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.

beer-yum (1368) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2016
Restrained aroma in a copper brown pour. Full bodied flavor with a spicy twist of rye to surprise. Smooth clean finish doesn’t overpower the body.

Shark_Pants (613) - 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 (315) - 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.
