3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz aluminum bottle..very nice packaging.
From Fred Meyer in N.Salem .
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

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
