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!

Slipstream (1976) - USA - JAN 8, 2010
Fairly standard lager-pilsner. Malty aroma with a bit of citrus. Light to medium bitterness, some biscuit flavor. Not bad, but pretty average all around - was hoping for something a little better.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Crisp hop aroma, grassy, earthy hops with hints of a spiciness. Pours clear golden blonde with a very thick white head. Earthy bitter hops with grassy notes, solid bitterness, with hints of sweet malts lingering with a spicy dry finish. Very nice pils!

BREWMUSKCLES (2191) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2009
nice and refreshing it has the hop character and spiciness of an American dry hoppend rye brew. it is refreshing and just a touch sweet (MAYBE TWO TOUCHES). it has some of the characters of an American Pilsener just spill some and wait few minutes and give it a sniff. it" smells like an old bar but this beer is quite impressive otherwise. Grapefruit hops in the spicy Pils presence this is a real good session ale for the choosey. $4.99 for a 22 oz bottle at whole foods in Manhattan ? hey that’s schmaltz!

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma is dry and lightly bitter with some sweet and fruity hints. Flavor is a nice pils flavor. Dry and floral at the beginning with some hoppy bitterness, a smooth and lightly sweet middle, and a very lightly bitter and lingering finish.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2009
On tap at Dave’s Cold Beer and Soda in Bellport. Pours a pale gold with a thin linen white head. The aroma is quite subdued with a few notes of malt and just a bit of grassy hops and that’s about it. The flavor is mild malt but with a more assertive dose of grassy hops than the aroma presented. Nice crisp refreshing finish. As an aside, I like that this beer honors the annual Coney Island mermaid parade.

On tap at Rattle N Hum
Appearance: pale golden brew with mid top. 3-
Nose: Aromatic , light floral nose , sweet feel , pleasant with citric touch. 6+
Flavor/Palate : Soft base with rougher frontal citric bitterness. Hop character felt bit miss paired to malt. Perhaps it was to thin. I can see what they tried to accomplish, not a bad idea but for that you need rounder soft malts as base.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Draft. Pours gold with a while head. Light malty aroma with some nice grassy hop notes. The flavor is well balanced, but on the bland side. Hop notes are lighter in the flavor than on the nose. Not bad.
