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.

Hazy auburn red with a moderate, light tan head that slowly dissolves into a thin layer. The aroma is hoppy, slightly sweet and intriguingly spicy. Pine, grapefruit, caramel, some whole grains, dry bread and some serious, succulent malty sweetness. The body is smooth and creamy with mild carbonation. The flavor has more elements of nice balance: sweet malt and bitter hops are both equally present. The hops seem to last a little longer as it is carried on the mild but warming alcohol on the finish. This is dangerous at almost 7% because its so drinkable. Maybe my favorite Founderís offering yet...

Pours a healthy red to slightly brown with a decent dense head, but perhaps a bit too much in the way of bubbles. The aroma is malty and lightly sweet with what I think is floral Cascades and something a bit juicier. The mouthfeel is is smooth and creamy, with tiny little bubbles and a decent viscosity. The flavors are strong and balanced. Sweet and creamy with rich caramel malt up front turning very quickly into spicy juicy hops. The rye starts to come through with the hops, but it keeps on keeping on, giving a nice lasting interplay with the hoppy bitterness. I really enjoyed this brew and Iíll be picking up a sixer in the not too distant future.

This is a red-brown colored beer with a thin tan head and medium carbonation. There is a lot going on in the aroma. It smells hoppy with caramel, spice, grapes, and its fairly sweet. The flavour is hoppy and spicey with a bitter finish, some faint rye. Very drinkable beer.

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 thatís 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 (5032) - 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 donít think so. Over-rated, generally, but decent.
