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.

hainer (19) - New York, USA - APR 26, 2012
Excellent golden amber pils. The boldness of the rye enhances the spiciness. Bitter hops give hints of coriander and citrus. The stable mouthfeel lingers.

It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass. The label has a nice easy to read freshness date and a brief deScription of the beer. Appearance: The body has a deep golden color with good clarity and some visible carbonation flowing up to an average inch thick head ot foam. The head fades slowly and leaves a little bit of sticky lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is mostly bready and sweet with some light cereal grain mixed in. The hops add of touch of herbal and citrus notes as well. Taste / Palate: It has a solid foundation of bready and biscuity maltiness with a touch of spice. The hops add there expected herbal bitterness and citrusy brightness. The feel and palate is solid and full for the style. Overall it is a very enjoyable Pilsner.

nimbleprop (6865) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2016
On tap at Burger Tap Shake DC, pours a clear dark yellow with some foamy, white head. Nose is a bit trashy, some corn, lemon, straw, cheap malt. Flavor has none of the rye I hoped for, more corn, light grist, lemon, straw, garbage. Watery finish. Woof.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear golden, small white head. Aroma is grainy malts and light citrus and herbal hops. The taste is spicy, bready, sweet malts, balanced with a earthy, grassy, floral hoppiness. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

ectuohy27 (938) - ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
Meh. Overhopped as usual from any American smaller brewer--it does have some malt elements but it’s a pale ale by any European palate. Not really recommended

DandyWolfFloyd (977) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Aroma - dank and minor Saaz hops. Appearance - the body is pale yellow, the head is 1" and holds tight. Taste - nice dank, floral, and minor Saaz spiced hops. Palate - medium body, lively carbonation, and dry slightly spiced bitters.

Dacrza (773) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 23, 2015... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsener...OCCASION: prepping for Episode VII with Episode II--patience in viewing... APPEARANCE: glistening gold body that displays a cascade of bubbles... snow-white head measures two fingers, with a coral ring topping off a half-inch sustained spongy base--attractive... AROMA: Saaz and rye form an immediate, sharp cheese, aromatic flowers, and subtle pepper... the requisite biscuit is smooth and alluring, fresh and balanced...PALATE: a rather flat, slightly textured sip; mild body; dry and beefy at the finish, with a diminishing return at the throat....sessionable but on the watery side...TASTE: the initial flirtation of flowery hops gives way to a less developed, weak malt is moderately flavorful...a thin profile that only reflects the rye with some undercurrents of pepper, with apple and pear making a light, late appearance..OVERALL: the flavor does not deliver what the aroma portends...unfamiliar with Coney Island, I am not encouraged by this attempt, but at least the beer is drinkable, low in ABV, and attractive in a few aspects...
