Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We are excited to announce our latest year round- Schell’s Emerald Rye! Schell’s Emerald Rye is assertively hopped (hopped again, and again, and again, and then dry hopped) to impart a firm, dry bitterness and features the uniquely fruity, hoppy aroma of the German Emerald hop. With 60 IBU’s this lager rivals that of an IPA, but unlike an IPA we lagered it, giving this beer a crisp, smooth, clean finish on your palate. A biscuity malt foundation gives it balance and a luxurious, deep ruby color. A hint of rye enhances the subtle spiciness of the Emerald hop and complements the delicate notes of lemon and orange marmalade within the aroma. The rye also adds a layer of spicy complexity that leaves you wanting more.

60 IBU

Beer poured out from the bottle and into a pint glass. It was deep caramel in colour with an orange/reddish tinge. Had good clarity to it. Smelled of peppery rye with slight malt. Distinct hoppy rye taste with a clean finish.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.

An older bottle with a BB date of 1/28/13

A-Poured into a pilsener glass this beer is super foamy, a fistful of off-white frothy head with good staying power and great lacing. Just a bit of chill haze and amber in color.

S-Clean malt aroma, some spicy rye character. Non-descript hoppy character as well, more noble than NW US in aroma.

T-As the aroma, a spicy flavor (rye and hops intertwined) dominates this brew.

M-Medium bodied, fairly highly carbonated with a medium length finish that is drying and slightly bitter. Alcohol well hidden for such a high ABV lager.

O-An interesting brew, one for the fans of rye and hop forward brews this is a drinkable beer from Schells.
