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 donít have scurvy, you donít need a lime!

Tap at RnH. Thick, sweaty, terribly flawed flavor. Very sweet, with only a mild hopping. Way off base. The nose has some nice German hops.

mansquito (3581) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2010
The Half Pint, NY ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma of grain, hops, and some sweetness. This is certainly no super dry German pilsener (even though it was dry-hopped), instead it was somewhat sweet (no surprise that a lot of people are speculating about the corn... but maybe it was the rye). There is moderate hops, but not in a really interesting way. I mean it is a very drinkable beer, which is not at all offensive, but then again not all that great.

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.
