Cool Coney Island / Luna Park crazy face on the label. Pretty dark pour for a lager. Nice aroma for the style too - malty with floral tones. This is a pretty dry, full-flavored lager with a lightly smokey finish. An excellent lager! Schmaltz makes some of the best lagers available. I canít think of a better one offhand.

Tawny in color, with a nice white head. Solid hop aroma, very earthy. Crisp malt smell, very fresh draught. Smooth, nice bit and a classic Vienna style lager.

nuplastikk (4129) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2007
22oz bottle. A little more complex than I had assumed. Deep bronze amber color. Rich and malty, with the sweetness pleasantly balanced by the subtle dryness and complexity of the hops.

22 oz bottle pours a nice clear golden-amber. Herbal - Lemony hop aroma. Flavor is malty, grainy, very lightly hopped. Very easy to drink.

I walk into Bierkraft in Brooklyn and Tim is there stocking. He sees me coming in and grabs a bottle and then hands it over to me...no words spoken. I think to myself: "Hrmph. Thatís interesting." (itís never happened before, and I am in there quite a bit) Pours a clear amber. Big cream head. Nice color. Fragrance is a slight caramel tone with some wood on there as well. Nothing significant going on here, but I feel like what little is there is earthy. Flavor is slightly hoppy, but then a smooth malty smoothness kicks in. Interesting. Complex. Slight woody sweetness. Feel is good. Not a whole lot of body on the liquid, but a nice bubble on there. Overall extremely drinkable. Definitely a session brew. Definitely worth trying. Save Coney Island! (drink more beer)

22 oz. bottle, no freshness date, blurb and list of ingredients along the left side of the label (you can get the exact list of ingredients here, http://www.coneyislandlager.com), dry hopped with Cascade hops, sampled in a lager glass. L: Slightly hazy appearance, amberish copper in color with an inch high head of beige fluffy foam that leaves behind a patchy amount of lace that follows the body down the glass as I consumed it. S: Leafy, spicy, citric hops are the first smells I noticed, followed by toasted caramel and grains. Further whiffs bring out aromas of butter and honey bread. I like the aroma on this lager, it has that twist on the style that Iíve come to expect from Shmaltz. F&T: Smooth and softly crisp mouthfeel, touches of oily hop stickiness on the tongue, ending on a gulp inducing creamy note. This also possesses a good malty heftiness that makes this quite easy to consume. Obviously well thought out, well crafted blend of malts and hops, enough malty sweetness to combat the sour bitterness of the hops. Toasted malty tastes of caramel, grainy bread and toffee, towards the end flavors of honey butter and caramelized sugar add sweetness to the sour citric hops. The hops tastes hold their own and emerge slightly on top at the end. The peels of lemons and grapefruit, tea leafy, herbal earthy, finishing with a mild citric spicy bitterness. The finish also has a quick, clean dryness to it that makes the mouth water for more. I really liked the Coney Island Lager from Shmaltz, uniquely different and highly enjoyable, I canít wait for the next one in the series.

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
