In Tree Brewing Company’s new line of 355ml bottles comes the Monkey Pod Rye Ale. In the RAW series this Rye Ale ours into the glass as an amber-golden colour topped with one finger of lightly lacing head. The beer is slightly cloudy as it is unfiltered and gives off a citrus aroma of hop, grass and a solid malt flavour. The Rye spice also comes through giving a touch more body to the beers smell. The Monkey Pod is mid bodied and is more malt-forward than you may expect. With all the big Rye-IPAs out there it is refreshing to taste a rye ale with a bit more to it than hop. A light rye spice is paired with a malt forward body and still a relatively hoppy back. Citrus tones come through strong from the hops in a refreshing and tasty Rye Ale. Give it a try, it is quite nice!
