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...

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.

Draft in Williamsburg, Nyc. Hazy dark cider with foamy head. Grainy-hop nose and body. Crisp and fruity hop. Nice rye balance. Maybe a little light, but great flavor and interesting body.

on tap at fette sau, pours brownish amber with a thick off white head that doesnt last so long, carbonation is reminscent of cask ales, nose is beautifully hoppy floral, with notes of rye and malt subtleties. hops really lead the way in this beer but it is extremely drinkable. a pleasant suprise. sooo delicious.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Fette Sau as Righteous Rye. Mildly hoppy aroma, like a mixture of American and German hops. Cloudy dark brown colour. Very small tna head. The flavour starts off nicely roasted, then comes a mild aroma hoppiness. The finish is malty and roasted with a slightly strange tartness. Good nevertheless.

Tap at RnH. Muddy tan pour with standard white head. Aroma has lots of pumpernickel and barley with plenty of floral hops. Flavor is more floral hops and corn sweetness. Slightly buttery, despite the crisp carbonation, and a perfume finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on draught a few times, most recently at the Ainslie Block Party. Pours a dark, muddy brown with a medium, tan-white head. Aroma has some nice, roasty malts, wood, spice and mild caramel. Flavor is sweet with more caramel and, doughy bread, rye spiceiness and some earthy bitters. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with some light, burnt malts and lingering hops. A very good, dynamic beer.
