COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors. Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes. It is particularly nice with spicy seafood and with fine cheeses.

Bottle. Pours clear orange yellow, fizzy off white head. Aroma is Children’s Tylenol, fruit, slight meat. Flavor is dried fruit, funky, musty, tangy, meaty, spicy. This is a bit more on the balanced and flavorful side.

Gachupines (1063) - USA - SEP 3, 2007
Light golden, a little cloudy with a decent white head. Aroma is mostly yeast. Flavor is of spices upfront with a strong yeasty backbone. Overall, pleasant and crisp but with a strong malt presence which makes it very drinkable.

pilsnerrogge (2621) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2007
75 cl corked bottle
Golden coloured with a slight haze. Yeasty, fruity, "Belgian ale" aroma. Flavour is dry and toasted, almost peaty. Peppery finish. An interesting interpretation of the Belgian ale-style.
