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.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle from a multibox at the BevMo in Natomas. Pours dark ruddy amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is rye with some musty herb. A little spicey. Med body. Flavor starts with citric hop followed by mellow rye. It seems just a bit sour. Finishes more dry than not. The rye renders it pretty tasty.

A: The beer pours amber or red in color with a couple fingers of off-white head and some nice lacing. S: Citrus hops lead the way giving off aromas of grapefruit and oranges. The is a solid pine quality to the beer and quite a bit of rye. A mild bread-type sweetness is there and provides a nice base. T: A mild malt/bread sweetness to the flavor with grapefruit, orange, and lemon zest coming from the hops. The rye is once again prominent and the flavor is what I would call above-average overall. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is lively. D: Not my favorite tick from Sam Adams, but a cool rye beer. I do wish it was a bit more heavy handed on the hops, though.

Tmoney99 (10581) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle sample. Poured clear brown color with an average white frothy head that mostly lated with fair lacing. Moderate toasted rye and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid soft drinkable brew.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Draft… Clear copper ale with a burnt orange tint and a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is more nondescript than I was hoping for – a touch of caramel and a tinge of rye is about all I can pull from it. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is mostly malty and caramely, but there’s definitely a whisper of spicy rye in there if you dig deeply enough. Crisp, clean, dry finish. Very refreshing on a warm, south Florida, February night.

daknole (9053) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Brown pour, very light beige head. Sweet malty aroma, crackers, honey, maple syrup. Flavor is stank, off malty flavors, meh. Nasty flavor actually.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Bottle @ home. Transparent, ruby red appearance with a big orange-tan head. Rye, grainy, malty nose. Delicious rye malty flavor with a touch of citrus and pine from the hops. Great balancing of the hops and the malts. Just a touch spicy. This is one of the best, if not the best, rye beer I’ve ever had. Excellent!
