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.

kramer (6313) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Can. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger frothy beige head. The nose is a mix of citrusy hops and a nice spicy and earthy rye base. Smells a bit of crystal maltiness. The flavor is a little more slanted towards the spicy rye aspect up front, but becomes a bit more bitter and hoppy towards the finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a lingering hoppy and rye malt finish. Interesting beer, I like the heavy rye flavor and the restrained sweetness.

JDBaker11058 (2008) - Maryland, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Appearance: muddy dark brown with a trillion floaties in suspension, a finger of foamy light tan head. Aroma: toffee, spicy rye bread, slight grapefruit. Taste: caramel, toffee, grapefruit, light pine, toasted rye bread. Finish: lingering slight sweetness, a bit of rye head, and some muddled hops and cardboard. Notes: Perhaps an expired can? The guck floating around didnt seem consistent with other descriptions, and this was not nearly as good to me as the high ratings suggest. Theres no born on or best by date on the can, so no way to be sure. 12 oz can from TW&M in Alexandria, Virginia.
