Full Moon Pale Rye Ale

So I have a bunch of reviews that I've done over the past few months sitting in my draft folder. Time to empty that. Get ready for 8 or 10 or so posts coming now!

Back on January 19th I was drinking Full Moon Pale Rye Ale brewed by Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco, Texas. Yet another beer from my friend's Texas trip. The bottle has an illustration of the old Blanco County courthouse. The label describes this beer as "a distinctive pale ale with a touch of rye malt". Best if consumed by 03.21.10. Funny it says "DRINK SOON".

The rye really stands out along with some floral and hoppy scents, too. Rye flavors dominate, with a very distinct graininess. There is also a very nice little bitter bite right away. Citrus flavors are also present, some spiciness and a good sharp lemon peel flavor. Medium carbonation, medium body, creamy in the mouth. Refreshing and crisp, leaving a nice cleansing bitterness on the palate. I really enjoyed this beer. Check it out!
