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!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 5/19/2010 Source:Commercial Taphouse) Light spicy hop aroma. Very slight chill haze orange golden with small white head. Medium body and mouth. Moderately fruity with pineapple citrus hop notes. Pilsner with a American hop profile. Okay.

Suttree (5591) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2010
If I hadn’t been perusing the tap list for a new tick, I probably wouldn’t’ve found this beer, and that would’ve been a shame. Very enjoyable. Spicy and sweet, with an odd flavor I couldn’t quite pinpoint. I see here that rye was involved, so I suppose that could explain it. Very tasty beer.

mansquito (4207) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2010
The Half Pint, NY ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma of grain, hops, and some sweetness. This is certainly no super dry German pilsener (even though it was dry-hopped), instead it was somewhat sweet (no surprise that a lot of people are speculating about the corn... but maybe it was the rye). There is moderate hops, but not in a really interesting way. I mean it is a very drinkable beer, which is not at all offensive, but then again not all that great.

Draught. Poured a cloudy yellow gold. Mild head. Hops arma and dominates the taste.

ben4321 (4830) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Location: Draft at the Rattle ‘n Hum, 10/8/10

Aroma: The nose has some crackers, lemon, herbs, yeast, and floral notes
Appearance: This is a clear golden colored beer with a nice white head and solid lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet malts, lemon, spice, and balanced by some floral hops
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a crisp "pils" feel to it and a good drinkability
Overall Impression: This turned out to be a pretty solid Pils. It has a nice look, and a decent flavor. Drinkable and somewhat enjoyable. Nothing special, but not lacking much either.

rader58 (823) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Pours a clear golden color. Aroma of grain, dough and caramel. Flavor is grain and grass. Very clean and smooth. Very refreshing. One of the best Pilseners I have tasted and I don’t like pilseners! This has a bit more hops and character than others.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
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 (3016) - 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.

thornecb (4872) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2010
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.
