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!

JoeMcPhee (8569) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Bottle of Chosen Spot. Pale golden pour with a massive sticky white head. The nose is really great. Big, bright clean rye spiciness with a load of lemony, zesty Saaz hops. A bit of amarillo fruitiness and even a touch of mintiness as well. Very, very fragrant with all of the lemony spicy hoppiness. Lingering spicy bitterness on the finish. This beer is really damn good. A rock solid take on the pilsner style. I really enjoyed this. Tap at Rattle N Hum. Crystal clear golden pour. Thick white head. Aroma is nice... light crackery malts with a soft herbal hoppy note. Fairly floral and fresh tasting. Soft hoppy bitterness with a lingering floral note. It’s definitely got enough hops to notice them in there. Moderate bitterness. Good balance. Nice and clean with a firm bitter finish. Nice summer quaffer. 7 3 7 3 13

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at the Brass Tap in Wesley Chapel, FL. Pours up deep gold with off white head. The aroma is fresh grains, toffee and spiciness. The taste begins and continues with yummy spices, rye and then picking up malty grains, toffee and then a mix of caramel malts and lager-y yeast creating a butterscotch type feel.

BVery (6974) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Clear light orange pour with a small bu soapy white head. A little bit of rye in the aroma. Crisp and clean with a bit of hop, spice, and rye. Not bad.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2010
Tap @ OTH. Pours golden, white head. Aroma, smells like wort, lots of grain and malt goodness. Flavor, load of rye?, really nothing I would expect fro a pilsner, plenty of malts quickly followed by some citrus hops and light spicy mouthfeel. Profile retain a mild caramel malt approach with a nice clean finish.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 20, 2009
On tap at Rattle N Hum
Appearance: pale golden brew with mid top. 3-
Nose: Aromatic , light floral nose , sweet feel , pleasant with citric touch. 6+
Flavor/Palate : Soft base with rougher frontal citric bitterness. Hop character felt bit miss paired to malt. Perhaps it was to thin. I can see what they tried to accomplish, not a bad idea but for that you need rounder soft malts as base.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Draft. Pours gold with a while head. Light malty aroma with some nice grassy hop notes. The flavor is well balanced, but on the bland side. Hop notes are lighter in the flavor than on the nose. Not bad.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells of crisp pilsner malt, some skunky hints. Tastes of dry pilsner malt, grassy, some peppery hints on the finish.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, hay, bread, caramel, floral and slightly grassy hops and some vegetal notes. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, a note of honey, finishes with some bitter hops. Medium-bodied. Kinda OK.
