3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange tinge, 1 finger pancake head. Rye and German hops in the nose. Bitter. Middle is like rye bread with butter and marmalade. Leaves like a good Pilsner, snappy and refreshing.

Cloudy sunset amber...spicy sweet aroma. Nice twist on a pilsner...a little bitter but not lingering. Grainy and pleasant...peppery on the palate. Well done!

Poured into a tall pilsner glass revealing two fingers of white head and a body that is a hazy golden orange. Aromas of peppery rye malty breadiness. Citrus and floral hops. Lots of spicy peppery rye character. A little bit of orange and some noble hop.Bubbly and light bodied.

Trade extra. Can. Was really excited to try this-nice concept, but it was just a mess. Nose was pretty muted...bit of earthy rye. Very bitter and disjointed. Drain pour. Maybe I got a bad batch? Other ratings seem at odds with this.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light aroma, not much there. Straw yellow color with a tinge of copper, quite clear. Taste is light and spicy, quite smooth with the rumbling dry spiciness of the rye finishing up the aftertaste. A very well balanced beer and much more flavor than your standard pilsener due to the rye. While I don’t typically drink this style, I like it.

Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye (thanks Markus!) poured a clear gold with a lasting egg white head. Aromas of rye, straw, earthiness and spicy hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, straw, spicy hops and light earthiness with a crisp dry bitter lingering rye finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at the Specs on the North side of Dallas, Texas. The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange with a smallish white head. Pretty beer. The aroma is soft floral spiced rye, paired with a crisp toasted grain malt. Delicate and nuanced nose. The taste is the rye up front, spiced and floral, then moves to the toasted grain of the malt. Clean and crisp, rye is more present in the flavor than the nose. The palate is light to medium bodied, a nice unfiltered mouth feel, active cleansing carbonation, and the rye spice finish. Nice one, really impressed with both Deep Ellum beers I have had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Orangish straw, a bit hazy, huge rocky white head, nice lacing.   Straw and rye on the nose, faint pixie stix like sweetness.   Dry and husky on the tongue,definite rye presense but a little rough.   Otherwise a bit grassy.   Not as rough on the finish, actually comes across much better.   A little citrusy sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Lingering citrus bits.   Not as grassy or with straw/hay as most pils.   Seems very Rye like, but also somewhat like a Pale Ale.   Decent.

The rare pils that makes me wonder why I generally avoid them. Right up there with Real Ale Hans as the best I’ve ever had.
