UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 Clear amber with medium of-white head. The aroma is sweet, floral, some bready. Taste is medium sweet, floral, some tart. Finish is light grassy and floral. Mild bitterness. Has a medium body -- readily drinkable, and a real delight. Great lager for an anti-lager person.

Pours dark amber with little head. Aroma is very hoppy, though yet it has a spicy quality to it. This expands to the taste, where spices and a flowery feeling add to the hoppy bitterness...

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Medium dark amber color with a large frothy beige head. Aromas of malt and lightly spicey hop. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel, and a touch of citrus sour - which might be the hop. It doesn’t finish all that bitter, but it is well balanced. It’s a very tasty drink.

A: The pour is a light amber color with about a finger of white head.
S: Starts off with quite a bit of toast and bread. Just a sweet malt profile overall. There are some floral hops and a mild grass note. The necessary lager yeast aroma is present, as are some mild esters.
T: Things don’t deviate much on the palate. Sweet toast and bread malt flavors with a bit of a toffee note. Minimal bitterness with floral and grassy hop flavors. A few fruit esters give a bit of depth.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Sort of an ubiquitous beer on the East Coast, it seems. I found it to be pretty enjoyable.

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.
