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!

On tap at redlight redlight. Pours golden yellow with a little bubbly head. Pleasant nose with hints of grass and straw under the hops. Subtle sweetness and nice hops in the flavor. Little lingering with touches of hay and a slight citrus. Not a horrible beer, but nothing meant to savor. Good session style pilsner.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Serving: Draft at Fireworks.
It pours a light gold color with a small, foamy white head. The head doesnít stick around long and leaves no lacing behind. The nose is very light with notes of grain and florals. The taste is unremarkable but clean with the grain, florlas, and a mild hop bitterness coming through. Not offensive, just not great either. Light body with average carbonation and a short, clean finish. It comes across as BMC competition or a brew for the casual summer cookout. Easy drinking and sessionable but not memorable at all.

bottle listed as 5.5%. Pours an orange gold with nice frothy white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, with rye notes, cayenne pepper, biscuit like malt, cajun. Flavor is spicy hops, not much malt, with a bitterness on the finish I find a bit astringent. Not bad, but wonít be back. Probably better on draft.

Ok pilsner. This is good for a pilsner obvious hops are dry hoped.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle via Beer World: Rye dominant with the familiar dry tang tone throughout. Decent amber in the glass. Poor nose. The six other types of malt are lost to me since they were in mediocre amount to change anything. It wasnít the siren song that intrigued me, it was that word Pilsener......which this is pretty darn far from.

fluffy (1676) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
while the description seems to emphasize the hops, i didnt really get an overtly hoppy flavor here. which is fine by me as im not into hop bombs. i think maybe the rye balanced it out, which im a big fan of. some toffee and butterscotch notes with a mild woody earthy note throughout. the finish is a bit off balanced and odd, but not unpleasant. id like to try this again sometime.

Aroma: Basic pilsner malt smell with a touch of breadiness App: Clear gold with a nice, medium white head for a pilsner. Not much lacing Taste: Sweet with some floral tasting hops, not very bitter. Can barely taste the rye. Palate: small lingering bitterness, nice effect

(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear light gold, wispy white bubbles. Nose is funky, banana extract, some odd fruity/earthy flavors. Taste of earth, cracker, really buttery which takes away from it, funky, not my favorite.

On draft. No aroma. Sudsy lace. Flavor is under-hopped, a blast of spicy rye malts and then a dissolve. Average.

Fairly standard lager-pilsner. Malty aroma with a bit of citrus. Light to medium bitterness, some biscuit flavor. Not bad, but pretty average all around - was hoping for something a little better.
