look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Very small off white head slowly falls into a clear golden bronze colored beer.

Light aroma of mostly the rye with a bit of citrus hops sneaking in.

Light tasting rye aspects even less than the light aroma. Very light on the rye, I guess I know why they call it smooth ryed.

A very light dryish aftertaste with just a bit of the rye taste coming through with this light to medium bodied ale.

Just seems a little to smooth for my beer drinking tastes, I do like the ryeish taste it has I just wish it were more pronounced.

Two fingers of foamy head on a clear, dark amber colored body.
The aroma is bright citrus with the rye coming through strong too. Nice.
The taste is smooth with lots of rye spice. There's a strong bitterness that comes in at the end, which seems out of place.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable.

Poured into a Perfect Pint:

A=Honey colored, slightly cloudy...darker than anticipated...one finger head lasted over a minute.

S=Faint honey and herbal undertones.

T=Whoa...much more bitter than anticipated; quite hoppy...sort of like an IPA with some tang and spice. After it warmed up a bit, it was a bit smoother--slightly creamy and herbal.

M=Rather light carbonation; medium to light body...aftertaste makes it hard to call a session.

O=I am not that familiar with the style and received this as a gift...I don't like the style enough to purchase it, and this beer didn't change my mind...still, if you like IPA's and rye beers, this one would be worth trying.

12oz bottle picked up tonight at the COOP.... Didn't catch the price but probably about $1.70... Poured into my slim tulip... Clear light amber... nice long lasting white head provides good lacing for the entire glass...

Nose is fairly hop forward... citrus with a good backbone of toasty and lesser caramel maltiness... a bit of floral hoppiness with warmth.

Flavor mirrors the nose... I get a little bit of rye as a crispy dry toasted bready note... again plenty of citrus hoppiness... lingers on the palate forever for a lower ABV brew... mouthfeel is lighter side of medium with a good everpresent carbonation.

Pretty solid... Could possibly use a little more rye flavor to help balance out against the bigger hop profile.... but damn tasty and I will certainly buy as long as it is fresh.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance 3.25: Attractive coppery gold color. Completely translucent. Smallish 1/4" head.

Smell 3.50: Good bouquet. Malty, grainy, with a nice warming sensation.

Taste 4.0: Front is slightly sweet with a very brief hint of hops. Middle is thick and malty. Semi-sweet with a slightly dry and spicy twang. Finish also has that pleasant spiciness and showcases a tasty, hoppy, alkaline hint along with very brief flashes of malt and caramel. Aftertaste is short, dry and refreshing.

Mouthfeel 3.75: A bit too bubbly. Less bubbles would have made it feel more like an ale, but this level makes it sort of strange, an in-between kind of beer sensation.

Overall 3.75: Probably the best rye beer I have tasted. It is not perfect by any means, but is good at what it attempts to do: create a refreshing, "seasonal" (the box said that, not me) brew. Sessionable and probably great with food, there is no hint of its 6.3% ABV. A sleeper, a surprise and worth purchasing if you see it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Aroma made up of sweet toasted malt with some herbal notes mixed in as well. Appearance is dynamite. I let my bottle sit out of the fridge for a half hour before pouring. The head was huge and billowy white. Sustained for minutes on end. Body is clear with a reddish gold hue. Almost champagne like bubbles continue to rise from the bottom. Flavor is nicely balanced for this style. A little sweet at first but followed up with a herbal bitter dryness. Rye grain is there but I don't pretend to be an expert at identifying different herbs and grains in beer. If it wasn't named Smooth Ryed, I might not say rye. Nice drinkable body, smooth carbonation. Could drink this year round. Nice all around beer.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: A nice deep amber orange color. A bright white head recedes to a film with a thicker ring around the edges. Good webby lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Rye grains all over, with some slight sourness.

Taste: Excellent. Rye malts bring a dryness at first, with some caramel sweetness soon after. Faint tart notes fill out the back.

Mouthfeel: Slightly dry, but refreshing as well.

Overall: I really like this beer. Clean with lots of character.
