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.

Dark brownish amber, pretty cloudy, with some thick creamy tan head. Nose is lots of hops, maybe on the Centennial end of the spectrum, very floral. Also some sweet malts and some light dough notes. Begins with a spicy and floral and bitter hoppiness. Some nice esters as well. Caramel malts are there, but more in the background, especially on the bitter rye influenced finish. Medium bodied, but perhaps a bit too much carbonation. Great stuff.

Reddish brown pour with a nice medium sized head that lasts. Aroma is rye bread, hoppy, caramel, with a nice dryness to it. Taste is medium bodied rye again, rather bitter, a light chocolate note, lightly sweet, and a bit of nutmeg. Palate is mild and bitter/sweet. Good beer from Founders in GR (Grand Rapids). Would be nice with a hearty meal.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 Bottle from a mix a six. Reddish hue with an off white head that lingers nicely. Good lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and a hint of rye. Initial taste is dominated by hops, but as it goes to back of the mouth, I pick up the rye with sweet hints of berry, malt, and spice. Finish is semi- dry, hoppy, and I picked up a a subtle flavor of candy red hots. Hoppiness lingers at the back of the mouth. This stuff is great and always consistent, and is probably one of my favorite session beers. I always pick up a six when I am in a town that carries this line.

Boy I sure like these beers with malted rye....maybe itís a novelty, but I like it anyway. Big reddish-amber pour, fluffy off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma...kinda suprised me. Thereís some malt there too, but itís definitely here in a supporting role. Spicy hoppiness in the flavor with a better malt presence. Very tasty. Medium bodied and flavorful. I canít think of a Founders concoction thatís disappointed me yet.

igneous1 (1533) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2005
cloudy, deep amber/brownish color, beige head. aroma is fairly strong on the lemony hops and is quite tart/tangy. flavor is initially quite lemony and floral with a bit of a numbing alcohol feel on the tongue. there is a slight herbal chocolatiness in the finish and aftertaste. the hop profile reminds me a little of Bellís Two-Hearted.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Color a red hued amber, with a thin head of off-white. Aroma a cloying aroma of oranges and resin. Flavor is sweet and deliciously hoppy, but lacks much in the way rye flavor, instead a coarse grainy tooth combined with the sticky sweet orange and lime floral. Finish is a touch grassy, mixed with lucious sweetness.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Pour is hazed reddish amber with a thin almost non existant head...smell is very hoppy...grapefruit and pine...wow...this taste great!!! Lightly malty up front, but turning to a nice chewy bitterness...not just something watery on the sides of my tongue, but all over it and what phenomenal body!!!

Bottle. Deep red on the pour with fruit, maybe some grapefruit. Nice flavors of light caramel sweetness and full fruit with a somewhat bitter finish. Thanks Steward of Gondor for the brew.
