My feelings on this beer may be compromised because I haven’t had dinner. Everybody knows beer is way more delicious when you’re hungry. Especially a sweet, honey-flavored beer. Man, I like this beer.
So this is Madison River Brewing Company’s Salmon Fly Honey Rye. Say that out loud with a Southern accent, it’s fun.
This here honey rye is quite excellent. I can taste the honey, but it’s not overpoweringly sweet. It’s a lighter beer, but still has some complexity. I can see sipping this while sitting on a porch on a warm summer afternoon.
(Well, seeing as it’s windy as fuck and 24 degrees right now, I’d really love to just sit on a porch during summer, period.)
Once again, Madison River: you guys need to have taproom hours besides Tuesdays.
