This special brew incorporates malted rye in the grain bill lending a spicy character and complex flavors. Generously hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. This hoppy pale ale has a sneaky bite that will creep up and leave you smiling!

Bottle… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose furnishes spicy grain, buttery caramel and a component of dank, musky hops reminiscent of funky feet. Medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is malty, but also moderately bitter, providing caramel and spicy, dry grain. Finishes crisp and mildly bitter with a kiss of rye. Dries way out. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

On tap at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, VT. Pours a lightly clouded copper colored body with a finger-width, very frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a lot of lacing throughout. Aroma is rye spiced citruses with some bready caramels to balance. Some grapefruit pines, a few tropical fruits, and resins. Flavor is similar. Lots of grapefruit citruses up front before some bready caramels with a light sweetness balance. The rye spice comes in nicely in the middle with more citruses and some florals before this finishes fairly bitter with pines, earth, and a few resins balanced with a nice rye spice and slightly bready caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid Rye Pale Ale. Lots of of citruses, pines, and rye spice with a nice malt balance. Very enjoyable and well put together.

Thanks Shawn for picking this up for me in Montpelier. Poured into a Duvel Tulip at Fridge TEMP!

A - Half-finger head crystal clear with big and small bubbles. SRM 4 on the scale. Dark gold to light brown in color. Head dissipated fast with no lacing.

S - Very light Rye, lots of very earthy malts and minimal bready yeast. It has a golden wheat sort of scent like a german wheat beer.

T - Hard to really late. Solid rye which I’m not a fan of in beers. I’m not a rye guy so this is a subjective taste test. Very earthy, very drinkable, Taste is rye and roasted malts.

M - No carbonation, light bodied, dry finish

O - It’s alright. Solid B on my scale but I’m not a rye lover. wouldn’t buy again.

Pours a hazy amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has a musty earthy maltiness...rye is notable but its a bit stinky too. Flavor is malty with a touch of caramel...rye stands out...mild bitterness...earthy. mouthfeel is medium and lively with a malty/earthy finish that bitters some.

bottle courtesy of reynolds314, thank you! this is a really well done and unique pale ale, i really enjoyed it and wish i could get it regularly. delicious. the body is very very full for a pale ale or 6% beer in general. the rye and hops play very well in the mouth, the aftertaste is terrific and you keep wanting another sip. nice hoppy start to a great hearty cereal malt finish. good stuff for sure.

Marheb (3173) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2012
Un bon bouquet d’houblons fruités accompagne le seigle. La présence en bouche est un peu ralenti par un passage à vide trop liquide. L’amertume est bien calibré avec la douce présence caramel. Buvabilité moyenne.

Bottle shared by Tom. Pours a clear reddish amber with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of light pine hops and grapefruit with a hint of backing rye. Flavor has a real nice hop profile with grapefruit and pine with a backing grassy and light grain notes.
