This was highlighted as a German style Rye.

They were served in a classic Pint glass with one finger of a foamy head.

I thought this was an Excellent beer.

It was a light golden color with a nice spicy aroma.

The head did dissipate rather quickly, but a healthy amount of lacing reminded you of the beer you had recently enjoyed.

Flavor had a spicy note of a pilsner but also a nice dry/ "biscuity" finish.

I don't honestly know much about the Rye style but I noted it was slightly less hoppy than is classic pilsner. Yet I still felt it was nicely balanced and loved the bready finish.

If you can, I'd head here to try this offering.

I honestly don't know if it is a limited edition or a staple.

Enjoy.
