COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber, American-style pale ale is brewed with five different barley malts, generous additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, and a unique strain of yeast. The British, German and American malts used provide a complex blend of caramel, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors. The hops provide a gentle, pleasant bitterness with an intense floral and citrus aroma. It is dry-hopped, unfiltered and unpasteurized. We hope you enjoy this fresh, local beer. Brew details: OG 1.064. FG 1.016. ABV 6.3%. SRM 9.6. IBU 34.7.

Wow, a couple of guys from the Bronx replicated Brooklyn Lager and made it a pale ale. If you like Brooklyn Lager you will like this. Tasty, but nothing creative or original.

Dark amber pour. Thick, pretty creamy off-white head. Lasting nicely. Piney hops and crystal malt in the nose. Creamy mouthfeel dominates at first, partially resulting from a nice pour. Moves to a rich maltiness of caramel and biscuit. It feels like everything is delayed in this. The malt doesn’t shop up until the finish, and the hop bitterness doesn’t come until long after. There’s a definite sourness in the finish that is a bit unpleasant. It blends with the hop bitterness and really sits there. I wish that pine in the aroma was more present in the flavor. Instead it just goes from creamy and bland to a bit of malt, right into sour. OK for guzzling out of the can, but not great to sit and savor.

Can courtesy of Eric and company at ChurchKey, thank you gentlemen! Clear deep amber color, white edge head. Aroma of fresh pine, grass, hay, honey. Taste starts malty, but nice balance.

Received this in a recent BIF. Served in a Half Acre snifter. A: Pours a solid amber color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some sticky lace down the glass. S: Sticky sweet malts. Some dried oat flavors with an earthy hop character. A little dirty and "green". T: A lot of earthy hops. Dirty and veggie like with some sweet oat malts. There is an odd metallic finish with some stale malts. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Earthy and metallic finish. O: Didn’t enjoy this one particular much. The stale malt and metallic-like character in the finish really was off-putting. Wasn’t that drinkable. Serving type: can 06-16-2013

On draft at the Crouton Tavern, NYC. My pre-game beer before the 2013 B.A.D. My first sample from this brewer. A decent Pale Ale with deep complexion and balanced flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Half Pint in NYC. Pours amber with a beige head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is light, thin mouthful with caramel, malt, and bread notes leading to a malty, dry finish. Not much flavor
