The Civil Life Rye Pale Ale


Brewed by The Civil Life Brewing Company
St. Louis, Missouri USA
Style: Specialty Grain | Ratings: 41 | Alcohol: 4.6%
This isnít the littlest Pale Ale and it isnít the biggest Pale Ale but itís OUR Pale Ale and itís supported by a strong malt backbone. Familiar pale ale traits plus rich graininess, subtle spice and crisp mouthfeel from the rye, lots of caramel, black pepper, pine cones, and grapefruit zest with a well-rounded bittersweet finish. Pick it up and run with it, act like you stole it...as long as you paid for it we donít care. Best yet, our Rye Pale Ale won Gold at the Great American Beer Festival!
