Beautiful amber color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, caramel. Reasonable body structure, featuring a quite strong caramel character supported by a strong (and quite aromatic) bitterness, and some fruitness (apricots).

So I finally tried Brooklyn Brewery’s flagship beer, the lager. But I did it in style: on tap, in Williamsburg at the Brooklyn Bowl. This was a great beer. Rich amber pour, considerable pure white head. Scents of malts and citrus. Regarding the taste, I actually got notes of mango. I don’t know. The beer had just enough complexity to keep me interested. The flavor was crisp and firm and overall the experience was stellar.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 Bottle. Dark amber, malty burnt caramel aroma, some hop aroma, very carbonated in mouth with toffee flavours, some hop toffee finish. Not too sweet thankfully 3.3/5
Re-rate. I love the hops on this now. Just wonderful. I don’t get the toffee so much nor was it over carbonated. I must like it as I bought two bottles in quick succession from Tesco.

Bottle share with JF on Southampton beer up - 09/09/12.
Clear pale golden with a frothy off-white head.
Nose is pale malt and a little grain - not much doing.
Taste as nose with a little toffee and background citrus.
Medium bodied with matching carbonation leading to a dry finish.
Ok for the style but people are making much better lagers in this day and age!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Clear, golden, well-carbonated beer with a lovely, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, lightly hoppy, and balanced. Nice, fruity, balanced flavor where some piny notes also find theire way. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and nicely hopped finish. A lovely lager. Wish more brewers could follow this example. (070512)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color, small but steady white head. Flowery, fruity nose. Extremely well-balanced malt and hop character. Feels more like pils than lager (what this Vienna means here?). Flowery, hoppy, world class brew.
