Poured into a pint glass. Bottom of can says best before 27APR2013.

A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a full three fingers worth of tan head due to a heavy pour. Retention is good and long displaying nice craggy bumps in the foam. Eventually it works its way down to an 1/8 inch bumpy head. Lacing is slippery and minimal.

S- Very sweet cereal grain sweetness from the malt meets spicy, pungent notes from the rye. Mild but fresh hop aroma.

T- More hoppy in the flavor and is somewhat metallic in its bitterness but works with the rye malt well. More of that cereal grain sweetness but it's a bit muted by the strength of the rye and hops. Smooth all the same with little alcohol taste detected.

M- Semi-watery with the malt body being the only thing giving it any viscosity. Medium carbonation.

O- Very drinkable and enjoyable. I gotta have my rye!

16 oz. Tallboy. Freshness date on bottom.

A: Pours a medium to deep amber with a bubble filled off white head.
Turns thin but retains this for the long run. Watery lacing.

S: Creamy and sour, herbal hops, spicy with some bready notes. The rye
is noticeable.

T/M: Spicy and sour with a moderate amount of dry hops. Fruits, chewy
malts, spices, hops, and sour again. Smooth and a little tangy. The finish
is somewhat sour.

Overall: I am not that familiar with the Rye Ales. But from what I have read,
this Righteous Ale seems to taste like the descriptions of the style. So for
me the great drinkablilty and interesting taste (not too Sour) makes for a
good beer.

Cheers!!

Very good beer. Nice aroma from the hops, and the hops predominate at first. As the beer warms, the sweetness of the rye develops. Clean and crisp throughout. A very drinkable beer for all seasons and most occasions.i have not had a beer from six point that I have not liked.

Poured a clearish aubunr red brown with a good head and lace on top of a very malty aroma of bread, barley, rye, some caramel malt, as well as a smidge of citric hops. Medium-bodied with great balance, the rye makes this beer slick and easy to drink. The hop flavors are minimal but they get the job done and there is some sweetness from the caramel as well. Mostly though, a robust and sturdy beer that the malts make it a tasty, crisp beer with good finish.
