Day #44 – Real Ale Full Moon Pale Rye Ale

February 14, 2011

Texas beer today, this time from Real Ale Brewing Company. Real Ale is based out of Blanco, TX and delivers beer all over Texas in bottles and in draught form.  This is one of their more popular ones, an American Pale Ale with a rye base.

Real Ale Full Moon Pale Rye Ale

This beer pours a rustic orange color with a copper like appearance.  There is a foamy white head that lays low after awhile.

The aroma is fairly nice.  It is a mixture of fresh, citrus hops with a heavy base of rye chips.  Seems fairly well balanced.

Flavor is fruity with orange peel and spicy hops.  There is also a bready flavor that fills the palate.  The rye plays a big part in the body and the finish.

An all around decent beer with a nice bit of spiciness from the hops.

Cheers!
