Reclaimed RyeReclaimed Rye
Notes: A uniquely complex and full-flavored amber ale. Our French oak aging process combined with malted and flaked rye delivers a well-rounded body, laced with undertones of toasted bread, spice, and subtle vanilla.

Gorgeous rich, copper color with a smidge of haze and creamy light tan head that laces the glass nicely. Absolutely beautiful amber ale. The nose is caramel and bread.

The taste has the caramel and bread flavors, but there’s an almost smoky thing going on that I’m wondering if it’s the rye. It’s good, I just wish there was more of it, because that would provide a little more “ooomph” to this flavorful amber.

The mouthfeel is medium and a bit creamy. I’d love to drink this beer really fresh sitting around a campfire on a chilly October evening, because I think it would be PERFECT in that setting.

Just like another review, tired of ipa day after day. Malt and wintergreen on the nose. Great mouth feel. And just a really nice beer

Amber brown filtered with 3 fingers of frothy beige head.

Smells of toasted malt with thing of wintergreen.

Tastes of caramel, toffee, a hint of tartness and cocoa.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Getting tired of IPAs, so bought this. Poured from a can to a shaker glass. Color is a dark amber, and the head was good. Smells a little sweet to me, but everything smells sweet to me. Definitely malty, but the Rye and barrel aging help a lot. Not a poor choice for a brown ale, I would recommend this as an option, when you can't make up your mind.

Medium brown body, a bit hazy; nice thick head, creamy and sticky. Heavy sweet aroma, not cloying; malty and a bit nutty. Taste also follows the aroma; buttery and a note of brown sugar; decent bitterness. Heavy body yet a tad watery; dull warmth.

This beer comes across as an okay amber. It really doesn't do much as far as exhibiting rye notes (e.g., grain spiciness). It looks and smells great but the other areas descend quickly into the mundane range of things. Not bad, not memorable.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Clear amber. Fluffy off-white head with good retention
Aroma: Toasty, bready and woody plus mild citrus note.
Flavor & aftertaste: Malty, sweet, Spicy and woody. Mild bitterness.
Palate: Low carbonation. Semi-dry. Long finish, but bitterness is not offensive.

Made from Pilsner, Rye, Munich, CaraMunich II, Carafa Special III, and rice hulls; this beer has mounds of malt complexity. Rye malt provides a nice rounding out to the body and spiciness. Not too sweet. You can detect the oak wood aging in both the aroma and the taste. Hops are Chinook, Styrian Golding, and Crystal; which provide a mild citrus note as well as a mild bitterness. This is a nice spin on an amber ale. It has become a favorite everyday beer for me.

My brother who lives in Atlanta gave me a 6 pack of beers from local breweries from Georgia. I always like trying beer from other small, regional craft breweries who's stuff doesn't get distributed where I live, so this was a very cool Christmas gift from my brother. Poured out of a 12 oz can into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a clear, dark amber/copper color with a slightly off-white, fluffy looking head that's well over an inch thick when first poured. Head settles eventually to a good 1/3 inch thick with excellent retention and good lacing. Aromas of toasted, bready malts with some caramel sweetness notes along with some rye, and some fruity notes of raisin and a hint of plum. The taste is pretty much the same, with toasted, bready malts with some caramel sweetness , some rye spice, the aforementioned dark fruit notes, and an earthy, herbal hop bitterness. Very good balance of flavors here. Has a slightly crisp, mainly smooth/frothy, medium bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation, Easy to drink in the good way well crafted beer ought to be. Has a clean finish and slightly dry aftertaste. A good beer and nice take on this style. Very glad I got to dry this and i recommend you do the same if you get the opportunity to.

Pours mostly clear deep amber/pale brown with abundant effervescence rising to the top. The pour produces 1.5 fingers of frothy, beige, shortlived head that leaves a thin island cap and collar ring with thin streaks of lace just above the collar. Aroma is toasted bread, rye spice, caramel/toffee and fruity with a weak hint of vanilla and faint floral hops. Taste is fruity and earthy with rye malt and spice, toast, brown bread and caramel in the lead; a little cocoa and a faint woody vanilla hint are mixed in; a floral hoppiness comes through as a bitterness in the finish that lingers in the malty, fruity, lightly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation; silky/velvety it may be but it becomes grainy late in the finish being prickly on both the tongue & palate.

The body has a deep dark copper hue that's topped with a creamy tan head.
The nose is fruity and sweet with hints of apricot and tea.
The flavor follows the nose with the fruity sweetness and also brings on a peppery spiciness that's exactly what I was looking for in a rye beer.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.
This is a beer l could drink all night long and never grow bored with.
