3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from the new 16oz cans that lists the ABV as only 6.3%. At first glance it appeared as if this beer poured a deep chocolate brown but upon holding it up to the light I can see that is actually more of clear super deep reddish/orange. The head was of average sized but very foamy and of an off white that dropped the appearance down from a 4 to a 3. Aroma has a good dose of rye bread up front followed by chocolate, spiceyness and citrus hops. Fuller bodied with foamy mouthfeel and average carbonation with a good strong lingering aftertaste. Flavor of rye, chocolate, grass, slightly wet leather, a hint of metal. I really like this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - The beer pours an almost clear rich copper-brown color with a big covering of frothy tannish head. The head fades very slowly down leaving behind lots of thick lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of rye and piney hops. There is also just a bit of light fruit in the background.
T - Starts off with a mix of rye flavor and some piney hops and a touch of bitterness. Through the middle, the hop flavor and bitterness grow alongside a bit of deeper bread flavor. The finish is a mix of rye, hop, and a touch of fruits that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels really smooth and not at all watery. Even with the rich flavors it does not feel overly heavy or thick. The finish has a bit of a dry kick which is nice.
D - Very drinkable. Really great balance of hop and rye flavor from start to end. The flavors are nice and rich and the beer stays fairly light.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a robust brown color with a mediocre, slightly off-white head. The flavor is outstanding. The rye has a definite presence, shining through a flavorful array of resinous and citric hops. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall: I was really impressed with this beer. I really enjoy a good rye beer, and this is one of them. The hops go perfectly with the grains to provide a bold but very balanced flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured on tap at Prime Meats, Brooklyn, this medium brown rye-based ale has a good aroma, sweet and fruity and hoppy combined. Like another Sixpoint beer sampled at this restaurant, Righteous is medium in body, taste, palate; what I’d call middle-of-the-road and what others mentioned as “good all around.” I would like to try this on its own.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at On Photon...Dark brown with a hint of purple, light tan head ok retention but good lacing...The aroma is lots of rye with some spice notes, not bad, but not a ton going on...The taste is more rye, bready, and spicey...Very dry, nice touch but not awesome overall.
If you love rye give it a shot.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap to growler: cloudy reddish-brown color with a mild off-white head which floats above. Nice hops balanced with sweet malt aromas. Taste is full and malty at first, then the hops smack the taste buds to finish bitter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hazy amber with a big white head that leaves outstanding lacing... Aroma is lightly spicy a little toasty, some light citrus.. Flavor follows suit nicely, some definite rye, a little spicy, more malts than hops though some citrus hops definitely come through... Lively, medium bodied... Decent beer, i like that the rye is noticed...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This amber colored ale has notes of sweet caramel and rye malt complimented by spicy hops. Righteous Rye Ale is an easy drinking beer throughout, with the rye backbone in perfect balance with the sweet and spicy notes.
