Beer Tasting: Kew Richmond Rye
I bought this beer, appropriately, from Whole Foods Richmond.
It pours mostly clear amber-gold, effervescent, with a foamy, off-white head. The aroma is big and grainy, with lots of bready malts, notes of ripe citrus, orange peel, a little toast. Light-medium sweet flavour with just faint minerality, touches of white grape, melon, more citrus fruits, bitter orange rind, grainy pale malts. Light bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. The beer finishes with more lightly toasted grains, drying minerals, a dash of pine resin, more rindy citrus.
Overall, it's not bad. If you like grainy rye beers, this one is a fair example of the style.
