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.

egajdzis (5521) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, sweeter rye, some spicy notes, light toffee. Taste of toffee, light honey, rye, and a grassy bitterness.

22 fl. oz. aluminum adventure bottle. Nice packaging concept, a threaded cap might complete it by making it re-closeable and re-useable, as well as some recycle info... just saying. Mostly clear golden yellow, foamy white head fades. Spicy rye dominates the aroma and taste, all but overshadowing the Pilsen malt and lightly bitter grassy hops. Average carbonation, lighter body, low hopped. Crisp, earthy and dirty makes it: LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

22 alumibottle. Whether you like this beer depends entirely on whether you can enjoy the commingled earthinesses of rye and grassy pilsner malt. Neither is super earthy on their ownses, but together they make a nice big pile of dirt. Pours a very slightly hazy bronzed medium amber with a dense and creamy light tan head that goes quickly away. Earthy rye husks and mild pepperiness combined with wet grass on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb, plenty of earthy grass and grain husk together on the mid palate. Long tangy finish. Kinda nice, but, then, I love me some rye and some pilsner, so there it is.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Alumabottle:   Hazy straw, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Zesty grassy nose, rye, some very light citrus and spicy notes.   Smooth, grassy, a little dry and ashy.   Not as citrusy and spicy as the nose suggests, but clean.   Decent amount of sweetness to balance the normal grassiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Not too sharp, but its clean, lots of body, and a little different from the rest in that its sweeter with a soft rye flair.   This was pretty damn tasty!   Also gets a little barnish, musty, and rustic on ya too.   Winner!

Tap @ Base Camp... Poured pale golden with a nice forming white head. Nice pilsner taste with bitter hops and clean finish. The rye added an extra depth to the bitterness and spicing. Pretty good drinking lager.

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Funky "canottle", brought back and shared by Grippitis. Deep golden hue rocky off white head. Slightly skunky aroma, husky grainy profile, some caramel, but no real rye character for me. Just okay.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Draft at Base Camp, Portland, OR on 1 June 2013. Poured a very hazy yellow with only a thin halo of white head. Aroma of rye, biscuit and some hay. Initial flavour had citrus hop, lemony bitterness, but was slightly astringent and soapy. Palate had grain, caramel and ended with a dry finish.

Yet another American craft-brewed beer that calls itself a pilsner, but is actually an overly hoppy attempt, reminiscent of an American pale ale. I don’t really taste the rye, either, and I’m not sure if that is good or not. This is not a terrible beer by any stretch, but it gets docked a point for calling itself something it is not. I added a point because of its excellent head.
