Jester King Wytchmaker Rye India Pale Ale
Jester King Wytchmaker Rye India Pale Ale. The beer pours a copper color with an extremely active and lofty off-white colored head. The aroma has lots of lemon and rye in it with some orange, caramel, pepper, and tea. The taste is big on lemon that is accompanied by a hefty helping of rye, some orange, and tangerine. There is a subtle yet great caramel base that sweetens the palate. A peppery dry finish round out the experience. The alcohol content is 6.8% ABV. The mix of spice and citrus in this beer is wonderful without overdoing the rye aspect. It isn’t too spicy, but it definitely shies away from being too sweet.
