COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What is rye? Rye is a cereal grain historically grown in our region. It has been cultivated since the time of the early settlers due to the scrappy and hearty ability to withstand harsh climates and poor growing conditions. Did you know George Washington grew rye and used it to ferment whiskey? Were pretty sure that is a fact. You will notice the distinct notes of rye, a slightly spicy and grainy aroma not lost in the shuffle of hops and the four other malted grains we use in this fine seasonal addition to our 2X line.

Amber brew with thin head that fades fast. Smells of Rye and caramel. Can taste the malty sweetness but the Rye takes over the taste with a nice pepper spice that makes this brew very good. This one has a thickness that coats the toungue but doesnít leave a syrup finish, rather leaves the lingering taste of malts and spice. Excellent brew.

Aroma and appearance are pretty non descript. However, the bready malts and rye really shine in the flavor and palate. I really enjoy this beer. Have been impressed with this one and the 2XIPA as well. Good for ST which is really a hit and miss brewery for me overall.

Sweetly aromatic rye ale. Plenty of rye taste, some nice sweetness, and a little warmth in the close. Another goods one from ST.

On tap at the Fred. Copper color, with a small, beige head, and some good lacing. Nice nose of caramel, juniper, sharp rye, and syrup. Flavor is sweet, with some savory spice, and a nice, mellow bitterness. Medium to heavy body, very creamy, a little astringent, and sharp. This is a nice, well balanced, flavorful, and interesting beer.

dark orange pour, no head. a little orange, some spice, bread yeast. very oatmeal like in the aroma. very intense bitterness, rye spice adds a nice mouthfeel and itís crisp finish. Itís nice but wish it was more balanced.

crazyvin (2019) - New York, USA - FEB 5, 2015
A clear copper body with an off white head that had some mild retention. A slight presence of carbonation. Aroma had a nice peppery rye note upfront. Some caramel and bread malts where mildly present. A nice blend of citrus and pine hops. Rye hops really seemed to pair well with bitter hops on the flavor. Bread malts and the sweetness from caramel malts seemed to add some balance. Finish was slightly dry. Carbonation was elevated, but not a problem.

12oz bottle poured into tulip glass. The 2X Rye pours a mostly clear copper with a one finger champaign like head that lasts about 30 seconds. The aroma is rye, caramel, floral and pine hops and bread. The flavor is floral and pine hops initially with rye and caramel as well. Overall this is a nice brew.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a small rocky head that fades to a nice ring and leaves great webbing. Aroma is sugary caramel malt, rye, herbal hops, and citrus juice. Tastes weird. Very sugary, lots of rye bread, lots of herbal hops. Not a combo I enjoy very much. Not my thing.

Pailhead (5276) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle: The aroma moderate caramel, light-moderate rye, aged citrus hops, and faint herbal notes. It pours a transparent amber with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thick soapy ring. There are some thin sticky rings of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy caramel and lighter toffee. The finish has aged citrus hops, light-moderate rye, and some light earthy/herbal. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the more of these I try, the more it becomes obvious that barring a ton of hops, I just donít dig rye beers.
