2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, orange/grapefruit), with a light note of black tea.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Reasonably nice, if simple, aroma followed by an uncomfortably sweet and syrupy mouth experience. Sweetness lingers long after the swallow, and is only barely managed by bitterness. Ho hum overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Orange hued caramel, ever so slight haze, large frothy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Musty basement like malt aroma, smidgen of hops, even minor grainess.   Moderate malt base, not as much as I would have thought.   A bit more hop presense than expected.   Clean, with a little cardboardish malt on the finish.   Doesn’t detract tho.   Hint of sweetness throughout.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Could stand to have a bit more thickness.   That would seal the deal for me.   Otherwise more enjoyable than expected.   So far one of the better Shmaltz beers I have had.   Not up to par with Eliot Ness, but still enjoyable.   Would be perfect if it were a little thicker, and slightly sweeter.

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.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber consumed at the Freak Bar at Coney Island. Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt and some corn with some peppery splashes. Tastes very refreshing with some tea like elements and earthy hints. A fun beer at a fun and unusual place. Consumed with some of the freaks from the 10 in 1 freak show.
