In this beer blog, we are going to get into a special release from Guinness. It is their Rye Pale Ale. Guinness started in 1759 in Ireland. They are known for making stouts. Let us get into this Rye Pale Ale.
It has a slightly cloudy dark golden color with a white constant head. The smell has a slight citrus to rye like notes. The taste has a very slight citrus to rye like notes with a dry slight bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Created by the brewers at The Open Gate Brewery as a holiday gift for their colleagues, friends and families, Guinness Rye Pale Ale proved so popular they had to share it with everyone. The rustic, spicy character of rye grain is balanced with citrus and grapefruit from the mosaic and cascade hops, making it a fine addition to the Guinness family.
Ending, I have always been a fan of Guinness. I have over the years step away from drinking it. It is not because I do not like it anymore. I love their stout. There are so many choices of beer out there now. Just like all Micro and Marco, I will try all the new beers that they put out on the market. I like it but I am not going out of my way to get it. It does taste like a Guinness brand. If it is the only thing left in the bar, I will drink it. I recommend this beer . Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to try Sky High Rye Ale from Arcadia Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not read them, please, do so to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a clear golden color with a nice presentation of small bubbles. It has a white constant head. The smell is extremely fated. I cannot pick it up aroma notes. The taste has a light rye to other spice notes. The aftertaste is a heavy rye notes. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
This West Coast-style Pale Ale is brewed with 80% English barley malt and 20% rye malt. It boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops, contributing notes of lemons, peaches and pine needles and anchored by sweet, malty flavor of toffee and freshly-baked pumpernickel bread.
Closing, I really did like this beer because it is a little different from the classic pale ale beer style. Overall, I am not a huge fan of this brewery and most of their beers. I love the rye spicy notes but not over the top like most rye ales. There is a nice balance in this beer. It is pretty refreshing brew. I like this beer but it is not at the top of my list as far as rye ales. I have had better rye ales. This is a great beer and I recommend it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
