BEER INFO

Lakewood Brewing Company
Texas, United States

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Named for White Rock Lake and the cyclists who loop it, Rock Ryder is a refreshing, crowd-pleasing, session beer. But just because it's easy drinking doesn't mean it's got training wheels. With peppery notes from rye malt, a citrusy aroma and dry finish, our American Rye Wheat pulls ahead of the pack. And we're proud to donate a portion of the proceeds of Rock Ryder to For The Love of the Lake, a community organization that volunteers their time keeping our little oasis in the city sparkling. So sit back and enjoy the Ryde.

Got this on sale at Walgreens for $4.49 a six pack. Tried one and went back for more. Nice hop taste similar to Texas Pils. Good session beer, a bit milder than Texas Pils nice lighter finish. Goes good with food. A great bargain!

Yellowish in color and with a head of foam that doesn’t quit, Rock Ryder impresses out of the gate. The nose on this beer is one of rye, wheat, cereal, and some citrus. The lovely head of foam coats your glass all the way to the final sip.

Lakewood Rock Ryder has an agreeable flavor profile that meshes together rye, wheat, and barley malt with some underlying fruit. There is a biscuit- like goodness to the taste and a lemony character that adds refreshment. There isn’t any harsh edge like with some rye beers. This one is quite sessionable and would make a good beer on a warm summer day.

Rye isn’t a flavor compatible to every palate, but I find it good in my beer if done right. Lakewood Brewing company seems to have the right balance with this beer. The malts, the fruit, and other flavors seem to match up quite nicely. The rye isn’t overdone and the sweet and bitter components seem balanced. I recommend it for fans of rye beer and others who want a more drinkable session beer.
