COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Line Dry Rye is a honey-orange colored pale ale. It is crafted with 10% rye malt and 10% flaked rye for a complex malt profile. American hops give Line Dry a crisp bitterness and a slight citrusy flavor. Clean and refreshing , it ends with just a small note of honey in the finish that brings all of the elements together. The name ‘Line Dry’ was chosen as the perfect fit for summer in the Willamette Valley. With only a small window of opportunity to practice this energy saving practice, we think it is time you sit back with a pint of Line Dry Rye and watch the clothes dry!

Bomber. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. A light nose of honey and bug grains. Mellow, rye spiciness, fruity hops, a bit of caramel. Nice.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of rye and caraway seeds with some wheat and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuit malt, rye, grass and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22 oz. bottle- Pours honey golden with a good one finger head that reduces fairly quickly. Aroma is malt, you can definitely smell the rye malt, very bready and spicy. The taste is pretty much as it’s described, a nice pale ale with a rye twist, you do really detect the rye in the taste too, the honey, although I wish it were more prominent, comes through in the finish, I must admit If I hadn’t read honey on the label I doubt I would have detected it. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium high. Good beer, very sessionable, simple, and enjoyable.

Appearance is honey in color supporting a fair but thin head leaving spotty lace. Smell of citris, honey and floral hops. Taste has a honey breadiness, caramel malt with the rye and a bitterness that makes itself known but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. not a bad brew being a borderline summer session for me.

a nice light aroma with citrus and hits of breadiness. a nice light sweet flavor with bits of rye flavor as well and some spicy notes. medium body. the finish is clean and dry. Not a whole lot of rye flavor but still a nice beer.

Deep golden pour, modest head. Rye crackers in the aroma, a nice balance of rye, hops, and a whisper of honey sweetness in the flavor. Extremely drinkable, superb as a summer beer. While the hop profile is classic Pacific Northwest, this seems almost British-inflected in the interesting character coming from the malts and and the general quaffable nature. I actually think this is nothing less than a great summer beer.

Poured out of a bomber into a tulip glass. Golden color, moving to a little more orange. Nice head, 1/2 inch dirty white. Smell: First, honey then lots of citrus, grapefruit, stops just short of a typical IPA smell. I surprisingly like the honey smell. Taste: The honey is evident but in no way overpowering. Light bitterness at the end. Light body, medium carbonation, bubbly. The carbonation could be a little bit less. The use of honey was done very well. It is the perfect amount to balance the rest of the beer. The rye does not seem to be coming through though, which is why I wanted to try this in the first place. So if you are looking for a distinctive rye beer this probably is not the one, but it is still a good beer nonetheless.

Bottle: Poured a clear copper amber with a fluffy carbonate off white head. Aroma is rye and grain. Taste is water grain, light spice rye finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
