COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with three varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, Rowdy offers a complex flavor and aroma that is both aggressive and fun. The addition of malted rye to the grain bill lends a peppery and distinct character to the beer which complements the bitterness and floral notes of brewhouse hop additions. Finally, this copper-hued ale receives a liberal addition of dry hops in the fermenting vessel, imparting citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.

Pretty good little rye ale, peppery and dry with a grainy malt base and plenty of spicy rye on the back end. Earthy malts with a hint of biscuit and caramel add balance to the piney, citric hops, while the bitter finish leads to a rye toast fade. Pours a reddish brown with a thin off-white head and modest lacing. Pine and rye on the nose. Slick, slightly undercarbonated feel is pretty easy to put back. Nice pint.

I'd say this is an amber/copper...but a hoppy one...or some kind of hybrid. Has a good rye malt and citrus hops balance going on...not quite an IPA. On the lighter side as far as drinkability, but has some decent strength at 6.2%. One of the first single samples I discovered when moving the DC area. This is a year round beer, so I'm sure I'll be grabbing a 6-pack to try again soon.

OnTheTrail (603) - Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Pours dark brown, off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, plum, very light pepper, not obviously rye. Taste is slightly sweet, definite bitter hops, a bit more rye, spicy notes. No citrus that I can tell. Finishes sort of snappy bitter. Light to medium mouthfeel.

Quick3Beers (1505) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Pours a clear rich brown from a can, off-white head dissipates, minimal lacing. Smells citrusy and piney, a little like cleaning solution. Flavor is a bit of an odd lemon/orange/rye mishmash, rather soapy. The rye is nice and peppery/sour, I just find the hops a little much. Good beer.

JStax (7306) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2017
12 ounce can from Tavour. The beer is a cleqr dark amber with a white beige head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma is spicy, earthy, and floral. The rye spice kicks in through the taste very well. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Decent overall. I really enjoy how the rye is captured in this beer.

Can. Orange, rye malt, and herbal hay aroma. Cloudy brown with moderate head. Mildly sweet orange, rye malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Solid.
