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.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. The nose is malt and grain. The taste is similar with a touch of sourish rye in the finish. Medium, fairly flat bodied. Meh.

12 oz. Bottle. Spicy hop aroma with rye. Appearance is yellow gold with small white head. It is actively carbonated. Taste is sweet malt and rye with a mellow bitterness. Light bodied with crisp finish. Good lawn mower beer.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2009
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled on: 04 23 09. Appearance: Pours a brilliant, bright yellow body with just under two fingers of white suds. Smell: Soft, mild nose of light pale malts, herbaceous, spicy hops and just a mere hint of lemon. Taste: Sweetish, simple maltiness with maybe a slight wheat character to it. A drop of two of lemon juice. The one really lacking component is the purported rye grain. Heck, the spicy hops are providing more spiciness. Finishes dry, vaguely spicy, but nicely crisp. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Fairly light, easy-drinking, refreshment apropos to parties by the pool or grueling yard work. Iím sorry, Redhook, but when it comes to my refrigerator, Oberon has already booked that summer gig.

It was a very mellow beer that didnít seem like it should be in the "summer" category. I feel like it needed something more to it.

Bottle. Clear golden, small off-white head. Smells bready, a bit spicy, a bit yeasty. Rye is apparent in the flavor, along with some biscuitty malts and a tiny bit of spicy hop at the end. A decently drinkable summer brew.

Very light, no head, faint citrus aroma and flavor, nothing special here but drinkable on a hot summer day.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 23, 2009
A golden summer beer. Some sweetness and rice. A hint of hops to make it refreshing and not too sweet. No spice from rye, balanced and drinkable.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2009
Golden in color, seemingly made to compete with other light summer microbeers, but comes across non-descript. Non-existent head; cloudy haze. Mild aroma that features some citrus notes Very crisp for an ale, reminiscent of a cream ale. Unfortunately, the beer is thin and has a very tame aftertaste. Drinkable if youíre looking to quench your thirst.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. Some caramel malt, hints of rye but more grain and a hint of spices or seeded rye. Thin body simple and eh.
