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.

Emeister84 (2207) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Aromas of resin, citrus fruit, toast, and candied nuts. Orange, hazy complexion, with an off-white head that is mostly diminishing. Spicy and bitter. Medium bodied, carbonation is average, some cereal (corn) flavor in the finish, and a lingering bitterness afterward. Definitely not a bad beer, though it does contain a corn-like/adjunct flavor that seems off to me.

Bottle from West Side. Pours a clear deep gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Light grainy nose with a touch of grass. Clean and crisp with a balanced but light flavor. Faint rye on the finish. Very much like a blonde ale.

ciocanelu (1617) - 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 (5887) - 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.
