Rockwell Beer Company Byrd Up!

What the brewers say

Rye pale ale lightly dry hopped with Simcoe and Michigan Cascade.

What our panel thought

Almost clear; persistent head. Big, sweet malt-and-fruit aroma—pink lemonade and a hint of dank. Flavor brings grapefruit-orange interplay, pleasant tangerine, sharp malt, with a nice middle hit of bitterness; rye adds complexity. Balance leans sweet.

What our editors thought

Subtle orange and light toasty malt on the nose edge slightly away from the classic approach. On the sip, a strong orange-like note with strong, pithy bitterness and a touch of herbal spice offer structure to offset the bigger body. Retro-futurist.
