COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed exclusively for El Verano, Danny Meyer’s taco bar. It features sweet orange peel in the kettle and dry-hopping with Simcoe, giving the beer a bright orangey aroma. Very nice with the tacos!

Only available at Citi Field, unfortunately is served in a plastic cup. It’s an excellent beer regardless, lots of flavor.

On tap at the flying saucer as Brooklyn Brewmaster’s Reserve Naranjito. Hazy amber. Frothy, big head. Strong, white lace. Perfect appearance. Lots of orange in the aroma along with pine. Full body put easy going down. Pale malty taste with orange maltiness balanced well by a healthy dose of Simcoe. I appreciate this beer because there’s enough fruit you can taste it but not too much to keep me from calling it an actual beer. This beer is mighty fine.

@ Citi Field for a Met game. Had three of them and they are tasty. I wish this was bottled. Great orange and citrus aroma with enough sweet toasty malt to back it up. This goes for the flavor as well. The huge hop burps after were even great. Light-medium body with a nice hop finish and mild bitterness.

Tap at Copperfields. Pours a bright orange amber with a nice white head- sticky. Hoppy dank simcoe hops- piney and citrus with some grapefruit- orange zest and a phenolic belgian yeast. Doughy malt flavor, some cookie dough, yeasty phenolic, with good sappy simcoe hops, tropical fruits, orange zest, a bit soapy and oily- juicy hops- clean and lightly bitter finish. I seemed to like this more than most.

On draught at El Verano at Citi Field. El Verano is a taqueria and is located on the Field level, which is level 3 at Citi Field. It is physically located behind the scoreboard just to the third base side of center field. It was a pleasure to go to a ballgame and see so many interesting food venues and also see such a wide variety of beers available. Ok, on to the beer...pours a slightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off-white head. The head lasted in the plastic cup until about mid-glass. Pleasant aroma of malt and just a hint of orange. The flavor is again malt and just a hint of orange, followed by some floral hops that add medium bitterness. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable.

Tap at Citi Field. Clearly the winner of the Citi Field beers. Aroma of spicy hops with a good dose of biscuit malt. Flavor again quite spicy as well as more grainy than the aroma would indicate from the malt base. Tasty.

Cask at ChurchKey. Pours a clear orange with a decent, white, fluffy head that has good retention and leaves spotty lace. Very nice aroma of quite literally peaches and cream ice cream. Taste is unsweetened oatmeal, earthy malt, overripe peaches. Very nice.

On tap at El Verano Taqueria at Citi Field. Light amber in color with a medium off white head. Aroma of mild simcoe- citrus, as well as some toasted malt. Taste is more skewed towards the malty side, with toasted malts, some light caramel and pale malts. Hops are overall mild, medium bitterness. Light to medium bodied.

tgncc (2742) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2009
The aroma is floral hops, some citrus, slight sweetness from caramel malt. The appearance is a red/gold color, with a white head. The flavor is reminiscent of a pale ale, citrusy, earthy, caramel. The finish is one of the nicer aspects of the beer, a refreshing citrus/grapefruit bitterness. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Decent overall.
