"Gramarye (GRAM-uh-ree)

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.
