Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America – Pat-Rye-Ot

Posted: January 12, 2017 in American Pale Ale, Reviews, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Conceptually, I like the Beer Camp packs. I like the idea of breweries collaborating and making one-off beers, but sometimes they’re hit or miss. This is one of the ones that I thought was more of a miss.


ABV: 5.6%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Pat-Rye-Ot is an ‘old-meets-new’ take on a pale ale by brewers all located in the original 13 colonies. It features rye and apples, which were among the first ingredients used by American brewers in the colonies, alongside bold American hops—hallmarks of our modern craft beer ‘revolution.'”

Random: “Pitch” is quickly becoming my new favorite show. Fox is putting out some great shows, like this one and “Empire.”

This beer poured with a one finger, slightly off-white colored head that dissipated slowly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was really cloudy and bright yellow. It also had a lot of floaties and moderate carbonation. The nose had a bright lemon and apple note. There was a honey sweetness as well. The taste had a lot more grain to it than the nose. It had the same lemon note as the nose with grains of paradise. It didn’t have a huge amount of sweetness. Rye came through and was incredibly strong with mineral water. The body was thicker than expected with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy and grainy. A bottle of this was $2, which came to $.17 per ounce. I liked the beer, but the rye was a bit too strong.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
