Bottle from Wine Warehouse. Amber color with a medium quickly disappearing head. Nice floral, pine hop aroma with sweetness to balance. Taste is a slightly metallic take on the same. Medium body. Not bad.

Bottle... Clear golden ale with a big, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Spicy and peppery, metallic nose. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Medium to heavy metallic bitterness. Lengthy, bitter, nickel/steel finish. Appropriately named!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is of crisp floral hops and a good helping of malts. Flavor is biscuit malts with some grain and a bit of pepper. Finish is thick with a bit of the alcohol. Basically its just a heavier lager but it does work. Good enough for a try.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’ve really enjoyed these coney island lager products...until now - this one just doesn’t come together very well - fizzy clear golden beer - minimal head - the aroma is promising, with complex, hearty grains and sweet malts that give the impression of bread drizzled with honey - some bright fruity character underneath - fairly smooth mouthfeel - a little syrupy, though - there is a lot of honey sweetness up front, and fairly strong grain flavors, which are followed by somewhat potent bitterness - they used far too many different hops in this one, and it results in a hop flavor that is neither well-balanced, nor well integrated - this, coupled with the high sweetness, results in a beer that pulls off the astounding feat of being both too sweet and too bitter at the same time - I suppose I should give them props for that - thanks, schmaltz!
