Buxton Brewery American Rye (4.3%)

American RyeThis is the lightest rye beer I’ve tasted, I suppose it does advertise itself as a pale ale on its label, but I was still slightly surprised by just how light this is.
Not that I’m complaining at all, American Rye is a lovely heaps of hops and a good malt body.
As I opened and poured I was given a lovely fruit and bran aroma and an appetising frothy head.
The first sip was full of orange marmalade and apricot jam spread over a slice of soft rye bread, all bran rich, vaguely earthy and dipped in toffee.
The hops here are all mango and grapefruit, passion fruit, lychee and lime zest.
Sharp, clean, crisp and dry, they work with the rye to leave a finish that’s both lingering and fresh, and strong and meaty.
Another winner from Buxton.
