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.

On tap at The Chicago Beer Festival 2014. Pour hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus hops, light rye, and grass/hay. Plain but refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden copper with bright white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a blend of citrus, spice and slight floral notes. Taste is a very slight sweet citrus, balanced by that rye note. This is a very tasty, different APA, a good intro for those afraid of "darker" beers.

Not a bad beer. I was excited to try it and it was kind of average to me. Nice citrus aroma with a really average taste. I was surprised with how basic it tasted, I was expecting a lot more.

rlpeeler (93) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2014
On tap it is an orange amber with a medium head. Taste is a blend of spice and malt with a light hop on the back. Does all that without seeming too complex and finishes clean and crisp. Pretty good stuff.

blankboy (7425) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy gold with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Mild aroma of grain, light rye malt, some citrus and light hops. Flavour, also mild, of light rye malt, some fruit and light hops. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. A simple, mild, easy to drink Golden ale, but not something Iíd get again, too mild for me.

standupguy (41) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Nice cloudy, golden color with a long lasting head. Tasted earthy, with hay and floral, grassy, and light citrus hops. A nice mix. Definitely a beer I would drink again.

solidfunk (8062) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pretty good for a golden ale, though not too golden. More amber from rye. Some citrus, big rye profile and light to medium bitter finish. On tap at Capital Lounge

MadRobin (2865) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Clear, bright amber good with a small creamy off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, mild pine, rye and hints of citrus. Taste of pine, rye spiciness, citrus, bitter herbs, a slightly metallic flavor and mild light fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a golden with medium head and average lacing. Light bodied, smooth taste...rye, a little bitterness, but was surprised to see this is classified as an American Pale Ale. Good beer though. Nice segue from macro to craft (in my opinion) ----Hophaze out
