They should be good men; their affairs as righteous: But all hoods make not monks. Beneath a deep blanket of snow there is a cereal grain that can survive the harsh winters and acidic soils - RYE. Like a draped hood over a monk, it is the righteousness inside that shines.

Luminescent peach amber color supporting a crisp cream head. Easy grainy aroma with appealing floral hop character. Crisp rye and sour mash flavorings piqued with a floral hop twang.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2011 Incredible, rich hop aroma character; a mix of finished oak and pine oil, and herbal mint leaf. There is a touch of citrus there too. The rye grains come through at the end of the whiff. So spicy all the way around; intense. The aroma is just short of being a 10. Hazy mahogany red color. Big fluffy , good, slow carbonation from the pint-sized can. Spotty specks of lace. The flavor is a grainy rye husk, with a bitter, sharp finish. The hops are still there, harmoniously with the woody hops. The oak and the rye malts are terrific together. FInishes with a curious root beer barrel candies, and bubblegum. The grains are bordering on unrefined. Itís a creamy concoction, like root beer. Itís a big, bitter beer, woody and with tons of harsh flavors. Really really enjoyable. It mellows out as it warms up.

Lubiere (10698) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2009
A nice copper ale with a thin big bubbled off white head. In aroma, pleasant caramel malt with nice toffee notes, and a bit of sweet coffee. In mouth, a nice smooth malt with torrefied notes, very British hops, lingering metallic notes, medium bodied. Cask at Syracuse Real Ale Festival, Oct. 25 2009.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours amber and clear, fluffy head. Nose is fruity, cherries, spicy rye notes (albeit mild). Taste has distant notes of rye, more of the fresh cherries and citric hops. Finishes pretty dry slight rye spiciness. Nice.

Appearance: amber shade with tea hints , mid creamy top.
Nose: frontal aromatic , meadow citric , floral with touch of rye. 7+
Flavor/Palate : Hmm. Good mid full bodied with neatly presented rye feel. Aromatic hops on top have good matching partner. Late bittering feel. Very pleasant, smooth rye ale.

blipp (6547) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma with some spicy flourishes. The flavor has rye and sweet malts. Not quite enough hops, but the hops that are there add a nice floral quality to add to the rye. Enjoyable.

dnstone (2301) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Murky brown in color with nice carbonation. Clean tasting, similar to a wheat beer without the citrus.

zdk (1822) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2009
tap at RnH: I canít tell if this is a dark amber or a light brown. In any case, I thought this was a very well balanced brew. Nice herby, bready arouma. Smooth drinking with a dry finish. The bitterness level is perfect.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
RnH: tap: "RIghteous Rye": The pours shows a deep amber, leaving a medium white head. The nose reminds me of stout, with some roasted/ bitter qualities. The taste is unlike anything Iíve had... the grain content is immediate obvious, yet there is more depth with the coffee/ roasted bitters. Well bodied, complex beer. 3.65
