look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a good golden beer, with a reasonable head that soon diminishes.

S: Not much smell, but nothing unpleasant either.

T: Nice, I think sums it up well. Nice, as in nothing exciting, but better than your average mass produced lagers. The hops are a lot more present than your average Lager, but not especially distinctive, just more present, In no way too bitter though. Good balance with a little nod to the malt.

M: As most Lagers, a little sharp for my palette.

O: I drink a fair bit of Lager, and have since I was young. I am however more inclined towards Ale. I was really quite excited to dry this Coney Island Lager, and was hoping it would sway me towards Lagers. However, whilst I enjoyed it, It was nothing to get excited about at all. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if it was reasonably priced on tap and there was nothing in the way of Ale, I'd tuck in. If you are used to drinking bud and the likes this may be a revolution, but if you've tried a few other beers, this will probably be nothing other than mediocre.

Overall there are much better beers out there, and this was sadly disappointing.
