COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six is a dark rye beer with layered flavors including chocolate, caramel, pepper, wood, cherry and tropical fruit. It starts semi-dry and smooth and finishes fully dry and tart with a small bite from the hops. The overall balance of the Six makes it easy to pair with richly prepared meats along with many harder cheeses.
Malts: organic pale, caramel, rye, black
Unmalted: rolled rye
Hops: magnum, tettnanger

April 28th, 2012 - Upright’s Brewing Six is a beer that I purchased on a lark, and those tend to be very risky business indeed. Whole Foods has a tendency to groom their beer shelves in a way where a strategic part or a a prominent plateau can pull the shopper’s eye to a privileged beer. How Whole Foods impairs my judgment, I cannot say. I suspect the delicious pizza-by-the-slice is drugged. Whatever the business method chosen, I grabbed a bottle of Upright Brewing’s Six knowing nothing about the brewery, its location, or even what the Six stood for. Supposedly it’s the sixth in a series of venerable beers, but for all I know, it could be the number of bottles they executed to sell. That certainly can’t be true, however, because this is an excellent beer and a tasty companion to a weekend evening. It pours cloudy and chalky, producing a blooming aroma that is intense with rye, rye bread, and a bitter bite that keeps my nose at a safe distance. This doesn’t mean I’m retreating from the beer, but I’m admiring it from afar, like that creepy guy on the back of the bus who seems to be taking in his environment with a little too much intensity. A cornucopia of grains defines the flavor. This is an unwelcome place for sugars. The Six instead focuses on blending malts and the rolled rye to deliver a liquid meal: molasses and bread, pumpernickel too, and a yeasty touch that reminds me of the lighter grains of flavor that always seem to appear in saisons. And harkening back to joyous rides in carts around pumpkin patches or circuses, there is the intense grassiness of golden, bundled hay, all in a delicious drinkable form.

Pours a fairly clear dark brown in color with a small off-white head. Some hoppiness, but a definite spiciness from the rye, which I like... good one...
