3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a NYC deli.
It’s the He’brew guys again, eh? I would have thought it risky to cahrge serious money for lager in such a fierce market.
But this is a nice, malty, pleasant lager, probably similar to what you could have had on Coney Island ca 1910. That being said, all the fuzz on the label about 6 malts and 4 hops is a bit too much. But it was lovely with a slice of spinach pizza.

2/5/11. Bomber. Clear red pour with a foamy tan head that cuts in half but lasts. Grainy metallic grainy aroma with a spicy hop bite. Dry grainy flavor with a hint of chocolate, caramel, and malt. A bit papery as well. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Amber hued with a fading fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, caramel and grainy malt, a dusty yeast and a slight peppery ester. The taste has a nice kick of herbal bitterness over a layer of biscuity malts. There is a hop spice finish and a hint of metallic character. The mouth feel is crisp around the edges with a grainy aftertaste. Not bad, quaffable brew.

"Man, that freaky ass clown label sure gets your attention. A brew I’ve passed on several times but decided to give a few Coneys a whirl. This ones just ok... Light grassy hops and some grainy malt and a bit of sweetness, with a slightly bitter finish. Average brew."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big ol’ bottle. Pours light amber wtih a big pock-marked head. The nose is quite aromatic ... almost Saazy, almost Northwesty. It drinks with a mellow smoothness not uncommon to a "Vienna" but this has more built-in character than that, hinting at the more Americanized stylistic twists of hoppiness, hinting at a floral brew. Intersting brew. Bring on the hot dogs. (#3264, 1/1/2008)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to my brother for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy brown/orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee and caramel malts with some grass notes mixed in. The beer also smells a little bit like iced tea. The flavor is tea, earth, grass and biscuit malts. Very easy to drink and the alcohol is completely hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
St. Petersburg, Fl. - Shep’s Deli - 22 oz bomber. Medium copper colored pour with a bubbly, airy white head. Not much of an aroma, a hint of fresh lake water and some graininess. Hint of bittersweetness in the flavor with some mild nutty flavors, a hint of caramel and a touch of bland lager. Nothing offensive here - just does not set my world on fire. Clean, even mouthfeel. Mark this one as average. Unlike other Coney Island brews this one does not sport a phallic symbol....unless I just do not "get" the smiling circus guy.
