Rye Of The Beholder originally debuted as a single keg offering three years ago and stayed in the mind of Beerland brewer Andrew Dean, patiently waiting for a larger release. A fan of the grass – yes, rye is a grass- he describes its influence on the beer as imbuing a light spicy pepper, ginger nut biscuit and background dried fruit characters.
Generous application of Enigma hops lifts Eye Of The Beholder to a punchy 60 IBUs while also providing melon and pine needle to complement the 20 percent rye malt in the grain bill. Likewise, the dry finish accentuates the bitterness and perceived spice in making this feel bigger than its sub-6 percent ABV stature might lead one to expect.
