COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry hopped American Rye Pilsener. Obey the siren song of the mythological Coney Island Mermaid. Four spicy hops flow into seven golden malts. Perfect as a momentary distraction, or equally enchanting as a parade towards deeper delights. When beer tastes this good, and you don’t have scurvy, you don’t need a lime!

This beer pours a chill hazed golden color. It has a tiny ring of head and some spotty lacing. There is some strong malt coming through on the nose and a hoppy spiciness The flavor is nice well balanced offering of various malts and hops. I am getting some light carmel. It does feel a little thin in some places. It finishes with a little dryness and a hop bitterness that tends to linger around awhile. I would have to say more of a bold pil than most.This is the best beer I have had from these guys. Worth a shot for sure.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2010
A nice pilsener. Aroma was nice and hoppy with a spiciness to it. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with a 2 finger off white head. Taste was obviously American pilsener, but I’m not complaining. Sweet pils malt with a wet earhy hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbonation and a little thicker texture than I would like but decent nonetheless.

Thanks JoeMcPhee for the bottle. Hazy orange/golden colour with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Aroma of malt and hops with a hint of citrus fruit. Refreshing texture. Malt flavour with bitter hops.

Pours gold into a lager glass. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Spicy hay and caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront with a dry, lasting, slightly sour and bitter grass finish.

Draft. Pours a clear golden yellow with a white foamy head. Nice, clean aroma with a good balance between bready malts and light hops. A very easy drinking and flavorful pils.

bottle sampled as "The chosen spot"... is this even a pilsner? Sweet and malty with no lagery notes to speak of. In a blind tasting I would have called it a poorly made pale ale. Now I have to call it a really poorly made Pils.

Pour is a hazy tan with a large white head. Aroma is dry bready malts with a little honey. Flavor starts out with the bready malts but then is followed by a nice spicy hop profile. A pretty nice pils with a few different things going on here.
