Small amount of citrus taste and a good thick head. Nice body for a lager. I really enjoyed this with some NY pizza.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2003 On a warm Saturday afternoon in May, took one of those bikerides that took me a lot further than I probably should have went. During a much needed pit-stop, I enjoyed two excellently poured pints of this Lager accompanied by a heaping order of pommes frites with curry mayonaise. This is a filling and smooth, albeit pretty typical lager. Hints of toasted nuts and citrus. Hopsy, but not overboard. A little bite never hurt anyone. Good head and sweet aroma. Too bad the frites gave me indigestion on that long ride home! I've never been let down by a Brooklyn beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Pours a medium orangish brown fluffy head that sticks around. Mild aroma of soft floral hops and dough. Flavor is of soft floral hops and a nice doughy malt profile. Near room tempature a slight caramel malt flavor comes in. The hops and malt are very well balanced. The palate is very creamy especially if you get some of the head in your sip. Medium-full bodied for a lighter lager.

The term "Lager" is such a generic term to use on a label as I have seen it used for a range of styles, vienna to helles. It can be deceptive. Well this is a vienna, deep gold in color with a creamy substantial head. Floral hop aroma with some orange and pine. A sweet malt taste with a dry slightly bitter end. A nice taste but seems to lack body for this style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber colour with a VERY dense off-white head. Nice powerful hoppy aroma. Great balance in the aroma with malt as well. Some alcohol in the scent. Medium to Light-Bodied; Slighly acidic taste with subtle malt and noticeable hops. Aftertaste bittered from the hops and left flavourful. Overall, a very good beer-better than I had expected and definately reccomended! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World and sampled it on 16-October-2003.

Although I prefer Ales to Lagers, this lager makes up for the lack in hops with its fruity yeast. Definitely a good lager from a quality brewer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), moderately malty (caramel, cookie), with a note of apricot. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A bit sour for my liking, but decent.
