4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep copper color......very fluffy head. Fragrant hop aroma. Malt sweetness up front, extremely well balanced by a noticeable hop flavor......slightly crisp mouthfeel. Taste of hops continues in the back, with a long, slightly bitter finish. Probably the best lager I have ever tasted.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Hopper than expected - grapefruit citrus, some lemon, beady, and great lager character. Really nice

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is caramel malt. The taste is the same with a nice balance of hops and bread. It’s smooth with some carbonation. There’s some bitterness on the back end. This is a good lager.

Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is honey with a bit of hops. The flavor is malty with a nice little hop kick to it. Somewhat grassy on the finish. Pretty decent lager.

This is a very drinkable and good tasting beer. I had this on tap at a local restaurant. It had a touch of caramel and bread taste. IT was suttle and good.

pours brilliant copper color with medium white head. aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy, especially for style. very nice floral hop flavor with a farily complex malt backbone. drinks almost more like a light ipa than a lager....really yummy beer.

Big on the malt (as advertised) which had me pleased, it was also nice to see the respectable hop profile presented here. Strong floral hops help balance a semi-sweet, doughy malty flavor. This beer will not blow your mind, but it is a highly enjoyable lager, and reasonably priced and widely available to boot.

pours amber golden-brown with a fluffy off-white head. nose of bread, floral hops, caramel, toast. flavor is bready, toasty, and a little bitter. floral. malty and well-balanced. finish is a little dry, nutty flavor comes through.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear deep honey/amber color with small slightly off white foam. Aromas initaly of light hops then malt in a way smelling like barley wine (smells like it would be strong beer?) although quite simple and resinous aromas but nice. Palate, medium body with mouthcoating texture leaving smooth maybe with hints of booze malty finish. Taste is sweet of malt with some hints of light malts being used, has somewhat stronger beer taste to it. Overall, not bad, interesting one thing that really threw me off it tasted like some beers of 7% and over that I had? There fore I am not sure and start to doubt my tastebuds.... But give it a go it is still nice! Although as geting through the bottle taste mellows out leaving afterteases of caramalt and biscuit malt.

a decent lager, though not the best of the brooklyns. found the hops to be a bit too pungent, but at least they're high quality hops.
