Clear and copper, very pretty color in the glass. Head and lacing were ok.

Smells and tastes friggin' hoppy! The bartender told me this is a new version, and is made with Galaxy hops from New Zealand and Tasmania (probably amongst other stuff, lol). Very tasty! Malt balance is good, it's a very balanced and tasty pale ale that's a bit darker than most pale ales, but is crystal clear.

Extremely tasty and easy to drink. Body is light but just a tad chewy and oh so amazingly hoppy on the finish! It's very hard to believe they crammed so much hops into this low ABV, low IBU beer. Bravo!

This is way better than their usual pale ale, although appearance wise it's probably a clone recipe for at least the base malts. However, they've certainly changed it up for this beer. It's an amazing must-try.

Pours clear gold amber with white head that lightly laces the Schlafly "Hops & Rye" glass.

Aromas of fresh lemons, yeast, bready malts that improve with warming.

A medium dextrinous mouthfeel, starts with lemon hops ends malt sweetness. Not especially English (no diacetyl) IMHO but some earthy flavors are there.

Very clean and drinkable as you would expect of a "flagship beer" brewed with organic ingredients.

Clear full gold. White lacey head from the sparkler leaves good lacing down the glass.

Yeasty, bready malt on the nose, which is softly supported by very lemony, grassy hops. Some earthier notes come out as it warms, adding complexity.

Light side of medium in the mouth, with a long, soft, full malt sweetness that lingers on the finish. Well-balanced by a nice lemony hop that stays through the finish as well. The hop flavor fleshed out to include a captivating earthy note. Very nice.

Good level of carbonation. Very quaffable beer and an excellent food companion due to its balanced nature.

On-tap at my Wedding Rehearsal Dinner @ Schlafly Tap Room.

A - Pours a yellow/burnt orange color, white head, spotty lace.

S - A nose dose of hops with this one and not as much sweetness as I was expecting (with my experience with their normal Pale). Citrus, pine, grass, light floral notes, and some toasted malts.

T - Not as much "English" in the Pale when compared to the flagship Pale, which I like (a lot). Citrus hops, grass, and some floral notes combine with some bready malts and light sweetness. Finish is light bitterness and grass.

M - Light body, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - This destroys the regular Pale and is right up there with the Dry-Hopped APA. Really nice, easy drinking, and enjoyable...what more do you want? I'd have again for sure.
