Notes / Commercial Description:
No children, no cry! In true Rastafarian spirit – drinking our RastafaRye Ale directly benefits underprivileged kids. Everything is Irie with our award-winning RastafaRye Ale, a hearty rye malt, blended with fresh West Coast hops resulting in a delicious, deep copper ale with just the right amount of rye flavor to offset the spicy, floral characteristics of the hops. The Blue Point Brewing Company donates a portion of all RastafaRye Ale sales to They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO) a Taj Weekes charity foundation that helps orphaned and underprivileged children in the Caribbean and around the world.

I drank this beer out of the can during my rating. I have had this beer on many occasions in the past. I prefer it on draft and/or bottled better. I Feel my rating is not giving this beer justice.

Golden orange in color. Fairly clear in appearance. This is pretty good. Nothing special, kinda sweet, tropical fruit and dry rye. Orange. It's drinkable.

I guess expecting a very potent rye flavor in a beer with rye in the name was something I should have tempered given Bluepoint's reputation? Had this on cask, and was expecting a more pronounced rye aroma and bite. Not a bad beer at all, but I've had other beers with rye in the wort which expressed the character of this grain in a much more forward fashion. The aftertaste leaves a pleasant bitterness and earthy spice that hints at rye but I wanted it more front and center.
