This is the second rye lager I’ve made, in trying to make a beer like I remember Bell’s Smitten. This didn’t turn out like I wanted it, but still turned out enjoyable.
Faint sweet aroma of malt. Crisp taste of malt and a hint of yeast. Hop flavor is very much in the background, but gives a slight bite. Leaves palate fairly clear with a mild lingering malt sweetness.
