3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel malt aroma. Pours orange amber with light white head. Sweet and malty. Nice fresh crispness from a balanced hoppiness. Not bad.

650ml brown bottle. Amber pour, clear. Large sized beige cap that is long lasting. Lots of lacing left behind. Nose is toasty, grainy, light caramel. Taste has bready malts, light toasted notes, grassy hops. Finish has some light grassy aftertaste and some caramel and grains and is mostly dry. Light bodied, average carbonation. Easy drinker, pretty well done. Glad to see that this wasn’t just another pale lager, although I thought it was for a long time and that prevented me from trying this beer sooner.

Draft. Nice Carmel color. Not much aroma but a little flower. Kind of a soapy grape flavor.

Draft at beggar's banquet. Rich caramel color with a white head. Sour, grain and malt aromas. Fruity, grape and pilsnery upfront with a really grainy finish.

(From Notes 2011)
This beer has me laughing my ass off. Friend at the firehouse bar refers to a "Coney Island Beer" as one with all head and nothing else.
Not what i expected. beer form Coney island Stinks. This poured with a dark amber color, very little head and no lacing. odor is unremarkable, similar to and macro Irish Red. taste is somewhat pleasant though. Fuller than most lagers with a nice finish. A great option over Budweiser, Killians or othe macro’s.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brownish tan body with a quarter inch tan cap, looks good for what its suppose to be. Aroma is very mild but what I can detect it seems good. Lemony apple hops, almost hitting Christmas spices but not really, malts are faint. Taste is excellent for a lager.....but what is that really saying. Taste seems very sweet. Some sips seem completely flavorless. Grassy, grainy, clean.........good lager.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coney Island Lager has a very thick, creamy, light beige head, lots of chunky and thick lacing around the glass, a semi-opaque amber appearance, and no apparent streaming bubbles. The aroma is of dank, fruity, bready malts with a touch of a hop zing. Taste is of sweet and sour malt, brown bread, citrus, and one encounters a hoppy undertaste, but the bitterness is low, overall. Lots of hop oil also comes across in the smell and flavor. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, and Coney Island Lager finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a really nice, interesting beer. You should most certainly check it out. RJT

Amber to red with a pretty good tan head and good lacing.
Nice malty and toffee like aromas, with a little bit of bready/doughy notes.
There’s a good blend of biscuit, toast, toffee, grains, caramel, with a pretty good hoppy balance.
Dry and smooth going down, carbonation is ample, body is light, a very nice lager.
Great job again Schmaltz!

Bottle from Whole Food Market, NYC 120907. Clear amber beer with a big white head, not lasting. Berries and fruits aroma. Similar flavour. A bit boring beer.

22oz bottle. Looks sort of dark. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts plus floral hops. Flavor a nice amount of these. Average texture. A decent beer for the style.
