The rye provides a flavorful adjustment to the traditional malt. It is really yummy and deserves a higher rating in my opinion.

good head and lacing. Sweet smell. Just the right touch of bitter going down followed by a sweet aftertaste. Citrus taste, followed by the slight bitter and finishes with a very pleasant taste in the mouth...she's a keeeper

12 oz bottle. Best by the first week of December 2015. Poured into a snifter (i know it's not the right glassware). Hazy orange with a one inch bubbly head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Smell is spicy pepper, malt, caramel, little citrus. Taste follows. Easy drinking enjoyable rye pale ale. Nothing too fancy. Cheers!

Love Terrapin Rye Pale. Great color and taste. Had my first one at the Masters this year and if you have walked Augusta National in the Georgia heat you can work up a pretty good thirst and had this over lunch and it was very refreshing and a pleasant surprise.
