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.

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

Nose: Pineapple, citrus, and yeasty.

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

Notes: I didn't find this very interesting.

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.
