Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a one finger white head that eventually doubled in size from constant, light carbonation; nice presentation. Very nice aroma of light bready malt and light grassy and floral hops, slightly sweet. Flavor follows with light malt, noble hops and a hint of rye sourness. Light to medium bodied with pleasant active carbonation. A very nice, well balanced pilsner with a deft light touch of rye. I don't do much session drinking, but if I did, this would probably be what I'd drink. I will revisit this and check out other Base Camp beers. Nicely done. So this comes in a cool aluminum, crown capped bottle. Is this a can or a bottle? I'll follow earlier reviewers with bottle, but we may need a new serving type here.

22 ounce metals bottle at Das Bierhaus, Burlington, VT.

Poured a medium straw hue, with dome chill haze, and with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a vibrant noble hop spice atop a grainy pilsner malt.

The taste consisted of a grainy pilsner malt and a super spicy, herbal noble hop. Rye spice added greatly to the experience.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a very tasty, and spicy pilsner.

Handsome golden amber brew in the Duvel tulip, with a very nice foamy cap. Crisp mouthfeel with plenty of spritziness. More attractive suds with every pour.Delicious warm, malty taste with that grainy rye flavor. Slightly sweet with the elegant rich tangy taste. Nice aftertaste of malt with the distinct bitter twant of hops.

Another great rye-flavored brew. I'd call this one a Rye Beer-- but is it a lager or an ale? Is it a can or a steel bottle? I don't know but the graphics are quite unusual and beautiful. Also it seems narrower and sleeker than the standard 22 oz bottle, which now seems clunky by comparison. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

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 bright gold with a huge white head into my glass. Lots of lacing and the head sticks around for quite a while, even as it warms up.

Spicy rye malt compliments the use of noble hops in the nose. Not as sweet or grainy as some examples. I believe that makes this beer hop-forward.

The taste is where this beer really shines. The spiciness of the rye adds to the earthiness of the hops with a touch of buttery bread in-between. Very crisp too.

The mouthfeel is just more of the excellent interplay between rye malt and noble hops. It has a "chewy" texture to it as well.

Besides the ultra-cool aluminum bottle, this beer would work very well on a camping trip. I would still pour it into a glass/cup though. Unlike their In-Tents Ale, this is much more drinkable.
