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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Poured into a 12oz. Glass. Nice dark and reddish hue. Aroma was suprisingly hoppy. Flavour is nice and malty, full bodied beer with perfect Carbonation. Overall a rye that impressed me and will look for again.

Very smooth - love this beer. Subtle rye, good amount of hops. This beer is made for me. I am a fan of rye, this is perfect. Sam is middle of the pack for me usually, this is excellent.

Pours out a clear, coppery red, with a nice white head with good lacing. Deliciously sweet aroma, combining nutty rye malt, some caramel, and a hefty dose of citric and grassy hops. Taste wasn’t bad either. Smooth, well rounded, yet subtly complex with a medium-full mouthfeel. Nutty, citrus bitterness, some smooth rye, mild toast, ending with mild hoppy bitterness. I loved this ale, I dare say Sam Adams best.

This beer pours a deep amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are rye, bread. The mouthfeel is slightly bitter and dry with a medium body. Thus was a very nice beer. Cheers!

Appearance: light copper, with a thick, two-finger off-white head, excellent lacing. Aroma: toasty malts and warm rye bread, with notes of good spicy heat and a generous bit of fruit: cherries in light syrup and even some citrus. Taste: as the aroma indicated, with sweet and toasty malts over peppery rye spice and tart fruit notes; there are some slightly hoppy notes of pine and citrus. Finish: smooth, chewy, with sweet malts slowly giving way to a last gasp from the spice. Notes: Sweet, spicy, fruity, toasty, crisp, and drinkable. Wonderfully flavored, wonderfully balanced. Liked this a ton. Very much like a rye lager meets a watered down barleywine, but in a very good way.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2011 medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, astringent, long finish, amber, orange, clear, white foam, toast, herbs, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, creamy, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, OK, I used the words from the "list." And this works as far as it goes. This ale is spicy in its nose and taste. This is not the spiciness of a Christmas spiced ale chief among them the Anchor but nevertheless spicy without adding spices. On the Anchor scale, it would be 25%. The spiciness comes through even in the Samuel Smith glass, which isn’t a good nose glass - the Spaten is far better than this and the Bud. Sadly, it is only available in a variety pack. Enjoy!

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!

On tap. Poured a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipated to the edges and laced nicely. Aroma had a slight grain note with citrus and grapefruits as well as a hint of spice. Flavor started with a note of rye and bread but was joined by a growing grapefruit note with a hint of citrus coming out in the finish.
