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.

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Hazy pale, nice rye character, the bitterness is continental and soft and it balances well with the rye.

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Base Camp. Slightly hazed golden pour with white foam. Nice biscuit and bready malts. Somewhat spicy and leafy in terms of the hop profile. Pretty floral and aromatic. There’s a mild bitterness on the back end. Surprising citrus notes towards the finish, too. Good malt flavor and body on this. Easy drinking.

"Can" from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy/translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly rye spicy. Med body or better. Flavor is rye/bready with spice. It’s bready/malty in a very different way. Pretty tasty/drinkable.

mcberko (9343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at Base Camp, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out some feint rye, though it’s all pretty subtle and distant. Flavour brings out rye, herbal notes and some crusty bready notes. Well-constructed, with a rye quality all throughout. Very nice pils.

3fourths (8600) - 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 isn’t necessary at all), but because it has a lot of active German hop lemon aromatics and a pleasantly clean body. It’s over-hopped for its body and dryness but that’s pretty typical for American breweries doing German styles.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/24/15] Draught at Base Camp Brewing in Portland. Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma of diacetyl and a bit of rye. Sweetish buttery flavor with a spicy rye touch and a mildly bitterish finish. Creamy diacetyl mouthfeel.

JorisPPattyn (8437) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2015
Huge, dense, very regularly formed, just yellowish head, stable, leaving some lace over fully veiled yellow beer. Hint at other grains, faintly spicy-yeasty, hay. Bitter-spicy flavour, yeast, all in check and balanced. Rootspices, dry EU-hops. Longlasting bitterness, old bread in the finish. Very dry; medium bodied, outspoken wheat-like slickness. Far from bad. Not my favourite type of beer, but agreable all the same.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a crisp lager yeast with notes of rye and grass. Flavor is quite grassy with a decent amount of rye and a touch of crispness.
