Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cameron’s Rye Pale Ale ABV is one of our most popular seasonal beers. It was originally brewed for the 2011 Bar Volo IPA challenge, earning 2nd Place, by combining the best parts of American and British IPA styles, we achieved a robust and unique staple. This fusion is hazy orange-amber in colour, with a well-constructed white head. It begins with an up front citrus aroma followed by a complex malt body with a hint of peppery rye which releases earthy floral British hop flavour on the finish.

It is made of a combination of seven different floral British and pungent American hops, some which are added in a dry hopping process. This involves adding hops directly to the fermented beer in the fermenter. The hops are well supported by a large malt bill of five character malts with a generous portion of rye which contributes to mouth feel and Cameron’s Rye Pale Ale’s own special character.

Nice surprise, as I like a good rye beer! Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Beautiful thick foamy beige head and nice lacing. Slightly boozey spicy smell. The taste and feel is rich with nice rye spice, a bit of pine, some caramel,and right amount of bitterness. Very nice beer!

On tap. Purs a big creamy head, with medium retention and a ggod lace. Aroma of citrics, almonds, cloves, honey, something I can't tell, it maybe the rye, but I've never smelled rye :-( Medium body, crfeamy palate, strong carbonation. Taste of almonds, citrics, honey, and again that something that I really don't know what it is. good.

Thank you LCBO for discounting beer every blue moon. I was under the impression this was a Rye beer--as in whiskey. Thankfully I was told it was not--what a gem of a beer.
Very light colour-almost no foam on the pour. The 650 ml bottle is a nice touch-almost 2 beer for a good price. The taste was very pure-no aftertaste. Clean with a bit of a hop kick. Not too strong but very refreshing. Would recommend for those who would like to try a hoppier beer but not one that kicks your ass.

Enjoyed from the 22 oz bottle in a snifter. This FINE rye pours a light copper color with a nice head of white dissipating bubbles that fades to a thick ring, pooling layer, and very nice clinging lacing. Nose of spicy rye, black pepper, herbal and bittering hops, and touches of citrus fruit. Flavors exceed the nose with spicy rye, black pepper, and caramel malts on all sides. The middle of the taste presents cola flavors that subside to a bitter hops quality that is solid for the style. Smooth and lightly creamy, carbonation is a perfect balance to cut the sweetness and spice of the rye with a bitter and herbal hop finish.

Excellent

Cheers

Robust pale ale. I love rye, when harnessed properly it adds great dimension to a beer. I associate rye with colder climates, it seems almost obvious that an Ontario brewery would utilize it. I am amazed at the availability of such a well made Pale Ale at the Beer Store. Then again, they do carry Unibroue products as well. Fantastic and flavourful 'session' beer for me. The rye spice melds wonderfully with the grapefruit, dankness, resin and orange rind. The peppery spiciness is balanced by a rather multifaceted and interesting malt bill. Toffee, caramel and biscuit flavours make this a well-rounded brew. I also love the bitter finish, with the lingering hop resin and oils coating the palate. I don't detect any tropical fruit aside from the citrus notes that lean towards orange/grapefruit zest.
