In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce together and refrigerate until ready to use. In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees. In another bowl, mix the beer, egg, 1 C. flour, cornstarch, and coriander. Mix until it's smooth. Season with salt and pepper, then set it aside.

Dry the calamari well with a paper towel. Coat them with the remaining 1/2 C. flour. Coat a few rings at a time in the beer batter mixture. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove any excess oil and repeat until all the rings are fried.

Serve immediately with the lemon herb sauce.
