On tap at Victory. Served in a sample glass. Pours a somewhat-deep amber color. Nose has very nice rye spice with a firm background of hop bitterness. Some bready malt. Touch of caramel. Uber drinkable.

On tap at Victory. Pours a nearly mahogany with a small head that settles fairly quickly. Nice lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma leads with toasted bread and caramel malt, followed by light floral hoppiness and a vague spicy note.

Flavor follows the nose closely; there's a gentle roastiness to the malt, a suggestion of toasted bread, and some caramel sweetness; floral hops emerge in the finish, which is nicely crisp and dry, and the rye while subtle adds a touch of spiciness in the end. Overall bitterness is present but restrained. Simple and satisfying flavor.

The body is just on the lighter side of medium and the carbonation is medium-high, resulting in a crisp and clean feel that's fairly refreshing. A tasty easy drinker that's pleasing enough but isn't exceptionally distinctive or memorable. Good session material, though.

On tap @ the Victory Brewing Company (Downingtown, PA) on 9/2/12. Served in a ½ pint glass.

Pours black, with more and more of a clear ruby hue coming out as you progress down the glass, and is topped with a ½ finger of rich light mocha colored head. This maintains a thin frothiness that coats the sides of the glass with sticky lacing. The aroma smells of rye, chocolate, caramel, coffee, and ripe citrus. There is a pervasive spiciness here to the nose from that combination of rye and Kölsch yeast.

The taste has a firm citrus bitterness that works well with the doughy dry spiciness of the rye. Cocoa and caramel add some balancing sweetness to this, while roasted coffee flavor along the back adds a bit of an acrid component to this. This is dry and bitter on the finish with a touch of lingering spicy rye. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a bubbly crispness that flows pretty easily in the mouth. That 5% ABV feels just about right here.

This was a pretty tasty little Ale, with a nice mix of rye, sweetness, hops and roast, while that Kölsch yeast lent this an extra touch of fruit and spicy crispness. I’d love to see this here on cask sometime. It was quite good.

Mild Rye'd
Victory Brewing Company
Style: Rye Beer
ABV: 5.10 %

LOOK: Dark brown beer, mostly clear, with a slight off white head. Leaves plenty of lace down the glass, and overall, a very nice looking brew.

SMELL: Brown sugar, nutty malts, cocoa, a touch of raw grain, and a hint of floral hops.

TASTE: Nutty malts upfront with faint notes of cocoa and coffee. There is a mild rye spice to the beer that comes through a bit twangy and alittle peppery. Mild bitterness shows up as well, but mostly nutty and chocolatey with a small but noticeable presence of rye.

FEEL: Medium bodied, smooth, creamy, and satisfying. A drinkers beer.

OVERALL: A really nice mild type ale with some rye. I'm a big fan of this, and I am sure this would also be fantastic on cask or firkin as well.

Impressive starting head which the bartender had to pour off.eaves w blanket of lace. Dark ruby brown where only sunlight passes.

Smells of black patent malt and buttering hop.

Thinnish bodied like the lager it is. Lots of carbonation. Starts with darker malts--slightly burnt and a touch of sourness. The aftertaste is hop-bitter even though I didn't taste it.

T- Follows the nose, tastes much lighter than it looks, medium body. Some light herbal/earthy hops and dark fruit on the end as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A surprising and tasty mild, with a range of interesting malt flavors

Pours a dark brown with mild copper highlights, thin cap of off-white to tan head. Scent brings a blend of toasted bread, light citrus, rye spiciness, light fruitiness. Taste fairly reflects scent, rye spice, dark toasted bread, some citrus and light apple. Dry on the palate, medium bodied. Solid, session-able ale, better ryes out there.

Pours a deep amber to brown in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, a mellow green apple ryeness. In the taste, a dry rye presence, with a sweet green apple fruitiness in the end. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, and a small dry rye and note of fruit in the aftertaste. Good flavor for a mild, with a nice rye presence, although, I think a touch more hops would make it super.
