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 Redís Rye P.A.

Pours a clear dark reddish brown - slightly hazy with a very pillowy looking off white head. Pleasing smooth hop aroma. Aroma is a hops with some malt aspects that give it a smooth feel. Taste begins full bodied with the malt up-front - nice dark roastiness with carmel aspects. Shortly after that comes the heavy hop presence and dryness from the rye. The finish is hop and rye bitterness. The lacing on the glass is very heavy. This is a fantastic beer from a brewery that never lets me down.

bottle. pours an auburn coloured body with a large frothy tan head that slowly dissipates leaving a thin lacing. the aroma is potent with resiny hop notes - lots of grapefruit and creamy bread. The rye presence tends to attenuate the apparent hoppiness and it turns out to be reasonably balanced. brackish at times with moderate carbonation and liberal spiciness in the finish. I don’t know, for the most part it is pretty good but something didn’t really sit well with me. I definitely prefer the Black rye but I’ll have to revisit this one.

I poured this into my HB stick. The head is thick and lacey with an ultra-white, soft cotton top. The beer is an awesome deep caramel-amber with a slight haze. The aroma was very strong with deep citrus tones, bold hops and a sharp sourdough. The taste comes on like a 2-ton hammer. The first sip is all hops, but not overwhelming, itís complex with multiple layers. The tasting yielded hints of cashew, points of sweet cream, and a medium body finish. I downed three bottles of this stuff with ease, this beer is fantastic

Redish brown color. Can smell hops but they smell diffent. Tastes like it smells but better. I love this kind of rye, hops and bitterness at the end. Great beer.

Bottle courtesy of Thaichile. Bottle opened with a loud "POP" and the beer came gushing out! I was able to catch some of it and luckily it stopped gushing shortly after. It poured a murky reddish-brown with a massive long lasting foamy off-white head. Pour this sucker very carefully! I had to wait a while before I could actually drink it. Aroma of floral hops, sweet malt, some spices and a good amount of rye. Flavour of sweet malt, rye, spices, some alcohol and a long hoppy finish. Medium to full bodied. Unique and quite enjoyable.

ABUSEDGOAT (2402) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Tasted side by side with the black rye. Poured a hazy red body with a moderate head. Aroma is caramel malts with lotsa hops, reminded me of Arrogant Bastard. Hop notes are spicy, citrusy and light grapefruit. There is also a detectable alcohol presence in the aroma, woulda guessed more than 6.8%. The rye presence is here moreso than the black. I liked this one more at the start of the tasting, and less by the end. Still, I scored them exactly the same..

Hoppy aroma with not much else. Pours a nice orange with a lovely white creamy head. Flavor is pretty strongly hopped with a touch of malting throughout (light on caramel, sprouts). Very crisp. It dissappoints me that the very distinct rye is never really realized in any rye beers.

Thanks to Illinismitty, a new member in Tennessee, for this one! This pours with a disappointingly small head of off-white. Medium red/orange hazy body. Big íC Hopí aroma. Sweet in the start, the dry bitterness builds nicely providing a well balanced finish.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is hops and rye. Flavor is more of the same. A little too bitter for me.
