McGrath's in Harrisburg had Erie Ryebender on draft and I ordered a glass. The beer is copper in color with a light head. There aroma was very faint, but I picked up grains and sweet malts. The taste is smooth and creamy with light hints of rye and malt accents. There is a sweetness of caramel in the undertone and the beer finishes dry with the kick of rye. I was not able to locate the alcohol content online, as the beer is not on Erie's website. I thought that this is a very good rye beer and it drinks very easily, while maintaining a sweet flavor.
