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!

Draught. Poured clear dark yellow with thick lasting head. Good malty aroma, hay and spring grass with a tiny citrusy note. Medium bodied, medium flavour with a lasting hop finish. Lekker on a hot day

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2010
12oz bottle from Whole Foods, Durham. Ever open a beer without even the faintest hiss of carbonation? Me too. This one. Dark copper pour, basically looks like an amber lager rather than a pilsener. The nose is nice, fairly sharp and well hopped. The mouthfeel is obviously quite lacking, but the flavors - with some rye, spice, and nice peppery hops - are still detectable. I’d give this another shot, with the hope that some carbonation would yield better results.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Appearance: Delivered to me a light, clear, copper-hued body with a modest-sized, white head. Limited lacing on the way down. Smell: Light maltiness embodied by a grainy, bready presence and rounded out with hints of caramel and piquant rye. Spicy-scented hops are simply whelming. A bit of time and warmth rouses a hint of buttery diacetyl on the nose and in the taste. Taste: Lightly bready malts with an attention-grabbing snap of fresh rye grains. Lonely drip of lightly sweet caramel. Spicy, sparsely grassy hops with a small amount of bitterness. Little kick of diacetyl. Drying, loosely spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: CIMP presents a few tasty twists on the style without losing sight of the pilsner paradigm. Amply quaffable, says I!

12oz bottle from a sampler pack at BevMo. Pours a clear deep gold with a frothy white head. Nice nose of grassy hops and cereal grain. A damn tasty Pils....

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. ("The Chosen Spot") Pours amber-gold with a soft, white head. Lots of biscuit and caramel malt in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with a dynmic bready character, and finishes with subtle hops. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Pretty good.

GodOfThunder (1244) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draft at Ravenous Pig, Orlando. Straight biscuit malt in the aroma with light caramel. Flavor is caramel and grassy hops. This ain’t your momma’s pils. Pretty good.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2010
A light golden pour with white head. It has a mostly bready malt aroma with some faint hop notes. The taste is crisp and mildly sweet followed by a slightly bitter finish. The texture is a little watery.

Nickls (1765) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Light orangey gold color and poured with a generous frothy white cap. Some noticeable rising carbonation. Minerally and a little earthy; bit of grain; pretty muted actually. Clean, dry earthy hoppiness; just OK and nothing too oustanding in terms of hop presence or other character. Lightish; very dry which is great for the style and added to the refreshing qualities of the brew. Solid enough; the dry nature made up for some of its other lackings. Overall, not a terrible example, but just above average to me.
