Game Day Beer Review: Devils Backbone Brewing Beggars and Thieves Rye Lager

Pours a clear gold-amber color with a whisp of a head that was gone before we knew it. The beer was produced by multiple Washington, DC area brewers to celebrate the 2013 Craft Brewer's Conference.
It's a bit sweet on the nose, but the overhwlming smell is yeasty. Beggars and Thieves is a lager with a twist -- not quite as clean tasting as a traditional lager, this one's brewed with rye. It's bready and spicy. The beer is well carbonated, and extremely sessionable at 4.9% ABV.
We don't love it but we wouldn't pass it up, either. B
