COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Revolutionary Rye Ale is the winner of our 2010 Beer Lover’s Choice® campaign. This deep reddish-hued ale has a nice balance of sweet and spicy flavors. The slight roastiness and sweetness from the malt blend is complemented by pine and citrus notes from the combination of German and American hops. The defining ingredient in this ale, malted Rye, imparts additional complexity by delivering a spicy and slightly drying finish to this medium-bodied brew.

This beer was a let down. I expected so much more. I had such hop for this beer. It didn’t have to much flavor and was very light. It tasted like a light bad homebrew, that didnt have any flavor. It was a beer that I would never buy again.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
12oz bottle - The best thing that I can say about this beer, is that it’s new. Nice to find a sampler pack with a new beer. Far from Sam Adams greatest beer, but drinkable just the same. Appearance is beautiful with a stunning copper colored body, 2" light tan head with nice retention. Aroma is really, really light in nature. Some pine, light tobacco, touch of brewed tea. Flavor has some light tannic pucker power, tea, piney hop and a hint of bread. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied. Decenet beer from SA but nothing to rave about.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2011
From notes: pours orangey-amber with an off-white head and lots of carbonation bubbles along the glass. Aroma was yeasty with a grassy bite to it. Slightly thick. Grassy, grainy taste with a mild pine note beneath. It gets a bit more of a bite from the rye as it warms, though I was looking for a bit more from the rye throughout.

This was in one of the 12 packs I bought this summer. Pours out a darker brown color. Smell has a good bit of hops on it with some nice rye notes to match. Taste is sweet and easy to drink. Despite the low alcohol there is still a bit of it in the taste. One of the better SA offerings of late.

12 oz btle. Pours amber w/ off-white head that fades quickly. Malty nose that is complimented with a little spice from the rye addition. Silky mouthfeel makes this beer a good quaffer. Spicy rye character contributes to the overall palate of the beer balancing the sweet malts and piney hop finish. An overall great balanced beer that is very approachable, and well crafted.
