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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 Another outstanding Founders brew. Rich malt hop aroma,sweet malt with a touch of cherry and a big bitter hop followup. Palate is a little harsh, but its full body and great hops and rye flavor makes this a winnerIn fact,it has now become one of my favorites and my rating for ithas been significantly highened

Bottle Pours a slightly hazy dark redish copper color witha thin but lasting off white head. Chunky sticky lacing. Rather sweet fruity aroma like the fruit cocktail I remember at school luches as a kid. But with a nice hoppy slant as well. Flavor is more of a woody bitter hops and the ABV is noticeable as well. Dry hopping really brings it to the front. Pretty strong. Thanks to Ohiodad for this one

12oz - Aroma is strong hops and subtle malt. Pours a deep red with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor is hoppy, yet subduded by rye and malt. A sweet finish of cherry and lemon. Palate is smooth and creamy, not as tart as the flavor and aroma predict. I like rye brews and will have to buy more of this.

Poured Red with a huge foamy tan head. Nose had lemon, strawberry and malts. As I warmed this in my hands, I also got notes of spruce. There be hops in here. The taste is very well balanced. I tasted lemon-grapefruit hops. Smothered over a malty-bread backbone. This goes down smooth, Ha! Crisp clean dry finish. Wow, this is a really well made brew. It was gone before I even noticed. Thanks to OHIODAD.

This beer looks and smells awesome. However, not a good tasting beer. Sour and bitter, mayne itís just a bad batch, but I donít like.

Courtesy of Ohiodad. Poures a deep orange/red color with a fluffy head. Smells pleasant with a citrusy hop aroma. Big grapefruit and citrus rind flavor in the fore. Smooth and creamy malt in the middle and a pleasant quenching finish that leaves a bit of bitterness in the aftertase. Nicely done!

GTM. Smells like a pale ale or an IPA. Floral, hoppy. Nice amber color. A really solid brew. Really nice flavor. Hoppy, with malt. As the commercial description states, "impressively balanced." Hard to describe the individual elements.

Beer pours cloudy orange brown color with a nice totally retained beige colored head. Aroma is also enjoyable with a wonderful floral hop aroma, a bit of malt and rye. Flavor is very hoppy bright as to fresh citrus. Very enjoyable strong ale. ABV is not noticable.

pours a gorgeous mahogany color with a two finger off white head. Dangerously quaffable, this brew has a good balance between bitter and maltiness. Thx santa
