I have done several rye beers and this is the best by far. Its light and crisp, with fairly neutral grains that allow the rye taste to come through. The recipe was originally designed to be a rye pilsner, but I had to substitute Ale yeast due to the warm weather. But the combo is great nonetheless -> a solid light beer with a great rye kick.
