Madison River Brewing Company Salmon Fly Honey Rye
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Madison River Brewing Company Salmon Fly Honey Rye.
From the Madison River Brewing Company website: “Madison River Brewing Company presents Salmon Fly Honey Rye. The malted barley used in this unique brew is complimented by the subtle spiciness of rye. Bittering and flavor hop additions help keep this brew extremely balanced. In addition, there is a mild sweetness that dulls any overwhelming rye or hop flavor derived from the pure local Montana honey. These ingredients blend together to create a lighter bodied drinking experience for all kinds of beer drinkers.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours cloudy pale gold with a white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Malty smelling with caramel and grainy malts, spicy rye, honey and light floral hops.
Taste: Grainy, toasted and caramel malts, spicy rye, sweet honey and balanced nicely with hops.
Overall: Refreshing and delicious I had the opportunity to drink Madison River Brewing Company Salmon Fly Honey Rye both in the bottle and from the tap. This 5.6% ABV is easy drinking and something I would enjoy again if given the opportunity.
