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!

zach8270 (3904) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2009
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma is dry and lightly bitter with some sweet and fruity hints. Flavor is a nice pils flavor. Dry and floral at the beginning with some hoppy bitterness, a smooth and lightly sweet middle, and a very lightly bitter and lingering finish.

Nickls (2023) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Light orangey gold color and poured with a generous frothy white cap. Some noticeable rising carbonation. Minerally and a little earthy; bit of grain; pretty muted actually. Clean, dry earthy hoppiness; just OK and nothing too oustanding in terms of hop presence or other character. Lightish; very dry which is great for the style and added to the refreshing qualities of the brew. Solid enough; the dry nature made up for some of its other lackings. Overall, not a terrible example, but just above average to me.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2010
12oz bottle from Whole Foods, Durham. Ever open a beer without even the faintest hiss of carbonation? Me too. This one. Dark copper pour, basically looks like an amber lager rather than a pilsener. The nose is nice, fairly sharp and well hopped. The mouthfeel is obviously quite lacking, but the flavors - with some rye, spice, and nice peppery hops - are still detectable. I’d give this another shot, with the hope that some carbonation would yield better results.

probstblueribbon (3351) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Bomber from BOTW (Rochester), shared with GRM and Lubiere, served cold in a tulip glass. 05AU11.

App.: Clear very deep golden/light amber with a white rim. Aroma: A good whiff of apple juice, grainy, dusty, other vague fruits, sort of an odd bitter note, maybe lightly floral and perfumed, slight spiciness, a bit tight. Palate: Medium body and effervescence. Flav.: Quite fruity, perfumed, a bit of rye spiciness, some floral hops, grainy, almost mashy, cooked cereal, better than the nose, dry with decent bitterness and a perfumed, apple finish.

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.

rougeau13 (2237) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 Clear golden with a white head. Some lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt, rye, floral and spicy hops. Taste is mostly pilsner malt and some rye, with the hops imparting a mild bitterness. Medium bodied, pretty crisp.

Cirrhosis (1271) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Crystal clear gold with a limited white cap. Apple metallic with grainy malts, some not so good elements of Eastern Europe are showing through in the nose. Taste is exactly the same as the aroma. Grassy, grainy, noble hops............the Batman is distracting me.

ExpendableHero (787) - Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Hazy golden beer with a white head. Aromas of grassy hops, and some toasted scents. Tastes of grassy/floral hops, some hints of toffee, light caramel, and toasted grains. Finishes on a slightly bitter hop note. Toasted, grainy, and a bit watery. Very smooth, and quite refreshing. A flavorful pilsener, I like it.

Pours gold with decent head. Not much of a nose...mostly malt, maybe a touch of orange peel. Taste of malt and some bitterness. Light, simple, good, but nothing memorable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
