COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roggenbier is mashed with a relatively high amount (25%) of German rye malt. It’s characterized by a slight refreshing tartness, low hop bitterness, and a very slight fruitiness from the special German ale yeast. Roggenbier is extremely drinkable and is a great beer for the summer.

Rated based on notes taken 11 Aug 2012 -- On tap at the Esquire Tavern in San An. Decent, could have a little more crisp spiciness.

Rating #1300. Served in a shaker from The Growler Room fill- poured a mildly turbid brown with a shade of mahogany, 3 finger sun-faded tan head became 2mm tall with wild lacing about the vessel after a smoke and relieving the dog. Aroma of rye, wheat, and biscuits. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt especially helped to have the rye added to give it a unique body, malt has a breakfast cereal taste to it, finish is drying with a kiss of hops. Goes down WAY too easy- this beer could be dangerous!

Pours a clear darker amber color with off-white head. Caramel, malt, rye, and light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt.

Aurelius (4678) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Lightly sweet, toasted cereal aroma. Clear, marzen colored beer; clingy, ivory head. Breakfast cereal flavor up front, tannic afterwards. Toasty, dry, biscuity. Medium body, pithy mouthfeel. Slightly tangy finish without any fruit or real bitterness. I’ve become gunshy of ryes, but this was very marzen-like and drinkable. On tap, Hay Merchant, Houston.

Amber pour. Overripe fruit and caramel malt dominate this one. It’s light on the flavor, though.

On tap at the Phoenix Saloon. The look is hazy, thin off white head, and reddish amber in color. The smell is straw, hay, rye, and grassy. The taste is better, rye, malts, and straw.
