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.

Best rye ale I’ve ever tried. It’s like bread in a glass. Full and delicious!.........

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has a bit of a bite to it, with a lot of citrus hops notes belying a bitter taste. Taste actually isn’t as bitter as the nose would imply, but has some great light citrusy hoppy tastes. Great brew.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Drank in tulip glass poured from 12oz bottle. Aroma- mix between citrus, hops, and rose petals. Glorious. Appearance- beautiful golden orange color. Taste- ahhhh. Heavenly. So smooth yet so much flavor. Very very drinkable. Citrus with a bit of hops. Palate- similiar to taste but the hops come out more here. Overall- brilliant. My favorite spring/summer weather beer ever. I could drink these all day. May not be the biggest or boldest beer ive had but it still remains among my favorites of all time

Citrusy, somewhat tropical aroma, hops. Pours a perfect golden color, cloudy and unfiltered. Great looking beer. Good head and excellent lacing. A mild rye ale, not quite light but just right. Piny hops and a hint of pepperiness. Great taste. One of my favorite seasonals. 6.0% abv is nice, I’m a little buzzed by the two I’ve imbibed tonight. Solid offering from Bells. Should be brewed in the summer though.

Smitten Golden Rye Ale has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold, highly carbonated appearance, with some glass lacing. Aroma is of spiced, white bread, yeast, sourdough, and grass. Taste is of spicy, white bread, sugar, grassy, strong hop bitterness, and some bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium and slick. Smitten finishes dry. RJT
