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!

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 (851) - 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 (737) - 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...

Draft->pilsener at Industry Standard in Greenport. Golden yellow with big frothy white head. Pretty standard pils hops and grains, lite spice. Eh.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is a little off for the style, a slightly weird Fruity Pebbles like note over a minimal hop note and some mild sweetness. Doesn’t exactly smell like the best Pilsner. The flavor is just as off as the aroma was letting on. It’s weirdly fruity with a cereal graininess and minimal bitterness. I look for bready, clean, and a significant hop presence in a Pilsner, this has none of those. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation and a slight stickiness on the back end. Piss poor effort with this one.

ACHops (1084) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2015
On tap @ Shade Bar. Pours light golden with medium white head that fades quickly. Aroma is crisp fresh malt, light rye notes. Taste is similar - clean, crisp, and cracker dry on the finish. Some light hops come through as well. Very nice pilsner.
