Gramarye is the practice of learning magic. For thousands of years, people have used a grimoire (book of magic) to cast spells and summon spirits. Of course, magic fell out of favor over the centuries, the same as brewing with rye. Interest in magic seems to be on the upswing these days, and so is the interest in brewing with rye. A coincidence? This is our take on session pale ale made with a dose of rye malt to give it that luscious feel and snappy finish. We think it is magical.

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours clear amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is floral, piney, limited fruit. The taste has a crisp light bitterness, some citrus balance, and a touch of the eye spice.

UXO (871) - CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of loose light tan head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is spicy rye, caramel malt, pine resin, citrus, pumpernickel. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild spice. (7/10) Medium body tending to watery, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5) Thatís some pretty impressive chops for a session-ABV ale. Lots of aroma and flavour from the spicy rye makes this feel like a much bigger beer than its puny 4.4% ABV. It falls apart a little on the watery body, but all things considered, really quite pleasant. (14/20)

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
650ml bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some caramel and light spicy notes. Taste is a light citrus and spicy bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with nice carbonation that feels good on the palate. Overall, a nice easy to drink pale ale that is tasty and recommended.

For a session, this is quite good. Getting the rye notes. A little watery compared to other sessions, tho.

slowrunner77 (7278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Light and session able. Not a ton of depth but light malt and hops with some spicy rye. Would be a quality spring or summer seasonal.

Huge malty smells. Pearlescent brown with nice lasting head. Smooth malty flavor that stays refreshing and not to sweet. Nice medium body.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Rather dark caramel color. Thin fine persistent sandy head. Mild soft malt flavors and aromas. Fairly sweet, woody and definitely low on the ABV bite. Very drinkable malty PA

Pours copper red. Aroma is hops with pepper and spice from the rye malt. Low to medium bodied with a sharp, refined finish! Lovely drop!
