Reynard the Fox Golden Wry Ale
Descendants Beer and Beverage Co. really delivered with a great name when they chose to call their rye ale Reynard the Fox Golden Wry Ale. Pretty cool packaging too on its 473mL can. The beer, which hails from Kitchener, Ontario, is a cloudy golden brew. It pours with a wispy layer of off-white foam.
Reynard has a very mild aroma, with some nicely-spiced grain elements. The flavour is also a bit scanty, though what's there is quite pleasant. There are toasty malt notes that support a primarily grainy taste.
Despite its excellent name and packaging, this golden rye ale was just ok. It has some nice things going for it, but came up a bit anemic. It was, however, drinkable and crisp.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
