3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pint, Russel’s, Bloomsburg PA. Pours a clear dark amber body with an off-white head that left some light lacing. Malty aroma with some light caramel and toasted notes. A hint of butterscotch and some light floral hops. The flavor is pretty clean, with biscuity and toasted malt, a hint of sweetness up front, lightly bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate soft carbonation. A little sticky sweetness and a hint of graininess on the finish. Overall, a pretty decent beer, a nice compliment to the medium rare burger I was having.

Bottle with expiration date of Oct. 07. Pours a rich copper color but almost no head. Smell a hint of malts and a little fruity. Fresh and mild, not overpowering. Tastes a bit hoppy. An above average brew.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 surprisingly red/brown. guess i was expecting a pale lager. smell is surprisingly malty considering that, but mostly subdued. flavor is similar, but pretty balanced and drinkable. i like it.

Tap. Pours a deep orange with a small, slightly off-white head. Aroma is largely floral hops with a slight malt characteristic. Flavor is malt up front with an excellent floral hop aftertaste. It is crisp and refreshing, just like a vienna lager should be. Great beer.

I live in Texas so I was very happy to find this beer when I went to Chicago for the weekend. Pours a deep copper into the glass with a small off white head. The aroma is nice and floral. This beer is loaded with malty flavor with some nice crisp hops. A very smooth brew and one that I wish I could enjoy more!

Amber color wihte head. It has a great citrus hoppy taste to it. You can also smell the hops. It has some bitterness to it but not overpowering. Looking foward to tasting more from Brooklyn.

Draught --- poured a medium tangerine color, much like slightly tarnished brass. Great head that stuck all the way down the glass as I drank it. Thick. Great mouth feel with lots of presence. Refreshing and clean. Not much lingering taste here. Flavors of grapefruit, lemon peel, and citrus. Some mild bitterness and only the faintest hints of malt. A good beer that you could keep drinking all night. Not overly fantastic, but if it’s on tap it’s worth getting.

clean, crisp, absolutely full bodied, hopped to hell lager without having even a remote taste of lager yeast or any of that other botton fermentation nonsense that takes over the flavor profile of almost every other lager out there. Its freaking beautiful to have a full bodied lager that doesnt taste like a lager but doesnt make you as full feeling as drinking an ale...superb!

This was a pleasent surprise Darker than I expexted, and more full bodied, as well. Nice toasty, spicy aroma, and a dry, toasty flavor. Perhaps a touch of nuttiness, too. Tasty.

Very ale like - a a good ale at that. Hoppy, dark, citrus touch and a really good bitter finish. Glad that this is available here in Toronto - it’s a really good lager (or ale).
