UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Bottle. Dark golden/amber color with a white head. The aroma is hoppy and floral with notes of citrus and caramel. The taste is also hoppy and has a good bitterness. Notes of citrus, sourness and some sweet malt. Very hoppy for a lager beer.

This beer pours a clear dark amber color with no head but does have some spotted laceing. The aroma is very floral and you get some hints of malt and hops. It has a nice initial bitterness which fades rather quickly. There is also some nice hints of fruit which you dont notice untill about 3 or 4 sips. The palate is very smooth and warming, it has lots of hops and some mild hints of toffee which coat your mouth. The duration is very long and lasts for a while.

The first sip was a surprise and then realized there is a hint of fruit. This is a very good lager similar to Sam Adams.
The flavor is excellent. Buy more than a six pack of this one.

Strong hop presence in the nose, grains. Beautiful deep copper color with an ivory head. Bitter hop taste with decent malt backbone. finishes the same. Very interesting take on the style.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 The flagship beer of the Brooklyn Brewery, a concern which has reestablished beer brewing in the County of Kings, New York. This is a fine smooth heavy lager, flavorful with hints of sharpness. The color in the glass is burnished gold, with a small-to-medium cream-colored head. Best served very cold. A good beer to drink with lighter meats such as fowl or pork, it can be enjoyed just by itself.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 This is American, but rather delicious. Quite exquisite: perfumed, fruity, sweet, bitter. One of my favourite beers, but seems to have disappeared from here. Wretched shame.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is what I expect from a lager. Nice golden color, thick white head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Medium toasty, hoppy, malty flavor - really nicely balanced. Dry, bitter finish that just makes me want to take another sip. I could drink this beer all day long.

bottle: pours an amber hue with a small white head that disapates fast.
aroma is a wonderful nmaltiness with floral touches and some caramel, and grainy. flavour starts a tad bitter and then slides into some toasty malt and caramel malt, some slight fruity floaralness and some earthy hop bitterness is in the finish. very good beer and a style i am really starting to love.
