Medium body, moderate bitterness, copper color, made with 34% malted rye. A rarity at brew pubs, this fabled 'rye' beer is credited with being one of the oldest recipes in existence. Brewed with crystal malt and both Chinook and Hallertau hops, this copper-colored brew offers a complex range of contrasting flavors.

On tap at Red Rock, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light grainy notes and a touch of earth. Flavour brings out light earthy notes and a touch of rye. Light and unassuming, with barely any rye presence. Rather lame.

appearance: clear deep amber gold, with a short, fizzy, bright white head. aroma: assertive, peppery nose with some grassy and floral hop notes over toasted rye bread. taste: grainy, with crushed black pepper, lemon verbena, toasted rye, a hint of caramel, with a nice spicy undercurrent. finish: active carbonation, mouthfeel is very bright and zippy, lingering light spice and a little citrus. notes: Maybe the best beer I had in the SLC. This was really, really enjoyable. Excellent character. Draught at Red Rock in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Light aroma: Citrus fruit, bready. Biscuit, sweet malt flavor, fruity, and peppery spice that gets stronger in the finish (assuming it’s from the rye?)

Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Draft flight 9/02-Pours a clear copper body with a small head. Aroma of malt, rye, and grains. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced.

Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Had on draft at the downtown location. This is a rich malty beer. The ABV is surprising since it has such a full mouth feel. A bit rye spicy and oily. Nice beer.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
Pours a hazy brownish amber color. Aromas of grains, banana, fruit, and alcohol. Flavor is orangish and spice with a bittersweet finish. Good beer, just not something I would have often

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at Red Rock brewpub. Pours light amber with off-white head. Nose has light caramel and miscellaneous grains. Rye comes through on the palate, although it has a rather thin body and soda-like characteristic - the carbonation just doesn’t seem right. Seems artificially sweet also. Quite watery and drinkable.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Smells of mild hops and rye. Light, mild hop bitterness in the taste. This amber pour has a crisp metallic finish.
