The Bruery Rugbrod

Type: dark ale
Origin: Placentia, California
Price: $8.99 per 750 mL

I was a little indifferent towards my last beer from The Bruery. This is brewed as a traditional Danish-style rye ale, and I don't have very much experience with this type of beer. The last one I had was from Norrebro at the San Diego Beer Festival which I remember as being fantastic. And this one is pretty damn good. The rye gives this kind of a porterish flavor, but it is much more refreshing and sweet than a porter with a bit of spiciness. The smell on this is pretty bready, and it makes more sense because rugbrod is a type of danish rye bread. This beer actually made me look at tickets to Copenhagen, so +1 for the inspiration
