Sunday Night Suds - Coney Island Brewery Mermaid Pilsner

This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Coney Island Brewery Mermaid Pilsner.

To first answer the questions which I am sure you are dying to ask, no they don't make this beer out of real mermaids and no, I don't have a clue why Coney Island has linked mermaids with pilsners.

Having gotten that out of the way, I can tell you that as pilsners go, this is a pretty good version. The beer poured a full golden yellow with decent carbonation and some lacing which faded quickly.

As opposed to most pilsners, this beer did have some floral hops which I appreciated and enjoyed. There was even a bit of a sharpness to the brew, although I would chalk that up to the rye malts.

This beer would be a decent pairing with most foods - the flavor is not strong enough to say that it would mesh well with any food, but it would not clash either. Call it a parve brew.

The Coney Island Brewery Mermaid Pilsner is certified kosher by the Star-K, although not every beer brewed by Coney Island is currently on the LOC. To view and download the LOC for Boston Beer which includes Coney Island (as well as Angry Orchard) click here
