3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice clear golden color with a nice white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma was fairly mild but did have nice bread malts and a slight hint of rye. Hops were mostly grassy. Flavor had good bread notes, there was a nice bitterness/spicy flavor which could have been the hops or rye or both. Had good balance and was easy to drink. A nice crisp finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Burger Tap Shake DC, pours a clear dark yellow with some foamy, white head. Nose is a bit trashy, some corn, lemon, straw, cheap malt. Flavor has none of the rye I hoped for, more corn, light grist, lemon, straw, garbage. Watery finish. Woof.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear golden, small white head. Aroma is grainy malts and light citrus and herbal hops. The taste is spicy, bready, sweet malts, balanced with a earthy, grassy, floral hoppiness. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

Meh. Overhopped as usual from any American smaller brewer--it does have some malt elements but itís a pale ale by any European palate. Not really recommended

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE TASTED: December 23, 2015... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsener...OCCASION: prepping for Episode VII with Episode II--patience in viewing... APPEARANCE: glistening gold body that displays a cascade of bubbles... snow-white head measures two fingers, with a coral ring topping off a half-inch sustained spongy base--attractive... AROMA: Saaz and rye form an immediate, sharp cheese, aromatic flowers, and subtle pepper... the requisite biscuit is smooth and alluring, fresh and balanced...PALATE: a rather flat, slightly textured sip; mild body; dry and beefy at the finish, with a diminishing return at the throat....sessionable but on the watery side...TASTE: the initial flirtation of flowery hops gives way to a less developed, weak malt is moderately flavorful...a thin profile that only reflects the rye with some undercurrents of pepper, with apple and pear making a light, late appearance..OVERALL: the flavor does not deliver what the aroma portends...unfamiliar with Coney Island, I am not encouraged by this attempt, but at least the beer is drinkable, low in ABV, and attractive in a few aspects...

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is a little off for the style, a slightly weird Fruity Pebbles like note over a minimal hop note and some mild sweetness. Doesnít exactly smell like the best Pilsner. The flavor is just as off as the aroma was letting on. Itís weirdly fruity with a cereal graininess and minimal bitterness. I look for bready, clean, and a significant hop presence in a Pilsner, this has none of those. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation and a slight stickiness on the back end. Piss poor effort with this one.

On tap @ Shade Bar. Pours light golden with medium white head that fades quickly. Aroma is crisp fresh malt, light rye notes. Taste is similar - clean, crisp, and cracker dry on the finish. Some light hops come through as well. Very nice pilsner.
