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.

Can at R.F.D. Murky brown pour with small skin of head. Difficult one here, so many elements in play. Rye ale and old ale come to mind. Musty, tart aroma . Taste comes in with some funk and wood. Mildly spicy with minor rye sourness. This one’s all over the board, but good.

Reddish brown appearance with a large cream colored rocky head and good lacing. Aroma of grains, especially the rye, leaves a lasting early impression. Spicy, floral hops prevail in the taste and linger in the finish. Body is a bit lighter than expected but far from disappointing.

Can from the ’Craft Beer Corner’ at Fedex Field, Maryland. Pleasant rye beer, with earthy and spicy malts, berry fruits, leafy hops and a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

Thanks go to an old college friend for bringing me my first D.C. brew. And a pretty good one at that. Some nice grainy hops with a bit of a nutty finish. Not the biggest rye fan but this is solid.

slowrunner77 (12456) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Dark amber pour. Huge rye spice Caremark and bready nose and flavor. Bitterness is there, but the hop flavor and aroma seems quite faded. No date on the can, but seems on the old side. Intriguing enough to seek out on tap one day.
