O'Hanlon's Original Rye Beer

O'Hanlon's Brewing Co Ltd

England

Odd that a beer called O'Hanlon's is from England, and not Ireland. Not quite as odd as the label art, which looks like a bowl of swirling green vomit. Despite that, this beer is proof of my feeling that more brewers should use rye in their beer. It produces a flavorful, sweet taste like a weissbier. This is also bottle-conditioned, and the brewery has the awards from CAMRA to prove it. It's hard to compare the styles, I know, but for bottle-conditioned, I liked this better than Fuller's 1845. This proves it...good label art=bad beer, bad art=good beer.
