COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of malts complement the generous amount of late-addition American hops, creating a perfect balance between the earthiness of the rye and the resinous hoppy aroma.

Draft at Parker Pie Co. Clear gold with little white creamy head. Aroma is clove, misc. citrus, pine needles. Taste is the same with a good rye "kick". Spicy and interesting on the palate. Not much else to say. Decent.

Pours cloudy bright copper color with white head. Big citrus, tropical fruit and resiny pine aroma. Fruity citrus start with watery grapefruit. Finish is earthy rye spiciness and pine bitterness. From the name I expected a smokey roasted brew but this absolutely was not. One of the better offerings I have had from Sebago.

RickTheRick (460) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
De couleur caramel, le liquide assez trouble n’a clairement pas envie d’avoir une mousse au-dessus de lui, celle-ci se sauvant assez rapidement. Les houblons terreux et une impression de caramel brûlé forment le bouquet plutôt invitant de la Bonfire Rye. En bouche, les houblons attaquent tout d’abord le palais d’une salve d’amertume assez intense. Ensuite, le seigle fait son apparition pour atténuer cette amertume avec des notes céréalières épicées qui s’étalent assez longuement en finale. Bien produite, cette bière manque toutefois de complexité.

RyanK (226) - Rhode Island, USA - SEP 24, 2014
12oz bottle pours a clear amber/orange, constant carbonation and a small white head that dissipates quick. Aroma isn’t to complex some hops but I smell caramel more than anything. Pretty light bodied with a bit of bite from the carbonation and rye. Not overall to hoppy taste mostly like caramel to me as well with a little rye bite on the dry finish. Not bad or at all what I expected.

Bottle, from dresden-- thanks Steve! The name got me unconsciously thinking that this was going to be a smoked rye beer, and it 100% is not that at all! Orange-tinted amber, off white had. Slightly resinous, mostly fruity hops commingle with toffee, maybe a bit of spice, a bit of wet forest floor.

Bottle. Hazy ruby with little head. Aroma is spicy with melon notes. Taste follows and adds some citrus. Medium mouthfeel and prickly carb. Solid.

Voodoo (347) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours a copper color with a healthy off white head which lingers......aroma of (I’m guessing) Cascade hops, citrusy and pine notes with a breadiness.......taste is heavy rye spiciness, pine, smooth bitterness, medium mouthfeel.....well balanced.

John25 (680) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Bottle. Clear brown/amber. Aroma is spiced rye malt, with toast. The taste adds caramel, very very light roasted malt, and an earthy hop balance on the finish. Light easy mouthfeel with perfect hop resins. Good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
