O’Hanlons Organic Rye

Super. Much less Rye in the taste than others that use it, in fact this really sits in my own category of classic English bitters.
Two separate reviews in one here. First the pour without the yeast; lovely, quite lively carbonated, golden pour. Small head and lots of smooth bitterness up font. Delicious balance with a biting finish and warming aftertaste.
Secondly the pour with the sediment; obviously alters the appearance and cuts back on the bitterness, but still absolutely delicious. Distinct aroma of mown grass and tempered hops.
The Rye lends an initial sweetness that is unusual and fades quickly.
Great label with lots of information including ingredients. A nice, simple note about bottle conditioning too and some information about the beer itself.
