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.

Packaged 3/3/15.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, rye, grass, and earthy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grass, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with rye characteristics that are only coming through in the smell to me.

Serving type: can.
