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.

weihenweizen (3431) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle through trade with JStax poured into a shaker. Pours translucent deep golden with a lot of suspended yeast and small white head. Medium small bubble lacing, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and nice citrus aroma. Taste is bitter citrus, some earth, and resinous hop finish. Not for me.

12oz bottle. Golden orange color. Aroma of citrus blossoms, hops, and spicy grains. Tastes like an American Pale Ale. Nice caramel grains, citrusy hops, hint of rye tingle on the tongue. Finishes with a sharp bitterness. A very nice APA. (3671)

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2013
On draft @ Bells. Pours a light orange with white head. Aroma is citrus hops. The rye really stands out in this one, mixed in with some citrus and bitterness. A pretty easy drinking brew.

jhliesen (831) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle--cloudy gold color with a medium head that dissipates into lacing on the side of the glass. Citrus, flowers and hops hit the nose as soon as the pour is finished. Some bitterness in the beginning from the hops, then some sweetness takes over. Medium bitter finish with a hop aftertaste. Produce place.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2013
Hazy orange-gold pour with a 2 finger, super creamy off white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of citrus, cereal, earthy grain, pine and floury grain. Flavor is all toast and biscuit up fron, then some pine, earthy, spicy grain, tart citrus, fruity esters, an odd sweet grain that tastes oddly like sorghum, light nutty notes and bready yeast. Medium body, creamy to chalky feel and light, but blanketing and rather sharp carbonation. Pretty tasty, though pretty strange, lots of odd malt stuff going on here.

ddemmingjr (798) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle- pours pale orange, thick khaki head. Lots of yeast floating about and carbonation as well. Nose is subdued, a little pine, rye, lemon citrus an dough. Soft on the palate, with dough, bread yeast, grain and citrus hop bitterness. Balanced with lingering finish. Kind of a pilsener/rye session beer as opposed to an IPA but still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
