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.
