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!

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

Appearance: Delivered to me a light, clear, copper-hued body with a modest-sized, white head. Limited lacing on the way down. Smell: Light maltiness embodied by a grainy, bready presence and rounded out with hints of caramel and piquant rye. Spicy-scented hops are simply whelming. A bit of time and warmth rouses a hint of buttery diacetyl on the nose and in the taste. Taste: Lightly bready malts with an attention-grabbing snap of fresh rye grains. Lonely drip of lightly sweet caramel. Spicy, sparsely grassy hops with a small amount of bitterness. Little kick of diacetyl. Drying, loosely spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: CIMP presents a few tasty twists on the style without losing sight of the pilsner paradigm. Amply quaffable, says I!

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with white head. Taste zesty hops, floral, slightly sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz at Toad in the Hole. Gold with low but lasting head. Mild honey and malt aroma. Aggressive carbonation drives flavors of pils malt and sweet grapes. Sharp bitterness falls away quickly on the finish. Bigger body than its close competitors or its abv would indicate.

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.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Crisp hop aroma, grassy, earthy hops with hints of a spiciness. Pours clear golden blonde with a very thick white head. Earthy bitter hops with grassy notes, solid bitterness, with hints of sweet malts lingering with a spicy dry finish. Very nice pils!

GodOfThunder (1244) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draft at Ravenous Pig, Orlando. Straight biscuit malt in the aroma with light caramel. Flavor is caramel and grassy hops. This ain’t your momma’s pils. Pretty good.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
12oz bottle. Dark amber with a light but lasting head. Aroma is herbal orange vanilla doughy melting pot that forms a common scent with a zesty citrus finish. Strong citrus hop bite and strong malt flavour. Strong citrus finish with a spruce side An IPL might be the cloest style comparison. India Pale Lager?

BREWMUSKCLES (2155) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2009
nice and refreshing it has the hop character and spiciness of an American dry hoppend rye brew. it is refreshing and just a touch sweet (MAYBE TWO TOUCHES). it has some of the characters of an American Pilsener just spill some and wait few minutes and give it a sniff. it" smells like an old bar but this beer is quite impressive otherwise. Grapefruit hops in the spicy Pils presence this is a real good session ale for the choosey. $4.99 for a 22 oz bottle at whole foods in Manhattan ? hey that’s schmaltz!
