The annual salmon fly hatch occurs in early summer on the Madison River. In recognition, Madison River Brewing Company presents Salmon Fly Honey Rye. The malted barley used in this unique brew is complimented by the subtle spiciness of rye. Bittering and flavor hop additions balance the sweetness from the hint of pure Montana honey to complete a delightful drinking experience.

    Not a heavy beer with a pleasant hint of honey and rye. Very effervescent, reminding me of a Belgian ale. Slightly bitter finish leaving my palate with a subtle dry feeling. Enjoyed and will buy again.

    Pours a dark gold with very little head. Aroma has a light sweetness with a hint of citrus. Taste took me by surprise though; citrus and floral hops compliment a mild spiciness with a pleasantly bitter finish. Highly drinkable with plenty of flavor to boot.

    The Honey Rye poured a beautiful, filtered amber color, that was slightly more orange-tinged than yellow. Though the beer looked to be a fruity and sweet concoction, especially considering the statement of the use of Montana honey, this Madison River creation was actually more on the milder side. The nose was slightly sweet with just a dash of honey poking through, but mainly just hints of barley tickled the nose. The taste sensations were nothing overly astonishing or overbearing, with the bitter beer flavor being the most noticeable accent near the front of the beer. The honey flavor wasn’t overly pronounced either, with a subtle nudging of sweet hitting the tongue before settling into a nice current of rye that added a different flavor profile than your standard IPA or malt-based beverage. www.barbeerians.com

    A spicy yet sweet brew that is a joy to drink. I was a bit surprised that a rye beer balanced by the honey would be such a delicious beer to drink. A straw yellow colored ale that did not have a head at all but that was the only issue I had. I'm not usually a fan of honey in beer but this time it did the trick to balance the spiciness of the rye. Madison River should try brewing a rye beer without honey and see what the results are. In the meantime I'll be seeking out this beer the next time I am in Montana.
