I have nothing bad to say about this beer. After pouring from bottle to glass it looked beautiful and rich and smelled powerfully good. There was plenty of good flavor and a fantastic after taste. I could easily drink this beer all night and not get sick of it or have any desire to switch it up. This beer cannot be recommended enough!

Red's Rye pours a clear, dark copper color with a small off white head. As the foam disappears it leaves behind a fair amount of lace on the glass.

The aroma is bready with notes of rye and orange citrus. A touch of spice and a little caramel is also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor is sweet with a hoppy finish. It starts with bread and spicy rye flavors along with some caramel malt. It finishes moderately bitter with notes of orange citrus. Once gone the rye spice and citrus lingers on the palate.

A nicely balanced beer that's not over powered with the rye. Easy drinking and would go great with a steak.
