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.

You get your hoppiness youíd expect from a pale ale and a nice sweetness youíd look for in a summer beer. The hoppiness dominates, but itís very smooth overall and is a nice beer to sip slowly. All in all, good stuff.

Itís probably a bit premature to drink Spring beer while Nebraska is still in the grip of snow and ice, but what the hell? Smitten pairs spicy rye malt with hops, and itís a combination that I have a weakness for. Earthy, grassy, and lightly peppery flavors blend with lemony hops. Finish is bright, clean, and refreshing. Smitten showcases the best of rye and hop flavors without the tinge of soapiness that can sometimes show up in these types of beer. Lovely stuff.

On draft at Pazzoís. Aroma seemed to randomly switch between nothing but rye and heavy hops. It just never came together for me.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2017 2017 fresh batch re-rate: On tap at Mellow. Good floral nose with some citrus and grain. Clean and crisp with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Peppery rye in the finish. Simple, but well-balanced and refreshing.

ciocanelu (2054) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 1, 2016
Slightly hazy, dark golden color with slightly off-white foam. Aroma is quite malty but there is also a nice, citrusy hoppiness and some caramel. Taste is also malty with a caramel hint, slightly spicy and finishes with bitter grapefruit and earthy hop notes. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it"s a good pale ale with a classic hop profile and slightly spicy rye malt.

thedm (6051) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was a hoppy rye. The crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of rye and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
