3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle -
It’s been hit or miss with this Coney Island line-up of beers. Some have been nice, others....forgettable. This was pretty nice, easy to drink, freshing w/o having to think too hard if you like it or not. Earthy/wet leaves aroma which I attribute to some use of noble hops, a little corn, apple juice, some light hay. Flavor carries some light-medium sweetness for a pilsner, bready malts, a touch of floral hops and just a bit of cornyness in there, but do-able. Looks great in my Duvel glass, big fluffy head with slow dissipation, decent lacing, bright body. You could do much, much worse. A little bit pricey for $9.00 a sixer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to pint shaker. Pours a clear yellow, with sparse white head that dissipates. Strong citrus scents. Good malt backbone, and lemon like hop flavors. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear yellow with minimal white head. I was immediately taken aback, in a good way, by the strong hop presence. Noble hops throughout with a clean malt/grain palate and crisp finish.

Pint from Fish in the West Village. Wicked hoppy for a pilsner. Drink with oysters.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft. No aroma. Sudsy lace. Flavor is under-hopped, a blast of spicy rye malts and then a dissolve. Average.

Bottle. Pale yellow with small white foamy head that dissipates quickly, hops aroma, crisp sweetish taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. Not bad for a pilsner.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Off the Wagon in NYC. Got nothing on the aroma. Golden yellow with a head that quickly fades. Taste is citrus and hops. Simple flavor. But very drinkable for as hoppy as it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dan's. The pour is a clear yellowish with a nice white head that fades down slowly. The aroma is pretty citrusy. There is a little bit of a malt character and a good floral note on the back end. The flavor is very similar. I like the floral nature mixed in with the good hop character. The mouthfeel is thin, but there is a good carbonation and a sweet, hoppy aftertaste that helps out pretty good. I like it.
