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.

Draft. Pours clear light amber. Medium creamy tan head. Hoppy, fruity, sweet. Citrus. Orange. Touch of grapefruit. Great rye character. Toasty beneath. Malt to balance. Full to medium creamy body. Moderate bitterness. Perfect rye spiciness. Solid Sweetness to balance. Great balance. Just a good beer. Well made. Very drinkable. I really enjoyed this..

On tap at Fraser's. Courtesy of Erica! The pour is a a foggy amberish gold with a nice filmy head and gorgeous lace. The aroma it a little bready, backed up with a nice hop punch, and a light bitterness that rounds out nicely on the nose. The flavor is solid. It's got a bitterness that tends to move to a sweet note, but comes back, with a flow through. The mouth feel is decently thin, but creamy at one point with a lovely lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Drakeís / Florence KY Clear medium amber with a 1" head that slowly drops; curtains of lace. Taste is sweet malt with an edge that adds citrus hops early in the palate. A little malt creeps in again in the finish. Not a lot happening here, but it is easy to drink. Good food beer, light enough to session.

Donít think I am smitten by this one. Bells is one of my favorite breweryís and while this is not a bad beer this is the one variety that they carry that I canít see myself making a repeat purchase. Very rare for them. Tastes like a slightly watered down Midwestern pale ale with a dash of hops. A rare "miss" for the boys from Bells.

A light beer with a medium color. Starts with a bitter taste but finishes smoothly. Not bad.

12 oz bottle as a gift from Joe --- thanks! Immediate dryness and a parching effect on the mouth and tongue. Tastes of lemonade and cactus. i liked it despite the tartness.

This pours a clear, light yellow color with a slight carbonated head. The aroma is full of rye and grain scents. The taste is full of rye and has a dry finish. There are lots of earthy tones that make this a fairly easy drinking beer. Interesting and very well made.

Golden color with a white foam head. Has a very light citrus aroma. Taste is mild hops and mild sweetness. Everything about the beer is mild. Not bad, but nothing really stands out.

This beer is a hazy orangeish golden color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends rye and floral hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, which is a nice balance not often seen in a rye beer, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation with a bite, and a long finish.

One of bells less inspiring offerings. Nice citrus and hop taste but nothing that makes iy stick out either.
