Coming out of New York’s Shmaltz Brewing Company comes their “Coney Island Sword Swallower IPL” an India Pale Lager. This is only the second India Pale Lager I have tried to this point and so far so good. The beer pours a lager yellow with a fluffy white head. The aroma of the beer is quite hopy with some citrus and malts mixed in. The flavour of the beer is of citrus and sweet malts with a heavy hops hit of an India Pale Ale but with more of a lager like taste. This was a very nice tasting beer and I am looking forward to trying more beer in this different style.
Oh ya this brewery has amazing labels!
