1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber with persistent head. Aroma is slightly chemically and flavor is unpleasant. I wanted to like it but I’m just not a fan of rye beers. On tap at The Shep.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
4/21/2008: Sixpoint Righteous Rye has a hazy/cloudy orangy-copper color with an average off-white head. The flavor is dry and spicy with some delicate floral hops (maybe some Cascade hops as well). This beer is smooth and has a medium body. Overall this is a good, balanced rye beer that isn’t overly aggressive or memorable, but I really enjoyed drinking it and wish I would have had more!
Pint (draught) at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in New York City (Harlem). Rating #42 for this beer...

on tap at Fette Sau. Amber in color with a medium head. Aroma is toasted malt, spicy rye, and some earthy hops. Taste is toasted malts, light caramel, with a nice shot of rye and earthy hops, leading to a moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied- paired with the smoked meats nicely.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Amber color with a very thick white head. Aroma begins with a dryness, possibly from the rye, followed by some roasted malts and some floral notes. Flavor is a mixture of caramel, malts, and some very dry wood flavor. The rye is very prevalent and has a very harsh and slightly unpleasing finish. Not for me.

Tap @ Croxley Ales. Pours an amber color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is rye, roasted malt, and pine hops as well. Taste is caramel and malt up front with pine hops and rye coming to the fore at the end of the beer. Smooth, though a tad harsh at the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler filled at Bellport Beverage. Pours a clear, dark amber red with a moderate off-white head that lasted until about mid-glass and left partial lacing. Pleasant aroma of rye and malt. The flavor is dominated by rye with malt up front and a biting, dry hoppy finish. As the beer warms, the bite calms down a bit. The alcohol was extremely well hidden; I had no idea of the abv until I read it here this morning. A solid rye beer.

On tap at Fette Sau on 9/14/07: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh piny hops and toasted caramel malt and rye. Body starts with nice caramely sweetness and big fresh hop flavor and toasty grainy malt. A good rye beer.

Cask. We were at Dek’s American, which had a pin sitting on the bar, and we were drawing healthy pints for the crowd. This amber-gold ale really had an interesting taste that I felt was a vast improvement over the regular tap version. Bearing the marks of a Sixpoint ale with the floral hops in the aroma, there was a slight cream taste matched by the twang of the rye malt. It was easy to drink if one already knew to expect something different than what memory served about rye ales.
