3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Cha Cha’s before the Furthur show. Aroma of rye, roasted corn, grass. High, prickly carbonation which carries the spicy rye and somewhat astringent hops very well. Very dry and hoppy finish. Great spicy rye palate. Works well.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Liked the label a whole lot but was somewhat disappointed overall. Nothing here is outstanding outside of a nice crisp taste on the nose and finish. Sure hope the rest of the sampler case is better.

Tap at Oblivion for Coney Island/Schmaltz day. Nose is rye, bread, pale malt, hay. Pour is golden with a white fluffy head. Taste is similar with tons of toasted rye, bread, and lightly bitter hops. Not bad for pils.

Proper glassware courtesy of Oblivion Taproom. Fuggin. Toasted rye is well integrated into the aroma, with hints of lemon and hops. The taste was light and crisp, some caramel and pineapple tickle the senses while fresh hops fill the mouth with a light dryness. The finish is dry as well, but the rye makes it much more enjoyable.

Smells like a urinal cake, this beer is atrocious. I don't even want to write anymore...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a nice light gold. Very mild aroma of yeast and pepper. A soft rye bite covers up the usual sweet malts leaving a slightly bitter aftertaste. Refreshing

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a clear gold with thick frothy white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is wheat grass and hay. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet corn malt and crisp finish. Easy to drink a very good pilsner from Coney Island.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, received gratis from the brewery. Thanks, folks! I think I’ve tried this once before in a previous incarnation and, as with a number of their other lagers, it was pretty coarse. Current version is an improvement. Pours a brilliantly clear, deep golden color headed towards orange land; fine-bubbled white head with solid lacing. Mineral and fruity aroma, with a juicy orange note that’s dropped off slightly from it’s presence in a bottle from a week ago (that one just popped with fresh oranges); Pils malt well expressed, touch of spicy hops, nicely crisp. Medium body; medium-high to high CO2; a nice sharp jolt of carbonation at the tip of the tongue; rounded mouthfeel, showing mineral and fruity bitterness, just a touch of assertive rye (nothing coarse like earlier versions as I remember them); a solid, assertive, rounded lager with a pillowy Pils-malt middle. First bottle was even better, so drink up. Toasty, dry finish, with just enough lingering mineral bitterness.
