Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-06-2013

This Amber ale was brewed with Rye and four American hop varieties. Starting malty with a bit of spice, this beer finishes with a dry hop bite. The rye imparts an earthy quality to the first sip, balanced by a sweetness from the malt. All of the hop additions were carefully selected to give it first a heavy herbal aroma, followed by a fruity, spicy flavor with moderate bitterness.

Sweet malt and pleasant herbal-pine hops so nicely balanced. Dark rusty mahogany color with a sturdy cream colored head and nice lacing. The aroma focuses on the malty backbone, sweet but subtle. The hops come out in the flavor but remain subdued and the medium-plus body delivers a luscious, frothy feel. Much better than your average amber/red ale.

Bottle. Poured a ruddy brown color. Not much head. Cloudy with particulate. Aroma was mostly malty and quite fruity. Almost like a strawberry preserve scent. The flavor was mushed up strawberry jam. I really tasted a bunch of berry jam. I didn't really enjoy that. I did not pick up much character from the rye. The overly sweet, fruity element to this beer turned me off. Medium bodied with a lasting aftertaste. One bottle of this was enough.
