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.

Gravicask, one-third pint. Slightly unclear golden body. Naked surface. Discreet aroma of lemony hops. Sweet fruit-grainy flavour. Thin and rather unvaried (GBBF, 05.08.2009).

I figured this for a lawnmower-type beer so I had one after mowing the lawn. Pours a yellowish-orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of rye and yeast. Rather thin-bodied, and to me it tasted like a macro with some rye thrown in. The rye aftertaste saves it from being a drain pour but this is still a below-average beer.

This beer is underrated, I suspect that people don’t understand it. Pours a nice deep canary. Great citrus, hoppy aroma, with a citrus, hop, yeast, fruity finish. Nice complexity. This beer deserves to be rated higher here.

Bottle. Lemongrass malt aroma. Medium yellow color with small head. Very light taste of rye malt is about all you get from this flavorwise with a mild hops finish. Nothing offensice - just very weak and bland.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottled on 6/5/07. Poured bright golden with just a dusting of white head and lots of yeasties suspended in there. The aroma picked up honey, straw, and faint hints of vegetal notes.. not bad for what it is, but there are better styles out there. The flavor found semi-sweet bready, straw, and honey notes at the core, with just a hint of rye spicage.. dry back-end with light straw bitterness.. refreshing. Light-bodied with solid balance and a good overall feel to it.

This bubbly yellow beer poured with a thin off-white head that disappeared in seconds. There is actually a pretty solid malt base that is fairly tasty. However, this is a beer that is designed for summer thirst quenching, so is a bit thin, but crisp and refreshing.

Radek Kliber (6390) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 15, 2004
Sweet malty aroma , not to deep . The sediment mentioned below did not please my eye. Sorry. Introduction of beer flavour was sharp, but short lived. Some yeasty aftertaste mixed with hoppy bitterness. Unrefined quality, almost brutal to my palate.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2007
On draught at Mohegan Sun. Pours gold with a nice creamy white head. Smells of citrus, rosey, some sweet malt, some sugar, hints of wildflowers, a touch of dry wheat. Tastes sweet and malty with some peppery splashes and a touch of hoppiness. Drinkable and sessionable.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Draft pours light golden, large frothy white head, subtle carbonation, with very sticky lacing.   Aroma of malts, maybe some wheat/rye, and light citrus notes.   Flavor is malty, yet rather wheaty.   Full mouthfeel, medium bodied.   Finishes light, fairly crisp.   This year is much better than last years.   A good summer offering.

Ernest (6196) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dough), note of DMS. Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nothing of value here...DMS in the otherwise vacuous nose, and poorly balanced flavor profile (devoid of malt) with a disturbing aftertaste. Thumbs down.
