3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had asked for a Brooklyn Lager at the Gramercy Tavern in NYC but was told that this beer had been subbed in for it on the menu for a short time.......The hazy yellow colour and minimal white head almost fooled me into thinking the waitress had messed up my order and brought me a wheat beer.......However, I was in for a tasty treat......the fruity (apple?) aroma prepared my palate for the sweet, caramel malt flavourings that would soon flow over it.....the quality hops in this beer balanced the sweetness and citrus flavourings again had me thinking of a wheat......the lacing on my glass also revealed that this was a quality brew.....excellent!

On tap at MacGregors in Henrietta. Blonde pour as the name would suggest. Typical tap head of creamy white froth. Aroma is very mild, maybe because it was served a bit cold. Sweet flavor, light and easy to drink. No hint of the decent alcohol content. A session bock.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice light citrusy aroma that pours a nice hazy golden color. Tastes of lightly toasted caramel malts, slight hoppiness and citrus flavors and sort of dry makes this really easy to drink. However, this beer doesn’t really stand out to me. Nothing really special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at LZS extreme beer fest. Strong vegetably, munich aroma. I have a lot of trouble with munich malts, as the cooked veggies are pretty much all I can pick out. It is a very distinct smell and I can recognize it immedeitely, though I’m never quite happy to see it. The flavor was similar, with a strong residual sweetness that was pungent and had notes of eggplant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden blonde leaving a thin white lace. The aroma is fruity with a slight musty presence. The taste is sensational, it starts with a funky, wheat bready feel in the mouth, then moves to a sweet honey effort balanced by the faintest sense of bitter hops. A another great effort by Brooklyn to continue to excite our palates.
