Named for a lonely Beer Camper who never found his way, Lost Guy Rye is something of an unusual brew. Sharing similarities with an English mild, a dry stout and exceptionally dry brown ale, this dark-yet-light-drinking ale is a unique beer. With notes of chocolate, roasted malt, a hint of smoke and the signature peppery spice of rye, it is extraordinarily complex for such an easy-drinking beer.

Medium brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma of malts, smoke, bourbon, licorice. The rye is a little too strong in the flavor for my tastes, brings a woody, smoky character in that doesn’t really mesh with the mild chocolate/licorice in the background. Dry finish, medium body,. Not a big fan.

On tap at the Untapped Festival. The beer pours a dark brown color with a small head. The aroma is a nice mix of rye and chocolate malt. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, but the rye notes also really come through. There is also a nice spice character to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma. Sweet. Light chocolate. Rye, dark orangy brown color, ok head, little to no lace. Sweet flavor. Has bite. Medium body, light creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Kind of Not grabbing my attention. Kind of muddled, gives me a nutty yeasty streak as it warms. Ok.

Tap at Carrboro Beverage. Muddy brown with an off who sudsy cream colored head. Nose is strong rye, fresh malts, light cocoa and coffee. Dry palate, lots of rye character, light grassy hops, roasty, slightly schwarzbier like. I really enjoyed this beer and plan on coming back for more. Very drinkable. Well done, Tyler!

Pours a translucent brownish on tap with dissipating tan head and good lacing. Aroma of rye, slight chocolate malt, and light piney hop. Taste is all rye and water basically, weird and not that great.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap, Bearden Beer Market. Brown, thin beige head. Faint aroma of 2x4’s, rye bread or toast, and caramel. Taste is oddly fruity, then woody, then a dry, crisp finish. I like this stuff...

erickok (5451) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2012
Dark bodied and served with a small tan lace. A very modest aroma of cacao and licorice. Disappointing. Taste is okay, but still moderate in roasted and licorice malts. (On tap at The Top)
