Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2007.
When we think of Redhook and rye, we have very fond memories of Redhook Rye. It was a cloudy mess of an American Hefe-hybrid rye beer that was perhaps the best in their portfolio to date. We suppose a summer seasonal like this one makes more sense when it comes down to paying the bills.
Crystal clear pale-yellow golden color. A hefty pour produces a quick swelling of foam. The head collapses to a very thin ring of white lace. The light, clean aroma has suggestions of dande- lions, dried lemon peel and spicy rye. Good supply of crispness with a semi-thin body; dry malt flavors induce a soft blanket of spicy rye and bread tones. A touch lemony, with a mild hop bitterness brushing a little herbal and grassy flavor on the palate. Clean and dry finish with a lingering lemon and diminished rye flavor.
A good hot-weather beer? Sure, why not? But putting this one up against the many summer seasonals to choose from, Sunrye sits squarely in the middle of the road. Pair it with a slab of pepper jack cheese and some rye crackers.

I had this on tap at a local Irish Pub in Boston ... they served it ice cold which to my surprise it was a little better. The spicy rye and hop jumped out and the crispness held true. Other than that it is still a middle of the road summer brew. After two I was looking for another brew to fill its place.

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light amber with just a trace (almost none) of a white frizzy head that virtually was gone in a second or two and produced no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very faint of a light grain malt, a faint odor of some grassy hops and a mild earthy yeast with a hint of rye and maybe a little citrus (lemon).
Taste was pretty bland yet quite crisp with a slight malty feel and a mild hint of rye, but not much else. The flavor faded from the taste buds almost immediately following the swallow.
Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with a watery texture and a light carbonation.
Overall this was a extremely light beer with a very light flavor and a mild carbonation. That being said it did possess a good smooth and easy drinkability and is ok if what your looking for, is a light beer with a low ABV…
