Coney Island Mermaid Pilsener

Review #2400.
16 oz pint, on tap at Taco Mac, Woodstock, GA, USA.
Golden pour that produces some nice lace despite the head fading fairly fast. Carbonation is medium.
Nose delivers an unusual combination of a decent Pils-like bite of hops, but also a sweet background to the beer. The sweetness is the thing that stays with me which would normally make me a little unhappy, but the fact that there IS a decent dose of hop bitterness too, helps me to enjoy this beer a little more than I thought I might. Then sweetness comes with a touch of fruit, a bit like some peach infused soda.
Smooth in the mouth, the carbonation seems just right.
A simple beer that doesn’t really encapsulate a typical German Pils, but it is drinkable and an excellent offering to open up some eyes for crossover potential.
