Bomber. Caramel color, cloudy, decent head. Malty but musty aroma. Thick, carbonated, sharp finish. Overall okay, but not a favorite.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle. Bright amber with a medium off-white head. Nice toasty caramel flavour. Grassy hops with a metallic edge (are there noble hops in here?) More like a vienna than a lager, but a nice session beer regardless.

Pours a coppery brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruit with caramel. Taste is the same with a moderate bitterness. Not bad.

Amber color with a thick off white head. Sugary caramel aroma. Not much complexity to the taste. Itís a good drinkable beer though.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a lager glass.

Appearance: Dark copper to brown proper. Mostly hazy but some transparency to it. Forms a small, off white soapy head which doesnít last very long or lace much.

Smell: Plenty of malts for a lager. Very similar to a marzen with hints of confectionary sweetness, but a noticeable lager aroma overall.

Taste: Itís rare that you can smell malts in a lager (aside from a doppelbock), so you can imagine how much that will come through in the taste. And indeed Coney Island Lager is quite malty. The bottle indicates it uses 8 different malts and 6 types of hops. They certainly work well together, creating for a slightly toasty, biscuity malt taste with accompanying bitterness. A light caramel flavor is present as well, mostly on the finish, and provides a good balance to the standard "beer" taste found here.

Drinkability: You could mistake Coney Island Lager for an ale due to the taste, but the actual drinkability is classic lager style. The fizziness makes the mouthfeel quite lively all the way through with a slight carbonation burn if drank too fast. The mouthfeel is thick than your average lager in conjunction with a perfectly medium bodied palate, but mostly clean in the aftertaste (although I would not describe this beer as being refreshing). The 5.5% ABV weight seems to fit that frame perfectly: more "pep" than your average lager, but nothing even approaching the stronger or imperial territories.

12oz bottle from Pickís poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with a half finger of white head. Pretty subtle aroma. A little caramel malt with some skunk and metal shavings. Taste is about the same. Caramel and skunk. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, itís ok. Nothing I would buy again though.

22oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, orange-copper color; modest light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Crackly pale ale malts, cereal grains, and a spicy/herbal hop character in the aroma; a touch coarse. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; following the nose, the approach is rough here: excess CO2, sharp bitterness and (seemingly) some tannic qualities from the malt; the flavorís endearing once one gets past that, showing some really nice cereal grains, spicy hop flavor, and toasty Pils malt; plenty tasty going on here, but a muddled and sharp mouthfeel isnít helping. Lasting toasty finish: modest dryness, lingering mineral bitterness and cereal grains.

hazy appearance, aroma of bread, lightly bitter, light body, average carbonation, tastes pretty much like similar lagers of this style.
