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.

Bottle at home. Golden pour with a huge fluffy head. The aroma is rye bread, lemon, honey, flowers. Light bodied and easy drinking. Some spicy rye throughout, sweet malts underneath, citrus zest, resinous hops. Very clean crisp finish.

A nice easy drinking pale ale. Aroma is honey and sweetness. Taste is light hop bite with a melon flavor and rye bite. Nice lasting thin head. Nice mouthfeel.

Draft at Ground Control. Yes, it’s golden (with a hazy tilt). Yes, it carries a rye character (gritty, earthy). It’s without technical flaw. In the end, I found this a pleasant but not different summer sipper. (#6117, 2/12/2016)

Clear and golden in color with a thick white head. Thick, sticky lacing. Spicy rye, grassy, with lemons. Heavy bitterness. Good beer but hard to drink a lot of it.

Love the nose on this beer. You can almost smell that rye spiciness. Malt flavors meld well with the rye, and the hops synergize well. Bit too bitter, but very enjoyable none the less.

alktrio (9) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2016 does not count
Nice and dry. Good spicy notes and little grassiness. Too thin but drinks easily. Good with food.

3.7
Dorkenstein (556) - - FEB 2, 2016
Honeydew melon and cracker aromas. Taste is cantaloupe and honeydew melons, then pepper rye crackers; finally an astringent finish.

On tap at Fieldhouse. Strong rye taste and aroma. Golden color as one would guess.
