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!

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.

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.
