3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...
