Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye
Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye is a Rye Amber Ale aged on French oak.
This is a very nice Amber Ale, which isn’t a style I usually get too jazzed about. Nice smooth malt with a bit of sweetness, and a nice amount of spiciness from the rye. What really makes this beer, however, is the French oak. There are fantastic, but subtle, notes of dry wood and vanilla that really brings some character to the beer.
A great sign of things to come from this relatively new Athens brewery. If their every day beer is going to be this solid, I will expect some great things from the more limited creations!
