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!

Draft. Amazing appearance aroma is meh. Lacing is top notch. Some rye flavor which helps. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (1120) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow with small white foamy head that dissipates quickly, hops aroma, crisp sweetish taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. Not bad for a pilsner.

Pours cloudy gold with good effervescence & pillowy white head. Medium basement & hay aromas; medium-bodied with grain and hay flavors & malty ovetones but good effervesence. Nice balance, good finish. Not as crisp as some pilsners, but that’s probably why I like it.

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.

Bottle from my sister for my birthday. Brilliant orange pour with decent rocky white head. Grainy aromas with earthy grassy hop aromas. Flavours are slightly sweet with subtle hop finish. Nice easy drinking beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was pale golden, almost like apple juice or dehydrated urine. About an inch of head. Healthy amount of lacing. Lots of film on the sides, which stayed throughout the pour. Smelled of citrus and pine hops. Some light cereal malts in there, too, but citrus rules the day. A bit surprising for a pilsner. Different taste than the nose, really a different taste than a pilsner. Watery, smooth start, which gave way to a very slight bitter finish. Medium body. Texture ??? Lively carbonation. Smooth feel with a non-descript, but somehow decent finish. I really liked this beer, especially after having the Albino Python first. Still didn’t taste like a pilsner to me, but a good beer.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear honey color with average white head and a little lacing. Aroma is not strong, but has plenty of grainy bread, some lemon, caramel, and a touch of floral hops. Not skunky at all, unlike some of the best green-bottled European pilseners. Taste is initially on the sweet side with a slightly bitter finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Quite refreshing although nothing close to outrageous. This one exceeded my expectations.

12 oz bottle. Surprisingly good pilsner. Light hops on the nose, but a nice hop bite and a clean finish. Well crafted, tasty. I don’t have anything else to say.
