COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Cafť. The combination of sharp citrus & resinous flavors from the hops with the earthy, rustic overtones of the rye malt contribution yield an interesting take on the American Pale Ale.

Golden pour with big off white head. Big citrus pine aroma. Flavor is light spicy rye malt with piney bitter and a citrus grassy hop finish. Tasty.

bhensonb (14495) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of rye and citrus. Med + body. Flavor is very rye, with citrus and something earthy/floral. Malt. For a second I thought "strawberry jam". Itís towards dry, and itís pretty darn bitter. Nice rye finish mixed in with the hop.

Slipstream (2525) - USA - MAR 8, 2015
This is fairly light and smooth for a rye ale. There is a bit of cantaloupe flavor to start, followed by dry APA-type hops. I tasted a little grapefruit and tobacco also. It is easy going, but not bland - a nice new release from Bellís.

Golden colored beer that is more typical of a wheat beer than a pale ale but delicious nonetheless. The beer has a unique flavor that is almost a cross/mash between a blonde/wheat and a pale ale. This cross ends up leaving your taste buds very satisfied.

Barreras (1630) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pours a light copper color with a clean rye malt aroma. Taste is malty with a lingering bitter aftertaste. An undetermined citrus flavor that disappears in the rye malt flavor. A clean tasting beer that wass very drinkable.
