COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mermaids, those mysterious aquatic lovelies, have popped up all over the world in legend since 1000 BC. No scientific evidence has ever surfaced to support their existence, but we’re not ones to argue with folklore.

The aroma is malty, hoppy, and slightly yeasty. There are notes of biscuits, corn, flowers, soap, and cake. The appearance is golden with a large head. The taste is pretty simple with just bitter hops and bread like malt. The palate is average. Overall a pretty good beer but not wonderful.

[Tap] Pours a bright golden color with a nice cap of white head. Grassy nose features fresh, crisp hops and clean grains. The taste is surprisingly true to style for a North German pilsner. Grassy bitterness is mixed with an touch of astringency. Lively carbonation. The rye malt provided a nice kick that blended well with the hop profile. Tasty and unique.

I really need to try to set aside style designation here when I try to rate this, but it will be difficult considering that this is nowhere close to being a pils, aside from the fact that it is a lager - "hey guys, let’s make a beer with seven different malts (two of which are rye) and four hops (none of which are typically associated with pilsners) and market it as a pils" - fuck that - the beauty of a pils is in its simplicity, guys - anyway - hazy straw - aroma is light honey, toasted grains, light Vienna richness, lightly spicy rye - flavor is strongly husky/grainy and moderately bitter - earthy, American hop profile - a honey sweetness through the tail end and finish - herbal, tea-like character - too much apparent alcohol in the finish - drinkable, with no glaring flaws, but NOT a pilsner.

beerguy101 (5357) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Sampled on 6/10/2011. This pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 120z bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal and grassy, fruity and slightly sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. The malts are cereal and grainy. The hops are earthy and spicy. Lively carbonation. A decent pilsner, it doesn’t seem to have any of those adjunct flavors. Crisp and clean tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Pours cloudy gold with good effervescence & pillowy white head. Medium basement & hay aromas; medium-bodied with grain and hay flavors & malty ovetones but good effervesence. Nice balance, good finish. Not as crisp as some pilsners, but that’s probably why I like it.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2011
bottle listed as 5.5%. Pours an orange gold with nice frothy white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, with rye notes, cayenne pepper, biscuit like malt, cajun. Flavor is spicy hops, not much malt, with a bitterness on the finish I find a bit astringent. Not bad, but won’t be back. Probably better on draft.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2011
Draft. Pours a golden amber, darker than a pilsner normally is, with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is bready and slightly sweet with lots of floral, spicy hops. Flavor is fairly malty with some fruitiness and a rye tang and a good hop bite that accentuates the rye. Light body. It’s not quite a pils, but I like it.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
$7.99 growler filled about 20 minutes ago from Brew York (inside Duane Reed on 72nd and Broadway). Clear medium amber (darker than what a pils should be) with a creamy one finger very light taupe, fading to a thick film within a minute or two. A small head does rouse, but fades just the same. Aroma of cracker malt and some toastiness as well, light fruity yeast. Flavor had some light fruity yeast along with some cracker bready malts, light honey sweetness. Minimal hay notes. Lightly sweet finish with bitterness peaking at a 2. Soft carbonation with a light to medium body. Not bad (or flawed) other than it not being a pils, A little bit of a letdown for me.

Dfonorow (2039) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Pours a clear golden color with a decently sized bubbly white head. The head quickly fades and leaves good lacing. Aroma is of bready yeast and spicy hops, nothing else is really getting through. Flavor is of grass, hay, spices, and a touch of sweetness in the finish. Not bad, but not great.
