Coney Island - Sword Swallower Steel Hop Lager

Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Coney Island
Sword Swallower Steel Hop Lager
Shmaltz Brewing
New York, USA
Est. 1996 (5757 Hebrew Metonic Cycle)

Brain Damage Quotient = 6.8 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 22.0

Postmortem Brew Review
Clear copper color.
ice spicy hop aroma up front and malted barley background.
Minimal bubbly head on pour.
Malty and hoppy taste.  Well balanced between the two.
Negligible lacing on the glass.
Medium bodied mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Not as big in ABV as the Human Blockhead, but huge in hops and malt flavor.  A great lager beer that has 8 different hops and 4 different malts in concert with one another.  And they make beautiful music together, I must say.

This is a lager like no other you may have tried.  It will not leave you lagging with a dry tongue.  And if you like your hops, you will appreciate this lager beer. You won't confuse it with a pale ale, nor an IPA, but you will put down your regular lager and take notice.

Gotta love the artwork on these big 22 oz. bottles.  You can almost smell the midway if you close your eyes!
