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.

Wow rating number 1311 for this beer. Here is my drop in the bucket. Lovely lager. Decent malty profile with yeasty flavour, mild bubblegum, mildly sweet, no notable hops. Not overly Belgian but a very nice beer. Cheers.

ALIBALI (348) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2016
Ein sehr europäisch geratenes BSA/TRIPLE. Alles so wie es sein soll. Krätig,vollmundig und trocken. Vom angekündigten Saison Einschlag schmecke ich persönlich nicht viel, aber dafür ist das Gesamtbild sehr stimmig. Von Martins Weindepot Kiel für 13 Euro,die grosse Buddel.
