Small head that fades quickly. A lot of sediment in this one(which may be improved by decanting). Nose is of citrus and rye. Taste is hoppy bitter and very good. Citrus flavors and pine with very little maltiness. Doghair (464) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Nice dark yellow with a lot of stuff flossing in it. Thick white foam. I get hops, rye and citrus in the aroma. I really enjoy the hoppy citrus rye flavor. Basically a good pale ale with the rye addition. Good beer. Patrickctenchi (6806) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours hazy, floatie-filled amber gold with a tall, off-white head.
Aroma of rye...oranges.
Taste is orange peel, rye malt.
Quite nice. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Draft at MacKenzie in Minneapolis. Pours a hazy, golden amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is malty, bready, cereal. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, nutty, toast, earthy, some rye, some bitter pine hops, with a bitter, earthy finish. Different, but good. TheBear11D (365) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2013
The smitten rye pours golden orange yellow with a decent off white head that leaves some lacing. The smell is hops and rye. The flavor is rye with some citrus hops and a hint of malt. Overall this is a decent beer

Light in the glass with a hearty palate, the rye in this beer sings. It is lightly presented, and carries the orange and lemon notes of the hops to perfection. Pine finish, lots of rustic bread flavors and aromas. Nice, nice example of the use of a specialty grain that is seldom given such a fine treatment by the brewers using it today.

12 oz. bottle. Pale, hazy gold with a small, offwhite head. The aroma is honey, apples, rye bread, and hard cheese. The flavor is sharp bitterness up front, with a fading metallic twang through the finish. Light to medium body, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is a good pale ale, but the flavor is slightly off. Not bad, though. BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours light orange with a slight citrus aroma. Some hops in the body but finishes very light.

Light golden color with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is pine hops with just a hint of rye. Flavor is a little one note. Strong hops with a bit of rye. Not much malt to balance, makes the finish a bit thin. It’s a little average overall. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2013
This poured a darker golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was definite rye, citrus hops and pale malt. Flavor was spicey and earthy, lightly bitter with a clean finish. Decent for the style.
