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.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear yellow body with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light pale malts, slightly herbal, with a splash of lemon citrus. The flavor is grainy pale malt with slight sweetness, a splash of lemon citrus, hints of spicy hops and not much else. Light to medium body. This was low average at best.

Ernest (6538) - 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.

Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear medium gold with scant off-white head. Not much nose: sweaty, maybe. Light body. Almost watery. Almost corny mid-palate; just a hint of rye sourness, but only enough to let you know that there’s a flavor here that you wouldn’t ordinarily expect, so...it kinda seems like an off note. Not much finish. Company says it "tastes like watered down grain alcohol. The aftertaste is like rubbing alcohol."

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 (6300) - 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.

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Shaw’s (Ellsworth, ME). Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est dorée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de pamplemousse et de céréales. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de seigle en arrière goût. (Rating #2743)

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2004
This is a golden beer that's highly sedimented with tiny still particles clouding the whole glass. There's little to no head. The aroma is grainy. The flavor is citricly acidic and vaguely sweet with an underlying crisp malt flavor. This is actually a very good light cooler of a beer.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Rerate Kind of musty, but some decent buttery notes redeem it. Original 3.1[/I} Believe it is now packaged as "Sunrye" - similar to the ESB now being called Amber Ale. Decent lacing head, cloudy appearance with a lot of sediment swirling around. Bit of a bubblegum, banana aroma to it. Treating this as a wheat beer - but I see now that it as considered a blond ale. Bit of a hard to pin down odd twang to the aftertaste - not unpleasant - just different. Flavor - very dry, bit of a hoppy undertone.
