Ellicottville Hey Guy Rye
My girlfriend and I were so impressed with Ellicottville Brewing Company (try the spicy peanut soup!) that we stopped in again on the way home from Niagara Falls. I ordered a Hey Guy Rye for my lunch-time beer. The beer pours a copper color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel, rye, fresh pine and lemon hops. The taste is smooth and sweet at first with caramel before the beer bites a little and dries out on the finish. The rye kicks in at this point and is a welcomed balancing ingredient. The alcohol content is 8.5% ABV. The hey Guy Rye is a great sweet beer with a wonderful hop balance.
