COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Café. 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.

Old rating. Dark gold. Bread dough, rye spice, lemon zest, mild hop bitterness. Nicely delicate, nothing too overpowering. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle. Color is darkish yellow, medium-sized white fluffy head. Aroma? Lost on my sinuses. I like the taste quite a bit, citrusy with citrus rind and pine bitterness and a little bit of spice. I get almost no rye flavor from it. The carbonation is a bit much for me, and makes the beer fizz in my mouth a too much, which I don’t enjoy. With more subdued carbonation, I’d enjoy this a lot more. Decent, but not worth repeating.

On tap at Rhombus Guys Grand Forks. I didn’t get a lot of rye in this. Orange body. Hoppy pine nice bitterness. Stil not the true I was expecting. But a nice IPA.

Appearance has a large off-white head, some lace and a clear amber color. Aroma is malt, hops, yeast, and a little fruit. Taste is similar to nose, bittersweet with a little carbonic tang and lingering bitterness on back of the tongue.The flavor isn’t bad, just not super interesting. Body is just right. One off for me I think.

Fruity aroma. The fruity and bitter taste. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Okay beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Light orange in color. Lots of citrus orange, lime and rye aroma piling up. Hops and rye duke it out on the mid palate. Rye wins out in the end. It's a great beer. If rye reminds us of winter, I wished the bright, citrusy hops would take over after the rye as a "winter to spring" continuation. But that's being picky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, foggy golden pour, creamy white head. Mildly hoppy aroma with some spice mixed in. medium bitterness. Moderately bitter brew with some spice at the end. Medium bodied, a bit oily, lively carbonation. Probably a one timer for me.

Keg at Jack Of The Wood Asheville, 16/02/15. Clear golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is pale malt, straw, bitter orange, citric pith. Taste comprises light bread dough, rye tones, bitter orange, lightly smoked straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok.
