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 donít have scurvy, you donít need a lime!

ALLOVATE (2336) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2012
The premise to this one sounds interesting but the end result is a little off key. Unexciting pour results in a flaccid, short-lived foam atop a shimmering medium amber body. Heady aroma offers promise. Spicy, resinous and dry hop dominated nose with the rye integrated nicely. A touch of burnt sugar, treesap and rubber offers no support. Frothed up cream is the mouthfeel with ill-pronounced flavours of blood oranges, tangerines and peach. There is a hint of spice to the tail; a firm bitterness peaks then drops off to little at all. Dry, light bodied and fleeting in flavour though the hop bitterness remains. For some reason this one dwindles as it warms rather than open up. Went down with ease but the buildup far outweighed the product! (12fl.Oz, 5.5% ABV, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

kidmartinek (3513) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Yellow with a 1/4" white head. Smells like on of those kiddy play traps where adults go drink beer (i.e. pandamonium (trmg), chuck Eís). The mouthfeel is extra foamy. The taste is pilsnery, in other words skunky, grassy, hay, freely, etc.

This didnít really do much. No real flavours or anything going on. Easy to drink but nothing exciting.

A pretty bland pilsner. Missing something, maybe to bitter for a pilsner. Some harsh off flavors are present as well.

Not a bad pilsner. Not real malty but ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Pours orange in color with a two finger off-white head. Faint aroma of rye, pils malts, bread and grass. Flavor is sweet bready malts, rye, grassy hops and light citrus with a crisp dry finish.

On draft at Coney Island, poured very cold into a big red cup. Cereal nose with a good amount of hops behind it. Taste had hops up front with a cereal finish. Kinda hard to review out of a plastic cup but is a beer I would order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2012
On tap at my farewell to NY party at Blind Tiger. Clear gold pour with standard white head. Has a blend of diacetyl, farts, and wheat. Buttery and slightly grainy finish. Damn, this sucks.

Huhzubendah (2405) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Enjoyed with Adam whilst waiting in line at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. The beer is copper hued and transparent with a quarter inch of white head. Definitely smells like a pils. Nice and malty with a touch of hops in the finish. Nothing amazing, but fun to tick while I await my BBQ. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thirdeye11 (5484) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2012
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear light gold, wispy white bubbles. Nose is funky, banana extract, some odd fruity/earthy flavors. Taste of earth, cracker, really buttery which takes away from it, funky, not my favorite.
