BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rising Tide Brewing Company
Maine, United States
risingtidebrewing.com

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, honey gold coloring with a foamy, low profile, bubbly, white head. Aromas of spicy rye grains forward, with grassy and slightly bitter hops, citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit, and a subtle cracker backbone. Flavors are toasted grains and tropical fruits forward, with a blend of pineapple, melon, and mango noticeable. Some lemon grass, pepper, and pine tassel notes, too. The body is light and effervesced, with a short lived peppery and tropical aftertaste. The finish is slightly dry, smooth, and crisp.

Had this on tap. Clear, light yellow in color and resembles a lager. Mildly citrus like in aroma with a mild citrus like taste to it. Somewhat watery mouthfeel, with a slight bitter/hoppy presence to it. Very Crisp and refreshing. Perfect summer beer!!

12 oz. bottle poured into a house pint.

Appearance: Pours a hazy dark straw with a big pillowy, foamy white head that almost looks like cake icing and sticks around with good retention. Nice lacing on the way down.

Aroma: Smells of rye toast, crackers, and some hop bitterness.

Taste: Nice balance of spiciness from the rye and fruity flavor from the hops. Solid malt backbone, too. Really good beer to pair with pizza.

Mouthfeel: Easy on the palate. A little less than medium depth I'd say.

Overall: Very nice session ale from Rising Tide. Way more interesting than your average blonde/pale ale. I love a good rye beer and this is one.
