Thanks again to Czock75 for this one!
Poured to NB Globe on 1/20/11
A: Ruby-orange, this beer is lovely to look at. Excellent clarity. Nice sticky bubbles remain on glass far past the origin of application.
S: Although I find Amarillo to be pleasant in more subdued situations, this one matches the blend of malts quite well. I sense grapefruit, orange rind and lemon zest on this one. Very distant scent of body odor.
T: Good, bitter backbone lend itself well to the balance of the malts. Very grapefuity. Continue to sense a bit of B.O. application on this one. Not particularly off-puting, but nonetheless, it makes me sit the fence on the taste here. Still has a nice, saltwater effervescence on the end.
M: Good medium to full bodied ale. Enjoy the moderate carbonation that stings as it moves across the tongue. Above average for this mark.
D: Good beer, a bit too much going on in the bottle. Wish the amarilloís were balanced with something else. Will not seek out, but wouldnít turn down either.

Pours a deep, dark amber. Ruby highlights. Light tan topper. Can really smell the rye in this one. Toasty caramel rounds out the nose. Taste mirrors nearly completely....a biscuity rye caramel. Medium bodied, crisp. Solid drink.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Redís Rye pours clourdy deep copper red with a perfect creamy tan head that lasts a good while and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is sweet caramel and lovely bitter floral hops. The flavor is caramel and floral hops. They are blended well together. The rye is noticeable in the background. Overall this is a delightful beer.

The appearance is an opaque brown with a medium white head, and the aroma blends rye and floral hops. The taste is very nice due to the mild bitterness, slight sourness, and a touch of sweetness, and the palate combines a medium body, thick and slick texture, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

Cellared. 12 oz bottle, brown hue with small tan creamy head, smells \ tastes almost like a barley wine at this point, has a nice rye back bone, some sweet yeast has taken over, not much crisp biterness at this point anymore anyway but I do not really ever remember this having all that much of hop characteristic when fresh, overall, pretty decent and the rye does stick out

Pours red copper with a quickly dissipating head. Aromas of grapefruit and piney citrus dominate a more subtle malt character. Taste however is doughy rye, caramel and malt balanced by the pine resin citrus bitterness. Medium body and carbonation with a crisp and dry finish. Overall a nicely balanced and flavorful brew. I would definitely drink this one again.

Excellent color, smells nice and hoppy. Great on the palate but leaves a little something to be desired in the aftertaste.

Tap at draught 55, NYC. Poured a ruby amber colour with a small off white head. Nose has loads of rye spice, floral hops and citrus tones. Taste is more of a spicy citrus flavour with caramel malt adding to a huge backbone. Grassy tones come late. Booze hidden. Great stuff

Bottle - Pours dark tea color with an average head. Has a nice hop aroma and a somewhat citrus hop taste but more a malty body. Fairly dry finish.
