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.

(tap) clear golden amber colour with medium tall tan head; aroma of grapefruit; lightly bitter flavour flavour with a long medium bittewr finish; don;t let the name fool you - this is more of a tasty IPA than a golden ale

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle into pint glass, hazy golden’ish-amber color, some floaties with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine (lemony) hops, some grass, rye and light caramel. Taste brings out rye spiciness (pepper), biscuity malt and more earth/dank hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, soft, crisp with some lingering citrus bitterness. I feel spring coming drinking this, or maybe its looking out the window watching the snow finally melt on this 60 degree day. Either way nice bright beer.

3.2
lamas (1642) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Packaged: 12/13/13. A hazy amber pour with tons of little floaties and a thin beige head. The crisp aroma features some lemons, citrus rinds, light rye bread, grass, and some caramel. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. A light caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise. A big bready/biscuity middle. Some rye here and there. Lemon and citrus rinds finish things off. A bitter, grassy end. Resiny.
