Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Chart a new course with Daymark as your guide. We start with a classic, clean and crisp American pale ale brewed with spicy Columbus and Centennial hops. Then we accent the grain bill with rye grown on small local family farms right here in Maine and malted to our specifications at Valley Malts, an artisanal malt house. Finally we dry hop the finished beer for a bright floral aroma.

A: Pours into tulip a clear straw color with a foamy white head that settles nicely.
S: Lemon zest, grassy and herbal hop notes and a dry cracker malt base with spicy rye notes.
T: Dry bread, light spice from rye and bittering hops. Grassy and light lemon zest to add a tartness. Some floral hops notes too. More malt comes through to give a touch of sweetness.
M: Crisp light body and prickly carbonation. Slightly dry finish. No alcohol warming.
O: Different take on an APA but with a good recipe this one comes off clean and refreshing so a job well done. Paired well with bbq pulled pork!

On tap at Ri Ra Irish Pub in Portland, ME.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow, with a small quarter inch head,

Smells like grapefruit, bright orange, pine, and spicy grassy hop aromas.

I'm not sure if I would have been able to identify this as having rye in it. I didn't know when I ordered it, for sure. There's a nice clean juiciness to it, with a bitter clean pine thing going on underneath it. It seems a little simple, but it's still tasty.

This is lighter bodied, very crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

Very drinkable- I could imagine drinking a good amount of this and not getting fatigued with it. Nice stuff.

Lovely fruity nose - just springs out of the bottle. Faint rye spice, and a warming, biscuity malt - a nice, gently sticky swallow. This is a really nice beer, far more APA than rye, just-so green and grain bitterness.

Nicely balanced APA.
Poured from grocery store purchased 12oz bottler to snifter.
Deep gold color, slight haze. Head fades but substantial lacing.
Earthy fruity smell with and undercurrent of malt.
Taste is a very nice APA, fruity, a touch of bitterness, an noticeable toasted grains, but nothing overpowers.
Pleasant feel.
One of the better widely available Portland on the right coast locals.
