COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A uniquely complex and flavorful amber ale. French oak and rye malt lend to a well-rounded body with delicate undertones of toasted bread, spice, and subtle vanilla. We set out to show a new light onto the amber style with this beer, and to reclaim it back from the ordinary. Easy to drink with friends at the pub, or just as good as a companion contemplating the stars, Reclaimed Rye is a collection of familiar voices singing a new harmony.

Good idea, but the rye and oak come off so slight as to be afterthoughts. Toasted malt sweetness with bready undertones. Slight vanilla notes from the oak, with a hop-free bland finish. Pretty big disappointment.

Draught at Brick Store. Very dark and rich orange pour with rye and spice and hops. Nice.

Draft. Medium off-white head atop hazy dark amber body, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, some rye, light bread, earthy. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some orange/earthy, light rye. Light-medium body, light stickiness.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2017 On tap at the brewpub in Athens. Clear deep amber body with a fine and durable beige head. Medium-full body with excellent, soft carbonation. Light use of rye and oak with only subtle influences from each (way better than errng in the other direction). Very easy drinking. Mildly bitter.

I must love the taste of this rye ale. It has character and feels good on the tongue.

From a crowler. Bronze, with a nice white head. Smells bready, lightly spicy, with some pine. Taste is raisin toast and pine and a hint of molasses. Some woody, resiny hops, as well. Nice easy drinker.

4/2/16. Sampled during the BHB 4th Anniversary Bash. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Light malty aroma, some caramel and light spice, bread. Good flavor, caramel, bready, light spice, crackers, doughy. Not bad.

At BHB Depot Fest...pretty good amber. Bready, sweet, but with good rye spice and some oakiness. Drinkable and a nice departure.

On tap at The Pig and the Pint in College Park, GA. Clear chestnut pour with very small white head. Subdued aroma and taste of toffee and bread. Nearly dry but with a lingering sweetness. Nice medium mouthfeel. Gets better through the glass, in the same way their Tropicalia IPA does.
