New Glarus Unplugged Smoked Rye Ale

New Glarus Brewing in New Glarus, WI has always been a favorite of mine. They consistently produce great beers and are always coming out with something new and exciting. Most of these beers are one-off creations that are released under their "Unplugged" series. This is the first Unplugged release of 2011 and is currently available in the great state of Wisconsin, as New Glarus only distributes in Wisconsin. Hey, it's a good excuse for a road trip!!! :)

Pours into my glass a deep amber bordering on cola with a quarter inch of white bubbles that quickly becomes a ring at the top of the glass. Great clarity. Aromas start with...bam! Big meaty smoke all over the place. Reminds me of a smoldering campfire in the summer. Beneath it lies a somewhat spicy crisp malt body with caramel accents. Earthy as well.

First sip brings semi-sweet malts upfront with a mix of caramel and spicy rye. Smoke kicks into high gear and rides across the palate, big, meaty and earthy. A touch fruity with a hint of sweetness on the back end. Rye and smoke linger on the finish. An intriguing ale to savor!

Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied. Good steady carbonation. Makes for a pretty good sipper. Overall this is a unique brew...smoke heavy with tasty rye in the mix. If you're a fan of smoked beers you'll probably like this, if not you should likely stay way. Cheers to New Glarus!

Overall, I give this brew a rating of Great. Wonderful smoked ale!
