Founders Red’s Rye P.A.
Serving:
Bottle
Appearance: Half a finger of bone colored head. Hazy and the color of autumn leaves.
Smell: Resinous. Reminiscent of fresh cut soft wood.
Taste: Pine and citrus hops and rye spiciness with a toasted malt backbone. Slight floral aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated with a lingering finish.
Overall: A well balanced brew and no complaints.

Caramel and spicy, peppery rye malts. Moderately hoppy with pine and grapefruit flavors. Well balanced and easy drinking. I think this bottle was fresher than the ones I had in the past.
