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.

No head looks like a pale lager. Barely any smell. Taste? What taste? There is barely any taste in this beer at all. Easy to drink, but not exciting in any sense of the word. Some rye flavors, and less hops than Bud Light.

Pouring a hazy medium gold colour and a large foamy white head, this one came with a sweet, hoppy aroma, the rye perhaps? Taste was smooth and clean. I could knock down a LOT of these on a hot day (just to keep myself hydrated, of course).

A decent rye beer. I’m partial to rye beers (and rye whiskey), so I enjoyed its soft, banana like rye aroma and sweet, nutty and bready flavor. This is not a bad choice if you can find it at a decent price.

Overall Impression: A pretty typical summer ale, not a whole lot of exciting flavors in this one, probably best for outside/hot day/quick drinking consumption.

Draft at Brick House in Davidson. blah. Rye is nowhere to be found, as far as I can tell. Just another weak "summer ale." Promptly switched to Highland Gaelic after this.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light amber with just a trace (almost none) of a white frizzy head that virtually was gone in a second or two and produced no lacing to speak of. The aroma was very faint of a light grain malt, a faint odor of some grassy hops and a mild earthy yeast with a hint of rye and maybe a little citrus (lemon). Taste was pretty bland yet quite crisp with a slight malty feel and a mild hint of rye, but not much else. The flavor faded from the taste buds almost immediately following the swallow. Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with a watery texture and a light carbonation. Overall this was a extremely light beer with a very light flavor and a mild carbonation. That being said it did possess a good smooth and easy drinkability and is ok if what your looking for, is a light beer with a low ABV…

Slightly cloudy golden yellow color with almost no head to speak of. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is a little dry and grainy with a hint of hops. Pretty average.

12oz bottle. Pours a very clear golden with huge fizzy soda bubbles and basically no head. Aroma of vanilla and very light honey sweetness. Flavor follows with slightly more depth than the aroma, vanilla, glassy hard candy taste, plain-jane, a bit sweet and just a tad tart. Medium/light bodied, almost a hard-candy feel, big fluffy soda carbonation.

Pours clear golden with a wispy white head of light retention and sudsy lace. The nose is spot on for silage corn and grain. Flavors are somewhat of corn, with light sour grains mid-palate. The "touch of rye" is just that, showing up in the finish. Lightly hopped, this summer brew goes down very easily with a soda mouthfeel. Not anything jaw-dropping going on here, but makes a nice first impression in 90-degree summer sun by the pool.

Pretty drinkable, but uninspiring. Dark straw color with very little head. Sam Adams Summer Ale is much superior flavor wise.
