Stoudt's special Holiday Reserve ale. Stoudt's Rye Ale is our version of a traditional German Roggen Bier (Rye Beer). Brewed with rye and 7 types of malted barley. Stoudt's Rye Ale features a deep copper color and complex malty palate. The taste of rye comes through as a hint of spiciness in the flavor profile. This medium bodies ale has only a moderate bitterness, but it is finished with a generous amount of two distinctively aromatic hop varieties. The classic german Noble hop, Hallertau Mittelfruch and a new U.S. hop variety, combine to create a pleasingly floral balance to the overall charcter of the brew. The result is a full flavored but highly drinkable winter seasonal offering

On cask at stoudts. Initial pour is clear deep amber with a mountainy head which fades slowly. Aroma is caramel, bready and very fruity. I kinda noticed a friuty bubble-gum like aroma about half-way through it. Flavor is bready, some toasted malts, caramel, rye and a moderate amount of sweetness. Not too much as far as hop presence goes though. Definately not one of the best stoudts has made. Probably brewed with an english ale yeast, definatley not a german hefeweizen yeast as I had expected.

Dry, malty and smooth. Has a grassy/smoky mouthfeel left over at the end.

Nicely done. Looks great (from above, it was in a plastic cup- 32oz. for $5!) doark amberish in color. Small tannish head. Talk about complexity. Malts were everywhere, some sweet others robust. In fact, the hops were almost lost in the shuffle. But hen the jump in right at the end with a drier finish than one would expect.

Had this at the Stoudts brew pub on tap. Nice complexity. Nice and malty, even slightly smoky when it warmed in the glass. Very good

Nice brownish color, light to no head - served improperly and very cold. After warming, it was a wonderful malty treat, with a complex tangy and sweet malt profile, with a nice balancing bitterness. Lingering tangy aftertaste (hops or rye?).
