COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness. Reds Rye is impressively balanced with its hop bitterness and floral bouquet achieved from the dry hop. In the finish, the generous amount of malted rye used accentuates a spicy crisp finish.

Bottled - winter seasonal. On tap - year-round.

Note: Formerly Red’s Rye P.A.

From 12oz Bottle. Pours the color of red cedar bark with a thin layer of off-white head. Pleasant aroma - not overpowering, it gets its elegance from the subtle balance between its character traits. Definitely some notes of toasted rye seed going on, but also some floral honeysuckle, brown sugary maple syrup, and a red pine sap hoppiness. Medium bodied, somewhat creamy texture that delivers the promised bushels of rye to the tongue. The flavor is quite tasty, but considerably more bitter hop biased than the sweet and spicy aroma suggests. Final smack of bitter white grapefruit rind. Overall, a very tasty beer that expertly delivers everything the name promises. Thanks, Tom!

Bottle. Thanks to gonzoneer. Deep brown red color with sediment and with big soapy beige head. Malt, yeast and perfume aroma. Taste of malt, rye, nice bitterness and a lovely aftertaste of caramel. Nice beer. Bière de couleur brun rouge opaque avec des dépots et un bon collet savonneux beige. Odeur de malt, levure et parfum. Au goût c’est le malt, le rye avec une bonne amertume et un bon arrière goût de caramel. Bien réussis.

The aroma has hints of pine and floral. The color is amber with a nice tan head. The flavor of the hops comes through immediately and finishes with a nice spiceness on the palate. As the glass was drunk the hops became more balanced with the hops and the finish was pleasently smooth.

12oz bottle: A red copper pour. Aroma is sweet malt with floral and pine hops. Good flavor with caramel maltiness and a striking bitterness. This is definitely bottle conditioned as there was an impressive amount of sediment that scattered throughout the beer. This might turn some people off but I like it. There was also an interesting spiciness underneath the hop bitterness. My initial impression was that it was somewhat unbalanced but as it warmed the malt backbone really took over and made for a more mellow experience. Overall, an interesting beer that I will enjoy having again.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2006
(12oz bottle, thanks artusory) Lightly hazed copper body topped by a medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine/pineapple, caramel, light rye. Taste is moderately sweet, pineapple/grapefruit, caramel, some rye, light lemon -- very strong bitterness. Medium body with some stickiness, acidity.

POD (198) - USA - MAY 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 I couldn’t finish this beer. The deep red color and appearance was fine. It had an overwhelming rye aftertaste that was too extreme for my taste preference.

Bottle. Fantastic. Hazy deep red/copper pour with thin white head...lots of "floaties". Aroma is spicy/fruity/piney hop goodness with hints of toasted malts. Flavor is great...crisp and dry, complex malts, well balanced overall with a nice hop bite finish. This is the first Founders beer I’ve had, and I’m impressed. This had much more in the way of hop character than many so-called "IPA’s" that Ik’ve had lately. I wish I had another one... :(

"Wow this had so much sedimentation i checked the reviews to see if everyone else had that much before i drank it. Poured a nice orange red color. Aroma was much like the dogfish head 60min carmel malts and pine hop. Flavor was much the same, except the rye was there after you finished your sip. Not a bad beer."

On tap at richos - Pours with an amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s slighlty sweet and malty with a touch of caramel, some flowery notes and a touch of fruit. Medium bodied and smooth with a slight tingle.
