Smitten Golden Rye AleSmitten Golden Rye Ale
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Drawn from one of our oldest recipes, Smitten Ale began as part of a series of rye beers at our Eccentric Café. The combination of sharp citrus & resinous flavors from the hops with the earthy, rustic overtones of the rye malt contribution yield an interesting take on the American Pale Ale.

Some lighter malts on the nose, spice, light fruit – almost grape, light, some alcohol warming, medium to a little more on the carbonation, brilliant straw color.

Not bad, had this on one of the last few warm days of summer. Poured out of the bottle into a pint glass. Clean golden ale with a nice spice from the rye. Usually I prefer rye in a pale or IPA, but this worked. Nice yellowish color, completely clear with a little head. Not bad.
