COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium body, moderate bitterness, copper color, made with 34% malted rye. A rarity at brew pubs, this fabled 'rye' beer is credited with being one of the oldest recipes in existence. Brewed with crystal malt and both Chinook and Hallertau hops, this copper-colored brew offers a complex range of contrasting flavors.

Light aroma: Citrus fruit, bready. Biscuit, sweet malt flavor, fruity, and peppery spice that gets stronger in the finish (assuming it’s from the rye?)

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Had on draft at the downtown location. This is a rich malty beer. The ABV is surprising since it has such a full mouth feel. A bit rye spicy and oily. Nice beer.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
Pours a hazy brownish amber color. Aromas of grains, banana, fruit, and alcohol. Flavor is orangish and spice with a bittersweet finish. Good beer, just not something I would have often

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at Red Rock brewpub. Pours light amber with off-white head. Nose has light caramel and miscellaneous grains. Rye comes through on the palate, although it has a rather thin body and soda-like characteristic - the carbonation just doesn’t seem right. Seems artificially sweet also. Quite watery and drinkable.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Smells of mild hops and rye. Light, mild hop bitterness in the taste. This amber pour has a crisp metallic finish.

On tap at Red Rock. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is full of sweet grains, honey and some light malts. The flavor was quite nice; lots of toasted malts and a heavy rye aspect, some honey and other sweet notes and a light bitter finish of hops. Quite tasty and easy to drink. Another nice one from Red Rock.

12-Jul-08 (22-oz bottle with a competition label only: Free sample bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) A 4% ABV beer out of Utah doesn’t trigger much anticipation in me, but this offering from Red Rock is a nice surprise and proves that an open mind is absolutely necessary with every beer we try. The highly malty nose offers a pleasant graininess, but also a hint of huskiness and a modest, cheesy character that blows off after several minutes, leaving the aroma of grain and husks to represent the beer. Despite the technical issues, the aroma is still pleasant enough to encourage a sip. On the palate, the grainy malt flavor has a spent grain accent, especially in the finish. The maltiness is perfectly balanced by mildly bitter, classically flavored hops and a pleasant, zesty spiciness. Good body, medium in weight, moderate carbonation, with zing from the medium hop bitterness to create a round mouthfeel and lively, refreshing beer on the palate. Hazy, golden-yellow body is capped by half an inch of off-white head that settles to a thin, broken layer. Some spots and strings of lace remain on the glass. Given that this is a 4% brew, the brewer deserves accolades for creating such a flavorful beer with well-proportioned body and zingy mouthfeel. Take away the husky character of the nose and flavor and you’re looking at a really nice rye beer.
