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.

Hazy, pale body with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is herbal, bread, grass, pepper and tropical fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, cotton candy, herbs, pepper, apricot, grapes and dough. Medium body is round and lightly carbonated with a slightly medicinal end.

skortila (4826) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2007
3rd LCRBM. Citric aroma with some earthy yeast and flowery hops. Pasle yellow coloured with a white head. Taste is sweet, citric with yeast and some malts. Dry finish. Nice, but unimpressive.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Brew pours a slightly hazed, pale golden color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. A lasting head finally reduces to a thick, downy canopy of sticky lacework. Bright and creamy aromas of tropical vanilla malts. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. The texture is pillowy soft like a big cotton ball. Tropical malts set the scene for this classic novel. Only mildly sweet w/ cameo appearances from Mr Vanilla Bean, Madame Citrus Rind, and the mild Banana Spice mistress. It’s not a complex novel but the story line is solid and the talent is timeless. The finish is bittered w/ a peach pit style and leaves a lingers parchment on the palate.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle from some place in Chicago. Pours a pale and hazy golden with a white head. Huge yeasty and spicy aroma. Lively carbonation and very light texture. Initial flavor of pale belgian malts that transitions to a middle of yeast, white pepper, and a hint of citrus. Very little sweetness. Dry finish with a wisp of alcohol. Well done, but I would have preferred less dryness and a little more sweetness to balance this out.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
3rd LCRBM. Blonde. Vanilla and flowery hops in the aroma. Cardemom, citrus and malt in the flavor. Rather alcoholic brew, that is really decent, but not great.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2007
750 mL bottle. Pours golden yellow with pretty big white head. The aroma is quite deep and yeasty, with bread, oak, spice, and very mild banana and alcohol. The flavor is surprisingly floral at first, along with a slight zesty kick. Then some wood and fruit notes come out, and a very strong yeast presence. The finish is warm and dry, with a barely detectable fruit character to it. Pretty good, but I wish I had some cheese to go with it.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2007
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.
