COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing Redhook Sunrye, a light, refreshing summer beer brewed with six barley malts, including a touch of organic rye. The opalescent golden color of Sunrye is a result of its unfiltered nature. Light and crisp, this brew was made for slaking summer thirsts.

Pours a nice bright gold with a decent white head from the draft. A little aroma of grain and some spicy hops. Flavor is very subtle, but a decent mix of malt with hop backbone. A decent lawnmower beer.

It was very light, with little head. It had a weak, slightly malty flavor. I wasn't impressed.

Sold as Redhook Summer Rye Ale (guess it's the same thing) from draught. A weak aroma with some hops. Clean and very little malt profile. Cloudy dark yellow-amber with no head. Very litte carbonation, almost flat with a weak, watery body. Some rye/grain flavor and a tang to the paltry hops. Had a light bitter finish and after. Overall, disappointing - weak and watery.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2003 Pale yellow color with a small white head. Flavor is lightly sweet then slightly acidic with a light dry aftertaste. Nothing bad, but lacking in flavor.

(12 oz. bottle) Hmm. Not much here. Initial taste feels convincing, then this beer disappears. The savor-and-swallow is a non-event. Yeah, it's summery and easy to drink, but I don't think I've ever met such a self-effacing beer. Don't bother.

Subtle grainy rye taste, crisp, watery. Not much aroma. Not too offensive. Bland.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2003
I really enjoyed the spicy rye in this - especially at the finish. Nice cloudy gold appearance. Malts were on the grainy side. The only problem I had with it was that it seemed very watery.

Hazy gold colored liquid(didn't realize it was bottle conditioned) w/a pretty good white head that stuck around a little while. Lightly grainy wheaty malt aroma, no hop or fruitiness, actually pretty clean. Same grainy malt flavor as with the aroma, but it is well balanced and has a hop flavor in the finish. There is a slight sourness as well, but overall well balanced. Moderate carbonation and lighter body with a little carbonic bite which is maybe where the sourness comes from, but very refreshing. Not complex but very drinkable summer beer as label suggests, but not something I'd seek out on a regular basis.
