3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate head. Aroma is of sweet malt with a bit of grassy hops. Taste is moderately bitter, with a bit of an apricot sweetness. Bitterness makes for a clean finish with little aftertaste. Overall, described as a lager, but sure is tastier than any of the macros.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, in a bottle, I think I’ve even had it in a can. It looks beautiful, a clear amber with minimal head. You can smell the hops very strongly. Speaking of hops, it’s a bit too hoppy for a lager.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beefy, hoppy lager. If you’re going for lager, this one is it. More body, more aroma, and more hops than what you would expect. This one makes for a great barbecue or shrimp boil if you are into that sort of thing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Better than an average beer, but thin and a little watery, hoppy for the lager style of beer. Not a bad beer, but not great.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Better than most standard lagers. Typical malty flavor, but very hoppy for a lager. A bit on the thin and watery side. A boring beer, but easily drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
aaahhhh the beer of my homeland! tucked away in the craziness of my beloved nyc -the center of the earth- is one of the best lagers in the world. taste of beer, hops, a layered effect of flowery sweet clean and genuine flavors. not too sweet! a touch of bitter just to open up your imagination. "yeah cousins" you are back in new york now! genuine body because that’s how it’s brewed.

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. I’m not much of a lager guy to begin with, so i suppose i already came into this expecting not to like it that much. However, the taste is there. Not too much else to say about it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Pours a light copper colour with a small off white head that deminishes quickly. Sweet aroma with notes of malt, hops and caramel. Taste is slightly less sweet than the aroma with a nice bitter finish. very smooth with good carbonation. a top notch lager.

On tap at the brewery. Golden color, small white head. Very nice for a lager. Hoppy flavor, slightly malty, very drinkable. Another good Brooklyn effort.

This is one nice "lager"---it tastes more like a pale ale to me.
Very nice to drink on a hot day. Thank you NEW YORK!!!
