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.

Brown color. A slight sourness from the rye. Bitter with grain. Dry finish. Very light hop presence. I am surprised this was a choice for a beer they would make.

Medium crisp body with sharp carbonation and a wateriness to the finish. The flavor starts with toasty musty malt and lots of rye spiciness. The finish has mostly spice. It an okay beer.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2010
12 oz. bottle sampled at the 2010 NFB&WF at Martha Clara Vineyard. Pours a clear amber with a linen white head. Pleasant aroma of malt, somewhat sweet, with a lesser amount of rye grain. The flavor is similar to the aroma with malt, again with some sweetness, along with some rye grain. Reminds me a bit of a doppelbock. Very light bitterness at the finish. Nice solid beer.
