Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We are excited to announce our latest year round- Schell’s Emerald Rye! Schell’s Emerald Rye is assertively hopped (hopped again, and again, and again, and then dry hopped) to impart a firm, dry bitterness and features the uniquely fruity, hoppy aroma of the German Emerald hop. With 60 IBU’s this lager rivals that of an IPA, but unlike an IPA we lagered it, giving this beer a crisp, smooth, clean finish on your palate. A biscuity malt foundation gives it balance and a luxurious, deep ruby color. A hint of rye enhances the subtle spiciness of the Emerald hop and complements the delicate notes of lemon and orange marmalade within the aroma. The rye also adds a layer of spicy complexity that leaves you wanting more.

60 IBU

Reviewing as a rye beer based on the brewers notes

Rigorous pound me hard pour producing a 3 inches (what I could do with three inches) of head, Off white color.
Thick fingers of lace up top and a coating below.
Across the pond leaving a few large bubble islands.
Color is eleganteh, that's Spanish for elegant. Ron Burgundy in color, dark, mysterious and tall, probably having some money in an off shore account.
A swirl of the glass brings that Vienna malt forward and a toasted pumpernickel with a dry hopped hay likeness, as well as some roasted grains.
An ever faint dark fruit aroma too.
Mouthfeel is bodacious kowabunga. Slick, creamy and full bodied. Loving it. mash temp or rye? Not sure which but gave some nice body to Mr. body's body.
Flavors of toasted grains, mild rye spiciness and a little sourdough yeast flavor. Crisp lagared flavor, not at all fruity and drying through the finish.
This is an assertive full flavored full bodied brew. Loving it.

Big light brown/tan head slowly falls above a clear reddish amber colored beer.

Rye accented by bready malts and light spices with maybe some light citrus sneaking in the aroma of the Schell's offering.

Rye outweighs the light spices and light bready malts in the taste of this rye beer that seems to have a hint of citrusy hops sticking around.

A dryish aftertaste with much of the beers taste sticking around with this light to medium bodied beer.

A pretty smooth rye beer, just a touch on the light side of my desired rye taste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Color is a copper amber. Off white tan head with nice retention.

Flavors are rye and spice. Bready malts. A decent amount of pine hops. Some floral. An orange citrus flavor.

Mouthfeel: A bit bitter, but fairly clean. Light to medium bodied. Ends a little sticky.

Overall, a really enjoyable rye beer. Easy to drink and can have in multiples.
