Ballast Point Reef Rye Brown Ale

RateBeer Score    85 Overall   90 Style

Reef Rye Brown Ale contains 9 different grains (32% Rye), 2 varieties of hops, and our proprietary yeast strain. Reef Rye is an attempt to make an otherwise boring style of beer (Brown Ale) very interesting. The solid malt backbone comes from the addition of Chocolate Malt for color, and Special Roast Malt for baked bread flavors. Big aroma, not usually associated with Brown Ales, from Palisade hops and coriander added post fermentation. Both hops and coriander are rich in linalool. Coriander, added post fermentation with the extra hops, helps add to some of the aroma traditionally derived from dry-hopping alone.
