3.8/5 rDev -0.5%
Tasted at brewery and again from growler poured into pint glass
A - Beautiful copper/orange with a slender beige head
S - Very shy on the nose - some citrus, toasty malt and some other spices which I assume is the rye. The nose did open up slightly after warming up some but still was subdued.
T - Toasty malt and rye right off the bat followed up with some soft bitter hops.
M - Such a refreshing beer! There really is a a lot of flavor packed into this 4.4% brew. Toasty malts and rye, smooth and clean with just a touch of crisp/bitterness from the hops that makes you want another sip, followed by another...etc.
O - This is my first taste of a rye beer and I was impressed. This is a great "lawn mower" beer - easy to drink with plenty of flavor. Very refreshing.

Pours rich copper with a fading head.
Nose shows lots of malt with bready characters and some spicy, toasty rye. Lovely. Also some soft earthy hops.
Very similar flavours, with powerful toasty and spicy rye alongside a spicy, earthy hop hit. Great length.
Nice moderate carbonation.

Picked up at the COOP Sunday night... poured into my slip tulip tonight... the brew is very clear orange/amber... decent white head... 1/2" head.. spotty lacing.
Nose is very promising.. toasty malt... rye is there and my buddies will give me shit, but honestly a bit of a dry "spicy" note... very dry brew with a bunch of malty background essence.. no real "caramel"... very malt centric with just enough citrus to balance.
Flavor mirrors the nose with some dry toasty elements.. citrus hops... the rye is present and helps to add some structure to the maltiness... rye malt is above present and the citric hops finish forever.... with warmth, a bit of perfumy floral hoppiness...
Surprised this one has a great finish for such a low ABV.. very VERY drinkable.. Loving it.

From the Brewery Website:
Gramarye is the practice of learning magic. For thousands of years, people have used a grimoire (book of magic) to cast spells and summon spirits. Of course, magic fell out of favor over the centuries, the same as brewing with rye. Interest in magic seems to be on the upswing these days and so is the interest in brewing with rye. A coincidence? This is our take on session pale ale made with a dose of rye malt to give it that luscious feel and snappy finish. We think it is magical.
Dark amber colored beer with a small white colored head. The color borders on being brown.
Smell is rye with that slightly sour scent that rye has. Mild hops that are mostly citrus with an little pine to it. Toasted bread, tea and some woody scent.
Starts out dry with a mostly woody flavor and a slight rye after taste. Dry and slightly bitter this is a solid pale ale. Rye flavor is there and very user friendly.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a good pale ale made with Rye. No faults, a good easy drinking ale.

Purchased at Mission Liquors, Fremont, CA
App- In the glass this poured out more like a deeper sunset orange like an IPA vs. a pale ale. Was very deep like a wood stain. Had a big and frothy 2 finger head with some good cling. Head did fade rather quickly though.
Smell- This was very light. I can imagine why at only being a session pale with tinges of rye. It was there but just needed more. A bit of caramel malts with a spicy rye and a little bit of the bitter from the hops. Clean.
Taste- A very nice small session beer. A lot of flavor packed into a little beer. The rye was a nice addition to a pleasant small hoppy beer with some good flavors. It did have just a bit of dish soap flavor behind it, but was okay. Didnt affect it too much.
Mouth- A thicker medium for a small session beer. A little too thick. It was okay on the feel. Taste made up for it. The carbonation is a good medium with some slick malts and a bit of a lush rye flavor. Residual bitter hop/rye combo.
Drink- A nice beer. I like rye and have been looking for new rye beers when I can. This was a good beer to unwind on a Sunday with.
