A straw- colored brew, Rye Pils pours out of the can to a generally clear body and offers a nose of rye and floral notes. It is nothing extreme and is rather pleasant and appealing.

This beer has a nicely balanced taste with flavors of rye, pale malt, lightly spiced hops/pepper, bread/biscuits, and fruit. The beer is very session- like, easy- going, and agreeable. There is some graininess and some grassy hops too, with a flavor profile that is rye accented but not overdone in any way.

I like this Deep Ellum brew for many reasons and find it more than acceptable and likeable for most consumption purposes. Casual beer consumers and craft beer lovers alike will both enjoy this product- perhaps for different reasons, but all will enjoy it. Make it a point to try it if you can- it’s a good- tasting, refreshing and crisp beer with much to offer.

Served in a pint at brewery during a Saturday afternoon tour. This guys know how to do it up right. One of my favorite "tours" yet.

Color is a hazy yellow-orange. Smell slightly malty sweet with lemon and orange quickly following and a waft of herbal hops. Subtle apple to the tongue which is backed up by notes of rye and citrus. Clean as hell and light-to-medium bodied.

Is hard to beat some straight forward goodness like this.

12 oz bottle pours a hazed, light gold color with an excellent cap of creamy white head. Fades at a medium pace to a cool-looking sheet of lace. Besides the haziness, which is definitely not in the traditional pilsner lexicon, this is a great looking brew.

Nose is nice; grassy noble hops mix with a zesty, bready rye character. Nothing extraneous, exactly as advertised...smells good, fresh and hoppy.

Taste is well done too, its clean and crisp with plenty of grassy hop flavor and bitterness. The rye seems to have a drying effect on the beer as it does not have the malt sweetness that some import pilsners can exhibit. I dont really have anything negative to say on this beer, except maybe a little depth would help - maybe a zing of malt in the middle. It was a delicious surprise as I hadnt heard much (any) hype on this one, but I'll be damned if next time I am up in the Metroplex I wont pick up a couple sixers of this.

Poured into a tall pilsner glass revealing two fingers of white head and a body that is a hazy golden orange.

Aromas of peppery rye malty breadiness. Citrus and floral hops.

Lots of spicy peppery rye character. A little bit of orange and some noble hop.Bubbly and light bodied.
