Rye lends spiciness to the caramel-malt base, while creating a creamy texture. Dry-hopping contributes a fresh citrus finish. Pairings: blue cheese, blackened seafood, herb-roasted poultry.

Pours a darker amber with a thick foamy white head, light carbonation. Hoppy smell with light citrus hints. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the flavor is a nice hoppy goodness and not at all overpowering. I find many ryes too strong, but this is quite delicious and drinkable.

651 ml. bottle. Vintage 2014. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is grapefruit peel, rye spice, light toffee/caramel....taste is slightly floral sweet, with toffee/caramel hints, orange peel, cereal malts, rye spice, becoming dry, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, light of medium body, with slight watery notes, no alcohol, tingling creamy carbonation, with light acid finish. This is a delicately balanced beer with rye, malts and hops all playing a role. As a Pale Ale it is a bit too low on hop dominance, but with the added rye, it takes on nice complexity in both aromas and flavors. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear dark amber with a frothy beige head that rapidly drops to a cover, bands of lace. Sharp aroma of malt and bitter. Taste is nicely mixed sweet malt and bitter rye that move smartly through the palate to an edgy citrus bittering in a lingering finish. A pretty solid brew, worth searching out. Recommended.

Clear copper like a fresh penny, with a medium rocky beige head. Lovely nose of spicy bread dough, pepper, caramel, and a dry-hopped orange citrus tone. Lovely flavor too, with some spicy rye malt mixing with a fresh leafy grassy bitterness and a orange rind bitter hop flavour. Nice hoppy yet smooth caramalt and rye undertone to sweeten. Flavorful and unique.

I pry the cap off my rye ale. I spy a copper beer and my eye detects a shy white head. As it draws nigh, a subtle but spry aroma cannot be denied. I cry with delight at the chai-like supply of flavors. Finishes dry. Oops, spilled some on my thigh, sigh. Bye.

Bomber. Spicy rye aroma with notes of hops and a bit of caramel malt. Pours cloudy copper colored with a big, soapy tan head and excellent lacing. Starts with sweet caramel flavor with a very smooth mouth feel. Finishes dry with spicy rye as well as piney hop flavors. Good, but I liked their others better.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a big frothy creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready rye, some fruit and hops.

The flavor is sweet bready biscuit malts, rye spice, some fruit with slightly vegetal hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent rye pale.
