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.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Blond color. Nothing special about the aroma. The flavor, even if dry, is quite malty, with very strong spicy character; rounder at the end. Too much alcoholic. Not bad, but it has been pushed too much.
