with nice white head and spotty lacing. Pleasant sweet aroma of sugar and malts. Tangy malt flavor with a multi-grain breakfast cereal aftertaste. For the style, well done.

joeneugs (5751) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
On tap at the Barrel House. It pours a nice clear golden orange with a good off white head. The aroma has some fruity hops with mildly toasted malt. The flavor is bready/toasty and spicy with a decent piney, woody hop presence. Not too bitter and light bodied. A nice mild rye beer.
