Yellowish in color and with a head of foam that doesn’t quit, Rock Ryder impresses out of the gate. The nose on this beer is one of rye, wheat, cereal, and some citrus. The lovely head of foam coats your glass all the way to the final sip.

Lakewood Rock Ryder has an agreeable flavor profile that meshes together rye, wheat, and barley malt with some underlying fruit. There is a biscuit- like goodness to the taste and a lemony character that adds refreshment. There isn’t any harsh edge like with some rye beers. This one is quite sessionable and would make a good beer on a warm summer day.

Rye isn’t a flavor compatible to every palate, but I find it good in my beer if done right. Lakewood Brewing company seems to have the right balance with this beer. The malts, the fruit, and other flavors seem to match up quite nicely. The rye isn’t overdone and the sweet and bitter components seem balanced. I recommend it for fans of rye beer and others who want a more drinkable session beer.

On tap at Goodfriend. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of biscuit malt, as well as some rye and caraway. The flavor is more of the same. The rye is quite strong, as is some lighter orange citrus and lemon notes. I also get some yeast and biscuit malt notes in the flavor. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a pale gold with a large frothy head. The aroma is very faint, with a few notes of floral hops and some grainy malt. Much more flavorful to taste, with a goodly lightly caramel malt up front, sweet, and moderate bitterness. I don't detect a lot of rye in this beer, but the malt does have a crackery component that might be the rye. Yeast character is pretty neutral.

Not too bad, but this doesn't really stand out in any way.
