Taste of hops, malt and rye in this bad boy. If you like Straight To Ale’s Hell or Rye Water, you’ll like this. Has an earthy finish...pretty awesome brew.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweetwater LowRYEder is a basic rye beer. Very little aroma detected from the copper amber pour with a nice head. Nice balance and rye and malt taste with a hoppy finish. From the perspective of an IPA, there is not much complexity. Finish is pretty clean. Sweetwater LowRYEder is a nice beer to enjoy with food, but just average as a craft beer.

Bottle. Golden color with a large head. Aroma is grains and not as much hops as one would think for an IPA, a tad of citrus. Taste was surprisingly missing of hops also. Overall not a bad beer. Not great but it really was a thirst quencher

Good and flavorful. Pours a dark orange with a good hop flavor which isn’t overpowering.

In a sampler pack from my son. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was fruity and some crisp grapefruit. The taste was bitter, hoppy and grapefruity. It was smooth and fruity with crisp hoppiness and a little peach to grapefruit in the finish. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Murky gold color with not much head. Leather, musty, hop aroma. Bitter hairspray with the definite rye accent mixed in with the hops. Almost a slimy finish.

Bottle pours a hazy orange/amber sweet light malt and honey aroma. Nice hoppy flavors with out much IBU bitterness. The Rye adds some too though.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some caramel malts, a light rye spiciness, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but could be better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange and copper with a two finger white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Citrusy aroma. Orange, grapefruit, peach and white bread. Taste is malts and rye up front with biscuit, pine, slight citrus. Slightly spicy, but mild overall. Dry but long finish of malt and grapefruit. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Not really outstanding, but definitely good. Would like to have seen the rye boosted a little more.
