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.

Poured a nice reddish orange amber color with a nice little head and decent lacing. Sedimentation everywhere, like a broken teabag and cinnamon sticks settling all over. The aroma was somewhat IPA like, caramel malts and pine hops. The flavor was citrus hops and mild pine hops over top of a somewhat sweet caramel base. The rye was only detectable in the finish, which was an odd sort of dryness behind a malty rich base. Seemed to be a cross between an amber ale and an IPA.

On tap at the brewery...pours a darker amber with a white head. Aroma is big malt and bitter hops...lots of sweetness as well. Flavor is huge creamy hops and sweet malt...oh yeah...and some of that rye. It could have used some more bitterness and grassy flavors to balance it out. Mouthfeel was light.

Bottle at The Map Room. Pours a medium amber with a thin white head. The bitter hops jump out and smack you right upside the head followed by a nice spicy finish. I am really starting to dig this brewery.

Pours a hazy copper. Could cualify as a very good IPA, Bitter rye, hop resin and perfume, grapfruit and salt crakers. A pretty dry beer with a medium body and nice texture. The abv is perfectly unoticable but present in the stomach. A nice vinegary bitter and salty finish, it would probably pair well with fish and chips (wish Garret Oliver would send me a cheat sheet on pairing, the one in his book is kinda vague) Lively carbonation and medium lacing, i have to admit that reading my own comments i wouldnt try it.. especially since i dont like rye bread. But a word to the wise, try this! I definatly will again.

12-oz. Thanks to BitBucket for the trade. Unalloyed generosity on his part for this round, without a doubt. Pours coppery brown, and fairly opaque at that. Glows copper against the light. The nose is just amazing on this beer. Sour sharp rye with some piney hop dissonance...definitely a perfect match. The attack is crisp, and that’s bulwarked by a nice bubbly mouthfeel that sits between raw and fizz. The finish is quite dry and bitter, though not exceptionally so for the style. Rich nutty rye sourness permeates the flavor as well as the aroma. Really great, drinkable stuff--this beer should probably not be served by the pitcher if I have to drive.

Aurelius (4709) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2011 Brilliant red, big tan cellular head, cool old geezer on the bottle. Grapefruit hop and malt aroma - strong, with some cat urine at the end. Hazy. Medium-light sweetness, hop bite, grapefruit finish. Might have missed some subtlety by burning my palate with chicken wings, but I don’t think so. Over-rated, generally, but decent.

Bottle. Pours a redwood color with a huge fluffy head, may have just been the pour. Aroma was nice and hoppy with a slight hint of the rye. Flavor was yummy hoppy a tinge of the rye but mainly floral aromatic hops. Palate was nicely bodied well matched with it’s flavors. I also noticed quite a bit of sedment. Overall I found this to be very tasty,disappointing me that I only had one.

shadey (1998) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Cloudy red color with a big chunky head that looks like a ice cream float. Aroma is resiny hops with a good amount of caramel malt. Flavor is a delicious and chewy.

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!

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2006
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.
