Oliphant Commander Wm. T. Ryeker India Red Ale

Oliphant Commander William T. Ryeker India Red Ale. 6.5% ABV. Oliphant Brewing, Somerset, WI.

The look: Deep reddish hue, dark and muddy complexion, slim but staying creamy, off-white head. Looking very nice.

In the nose: warm and malty. Some dark fruit, stone fruits. Earthy. Very pleasant.

In the mouth: spicy rye malt. Nicely hopped. Beautiful interplay on the palate. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Medium bodied, long, malty finish. Richly rewarding malt flavors. Love the rye malt character. Damned good beer and you can surely drink it.
