This is the recipe that won a Silver Medal at the 2010 World Beer Cup. Mark created this beer in honor of his father, Bob Duchow, whom we will always miss. Great viscosity with a spicy rye finish. Subtle hop flavor and aroma.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Vintage 3/25/12. Hazy orange-tan, looks unfiltered. Big steady creamy white head. Really allowing the rye to shine, this is a unique beer. Doughy soapy hop edges. The soapy, dry bitterness is sort of unappealing to me...I’m not really a fan of this one. Biting amber citrus. Kind of gross. maybe infected?

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Grassy hops and a bit of rye, some caramel, and a bit of hay. Kind of thin, easy drinking, light carbonation.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Sweet Mullets brewpub. Clear golden yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma of rye, grains, pale malt and pale hops. Taste is heavy in the rye department with some pale malt and light hops beneath.

arkurzynski (2244) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2012
On tap at brewery. Deep hazy gold with a light amber tinge. Nose of sweet malt, soft citrus, mild rye spice. Flavor is sweet, pale malts, lemon zest, mild citrus hops, and some rye spice. Subtle lingering citrus. Ultra-smooth malt character. Phenomenal session beer.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
On draught at both Vintage brewpub in Madison, and at the Sweet Mullets Brewery in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of crystal hops, multi-grain malt with a touch more rye than most other rye ales. Taste is medium bodied, dry grainy malt with rye, a hint of floral and grassy hops and a touch of spice. Finish has a mild bitterness that slowly disappears leaving behind some dry rye aftertaste. Rye is not overpowering, just right for my liking.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden amber with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light grassy flora note but mainly has notes of bread and rye. Flavor is mainly bread and rye throughout with a bit of crispness in the finish. Quite drinkable.

madvike (3201) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2012
On tap at Vintage as "Rye Bob" - Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Lightly sour nose, with apple and white grape to go along with a nice herbal/floral hopping combo. Tastes very clean, with rye spice coming out, with bread dough, mineral, light herbal hops, and a dusty yeast finish. Smooth and well-carbonated. Very impressed.
