Coney Island "Sword Swallower"
Shmaltz Brewing Company - Brooklyn, New York USA
IPA Lager (ABV 6.8%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that did have good retention along with some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of mild grain and bread malts, floral and pine hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was a light bitter sweet with a with a nice malty feel and a note of caramel in the beginning then became moderately bitter and piney with a note of citrus at the end. The flavor faded quickly and was mostly about the hops.

Mouthfeel was just a hair above light in body with a watery dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall a pretty decent IPA that has a nice strong hoppiness and a mild Lager feel...
