Founders Red's Rye

I knew pretty much nothing about this beer, except that it must obviously have some rye in it. It immediately has a lot going on for it when I stick my nose in the glass... a toasty, rich caramel aroma... and oh, hoppy too. That sweet malt had me really excited to taste it though. In the taste you get more of a toasted malt + alcohol (6.8% ABV) sort of flavor before it fades into a citrusy finish. I couldn't detect a spiciness from the Rye though, but overall it had a pretty good flavor to it. 4.05/5.
