2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow, was I disappointed! The aroma was weak, some hops, not much malt, and not very toasty either. It had an amber-orange color with a good-sized, creamy, off-white head. I actually disliked the first sip, and although it got better, it still was hard to drink. Quite sour and bitter, especially in the early going. The palate was a bit too light and watery, without much carbonation. Overall not what I expected, it underperformed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; poured an orange-copper. Not much head. Aroma was typical of the style; bread and malt. Flavor was much of that, but with a light sweetness and moderate grassy finish. Didn’t pick up any substantial toasted components. Enjoyable, like many in the style. Probably above average for the style for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Burnt copper in color. This beer is very malty. The multiple layers of malts impart a silky smoothness to the beer that makes it very enjoyable.

Bottle... I wanted a Brooklyn Lager, but was given this as a sub. It wasn’t a bad replacement, but it’s not as good as a Brooklyn.
