@ Deep River
Nice chestnut color, but unfortunately no head to speak of. Sweet caramel and rye bread with leafy, floral hops, and a smooth fruitiness. Spicy, malty flavor with plenty of hop bitterness. Lots of rye and a bit of citrus rind and earthy hops. Smooth, medium body. Pretty good overall...a solid showcase for rye.

Growler. Pours a clear brown color with effectively no head on it. Nose has a strong rye element with a deep citrusy bitterness in there. Taste has the citrusy sour in there, but that dominates without being what I’d expect from an APA or IPA. The rye dominates without the balance from other ingredients. Not a huge fan.

3.6/5 rDev +2%
A: Pours a very lightly hazy deep copper in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible and some garnet red + orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted bready malts with moderate amounts of rye spiciness and some light to moderate caramel sweetness. There are light to moderate aromas of spicy and herbal hops with a light hint of citrus/grapefruit pith.
T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted bready malts with a moderate to strong amount of rye spiciness and just a hint of caramel sweetness. There are light to moderate flavors of earthy, spicy, and citrus/grapefruit pith hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades relatively quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Nice heavy dose of rye in this beer which adds some wonderful spicy notes to the smell and taste. Enjoyable and definitely worth grabbing again.

Pours a reddish-amber with a creamy off-white head that reduces to a skim of clotted foam. Decent lacing.
Aroma is fresh and grassy. Taste is solidly spicy rye with big piney/herbal hop bite. Mouthfeel is good,not thin, and carbonation is strong and prickly. If you like rye ales, this is a pretty good example.

Poured into a pint glass
A: This one pours a deep rye red with a one finger head. It leaves some nice lacing on the drink down.
S: Has a nice malty aroma
T: This is the difficult one as it is so subjective. I tried the first one without giving it time to reach a nice temperature and it was a bit warm. The second one, on a different day, was nicer as it had time to reach a cooler temperature. It does give you that rye spiciness so if that is what you are looking for this one delivers it. If you are not a fan of rye you will want to avoid this brew.
M: Medium bodied.
O: This one is on my repeat list. It may not match up to Red's Rye but it is an NC local that deserves some support.
