With the current craze in craft beers, it looks like anyone and everyone is getting into the craze. To prove my point, Riptide Rye Pale Ale is brewed by two scientists and an engineer from London, Ontario's Forked River Brewery.
What would three nerds know about brewing beer? Apparently, a little something. I was pleasantly surprised by the fellas from Forked River. Their Riptide Ale tasted deliciously like rye which was a nice change from the other pale ales I had been drinking recently. It also had a nice malty flavour in the finish.
When pouring the beer, I noticed that it was slightly cloudy. I figured it was unfiltered but I was surprised to learn that it's not pasteurized too. This was truely a fresh beer! I was disappointed with the lack of head. There just wasn't much to it. I think maybe that's why I didn't rate it higher.
I give this pale ale three burps. I just wished I could have given it more, but the head let me down.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
