COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? Humulus Lupulus, the wolf bine can be fierce, but L’il Red Rye, the grain at the heart of this beer, has more than enough character to run with the wolves. Amarillo and Simcoe hops combine with the earthy spice of rye, and the richness of Munich and caramel malts to create a beer that’s well worth a short cut through the woods.

Shark_Pants (452) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2015
Hazy copper red colour with tight ivory head. Aromas of spicy rye, biscuity malt, stone fruits and earthy hops. As expected, the rye spiciness is prominent in the taste as well, with burnt caramel, light grapefruit, pine, rye bread. Light bodied and peppery on the tongue. Quite decent.

GlassBrass440 (290) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 7, 2015
Pours a crystal clear ruby red with an everlasting offwhite head. Aromas of rye malt, dank hops, and caramel. Flavours are of sweet malts up front followed by a generic hop citrus charecter and finishing short and dry. Full bodied but without a lingering effect.

Beer5000 (5058) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2015
660 ml bottle. Clear deep red body with a nice, dense, lacing tan head. Quite strong malty aroma with some dry fruit and hint of peaches. Flavor is sweet malt, citric fruit like peach and slightly floral and pleasant bitterness. Fine balanced body and good aftertaste. Nice one.

tfredvik (1417) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Crystal clear, brilliant copper body with a rather small, off-white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Very sweet and very strong aroma of sweet caramel and lots of overripe tropical fruits. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, overripe tropical fruits, oranges and hint of spices. Quite heavy bitter long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, smooth and dry. A brilliant amber ale!

visionthing (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2015
65cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian, thanks a lot. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Malty, breast and rather hoppy aroma with caramel and slightly spicy and bready notes. Quite sweet with bready rye flavours with hoppy notes and a decent bitterness. Tasty, but a bit too much caramel for my taste.

Foffern (1431) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle at home. The colour is reddish brown and is slightly hazy. Small, beige head. Aroma of berries, leather, pine, caramel and fruity hops. Hop dominated flavor with grassy hops, berries, harpix and heather. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. A tasteful and aromatic beer, but the bitterness is maybe too dominating.

Hop_Hedonist (323) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2015
Another superb brew - GP are killing the pig - full body but so smooth it just slips down easy as - malt balanced beautifully with earthy hops - almost delicate rye edge - the bitterness isn’t overwhelming at all but gives the taste buds a nice little punch in the aftertaste. Lovely.
