4/19/2014 at Base Camp Brewing Co. Served in a small-sized taster glass as part of a flight.

Everything about this except the taste describes itself as a pretty typical pilsner. The rye, however, completely throws off the taste, such that it has an extremely harsh bite and a frankly bad aftertaste that ruined my ability to enjoy it.

Served on tap into a pilsner glass.

A- Poured a pale golden color, very clear with visible carbonation, bright white fluffy head that left glass coating lace.

S- Huge floral, honey, citrus, and clean lager notes.

T- Lots of floral, honey, lavender, pilsner malt, citrus, and spicy rye notes.

M- Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, dry, and refreshing.

O- An incredibly unique take on a pilsner with a great balance of sweet and spicy notes. One of the best pilsners I have ever had.

Pours a hazy light golden yellow with a smallish head that leaves very respectable lacing.
Aroma is spicy rye with an earthy/bready backbone.

Taste is crisp, clean, and refreshing. A very nice blend of grainy malts, rye, and a touch of earthy/grassy hops that gives it the slightest hint of bitterness at the end.

Overall, a great interpretation of a Pilsner.
And the bottle concept is just plain awesome! Thank you Portland Oregon...hikers rejoice!

Appearance: opaque, piss yellow with nice clean head and tiny bubbles.

Taste: Crisp and hoppy, malty. Well balanced, crispy dry crackers at the end.

Notes: I didn't find this very interesting.
