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!

Clean, crisp pilsener that is lightly unfiltered resulting in a beautiful swirling head. Spicy, peppery and pure tasting.

Excellent golden amber pils. The boldness of the rye enhances the spiciness. Bitter hops give hints of coriander and citrus. The stable mouthfeel lingers.

12oz bottle, received gratis from the brewery. Thanks, folks! I think I’ve tried this once before in a previous incarnation and, as with a number of their other lagers, it was pretty coarse. Current version is an improvement. Pours a brilliantly clear, deep golden color headed towards orange land; fine-bubbled white head with solid lacing. Mineral and fruity aroma, with a juicy orange note that’s dropped off slightly from it’s presence in a bottle from a week ago (that one just popped with fresh oranges); Pils malt well expressed, touch of spicy hops, nicely crisp. Medium body; medium-high to high CO2; a nice sharp jolt of carbonation at the tip of the tongue; rounded mouthfeel, showing mineral and fruity bitterness, just a touch of assertive rye (nothing coarse like earlier versions as I remember them); a solid, assertive, rounded lager with a pillowy Pils-malt middle. First bottle was even better, so drink up. Toasty, dry finish, with just enough lingering mineral bitterness.

Pour is a nice light gold. Very mild aroma of yeast and pepper. A soft rye bite covers up the usual sweet malts leaving a slightly bitter aftertaste. Refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed with Adam whilst waiting in line at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. The beer is copper hued and transparent with a quarter inch of white head. Definitely smells like a pils. Nice and malty with a touch of hops in the finish. Nothing amazing, but fun to tick while I await my BBQ. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2009 Bottle of The Chosen Spot- Thanks Eyedrinkale! Pours clear orangeg with a small white head...aroma is full of rye spice and sweet citrus fruit, light hops and honey?...flavour is similar, sweet and grainy, much more rye in the nose than in the taste, but nicely fresh and bitter, sweet grass...finish is a bit hoppier and rounds it out nicely!

12oz bottle from a sampler pack at BevMo. Pours a clear deep gold with a frothy white head. Nice nose of grassy hops and cereal grain. A damn tasty Pils....

Ratman197 (10922) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of rye, earthiness, carmel, light pine and light grapefruit zest. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, earthiness, orange zest, light grapefruit zest and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering moderatly bitter finish.

If I hadn’t been perusing the tap list for a new tick, I probably wouldn’t’ve found this beer, and that would’ve been a shame. Very enjoyable. Spicy and sweet, with an odd flavor I couldn’t quite pinpoint. I see here that rye was involved, so I suppose that could explain it. Very tasty beer.
