COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ripstop Rye Pils is our reinterpretation of the classic pilsner lager beer: aromas of European malt and noble-type hops mingle with a dignified, refreshing, and clean malt character that is further distinguished with a generous addition of spicy rye malt, creating a beer that is at once malty, zesty, crisp, hoppy, and incredibly drinkable.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours filtered gold with a tall and lasting white head. Quiet nose of floral lemon oil and pith with a light grain / biscuit quality and a light touch of musty / funky starches (potatoes, rye, that sort of thing). Very creamy carbonation with smooth malt, very enjoyable first taste, before it turns overly-bitter. Lots of lemon oil and pith, some enjoyably tart and almost-sourish pilsner malt. Overall an interesting beer, but not interesting because of the rye addition (which isnít necessary at all), but because it has a lot of active German hop lemon aromatics and a pleasantly clean body. Itís over-hopped for its body and dryness but thatís pretty typical for American breweries doing German styles.

Reid (1899) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz aluminum bottle..very nice packaging. From Fred Meyer in N.Salem . $5.49 Pours a nice glowing golden colour with a large and frothy white head. Nice noble pils aromas on this one along with crackery malts..there is a slight spiciness from the rye. Taste is similar to the aroma with the rye oming more to the fore after a few sips..very nice. Good palate..nice and on style. I liked this beer a lot, one of the best lagers from Oregon

BrewDad (4996) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Golden in color slight haze with a thin head. Interesting light rye flavor and finish. Very light adding to the Pilsner flavor. Very tasty beer and I like that it was crisp.

neepsntatties (1208) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2013
On tap at Belmont station. Colour...hazy gold with a foamy white head. Nose...floral and hoppy with spice and biscuits. Palate...nicely frothy with classic pils flavours and a fabulous bitterness all around the palate. The spiciness of the rye really comes through on the finish and the bitterness helps accentuate the rye. Nice take on the pilsener style!

ericdevin (770) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2013
Draft at Sixteen Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy golden/straw. Fair amount of head. Aroma is biscuity, not much of the rye, really. Body is lively but not overly so, finish starts sweet, with rye coming in at the end, as well as a surprisingly bitter grassiness. Not bad, just not my cup of tea.

On draught at Base Camp. Balanced pilsner with a kick from the rye. Malty and biscuity with a pleasing little hop kick at the end.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Good looking draught beer. Grassy pilsenery aroma. Balanced flavour with a crisp finish. Some little rye spiciness in the flavour. Tastes light enough to be a session beer.
