Very good lager. Poured a surprisingly amber hue, with decent head. Nose is very floral, with some hops, malty balance. Taste reflects the smell, again much more floral and spring-time-ish than I expected. Very good session beer; highly recommended.

6 pack bottles. Surprised how amber it was- thought it would be more a yellow shade. A small head remains for a long while, good lacing too. Starts sweet, ends with a lingering bitterness. More body / complexity than I was expecting- I enjoyed this beer.

Ok brooklyn. Brooklyn lager was one that got me into the finer side of beer. Fruity and toasty with hints of nuts but overall a simple thin taste that gets to you after cases and cases. Certainly not one of my first choices but when options run out, i rush to the lager.

Bottled. A bit on the red side. Minor white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy. The flavour is distinct with a hoppyness. There is a sweet aftertaste as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with a touch of red. Has a small, quickly dimmenishing head. Aroma is malt, slightly sweet, and grassy. Flavor is grass, malt, nd ratehr hoppy. Finishes bitter and sorta dry. Itís a good brew, maybe a little too much of the grass hops but nothing to fret over. I make sure to drink it when I visit Brooklyn.

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.

On tap, in a bottle, I think Iíve 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, itís a bit too hoppy for a lager.
