Amber Rye

This nose is excellent; rising dough, very bready.

The malt is very forward in this beer, too. There’s a bit of that rye spice on the finish, which takes the place of any real hop bitterness. That’s fine-I was going for a situation where I’d get to pick up on the rye malt!

It’s a really drinkable ale, I think. But I think this would be well complimented with some salty snacks; roasted nuts being the thing that really comes to mind. I feel ilke this beer could stand up to some hearty foods, too-definitely a good ‘reset the palate’ beer for food.

Definitely revisiting this one.
