COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Brooklyn Brewery is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. We are fortunate to be a part of the incredible cultural renaissance Brooklyn has enjoyed during the last quarter century. Four great Brooklyn artists whom we met along the way—Fred Tomaselli, Roxy Paine, Joe Amhrein and Elizabeth Crawford—have created special labels for our Silver Anniversary Lager beer. We are saluting our beginnings with a special doppelbock version of the Brooklyn Lager we introduced in 1988. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will taste great today or years from now. The original was inspired by the beers of 19th Century New York and Vienna.

oh6gdx (21553) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Bottled. Deep golden colour, small head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is sweet malts, some alcohol, a bit fruity and floral notes along with some raisins as well as toffee. Flavour is being quite similar, but suits together rather well in a nice sweetness to it.

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Comes in a beautiful bottle, corked and caged. It pours a nice amber color, just hazy, with medium sized head, a thin layer of which is kept by a persistent perlage; it seems a bit overcarbonated indeed. Some aroma of stale beer, metallic, light esters. Smooth and dry mouthfel; it has some boring caramel flavor, traces of vegetables from the fermentation, ordinary bitterness, and light metallic impression in the end; also some chicory bitterness.
Not even close to a Doppelbock, and not good in any case.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. An almost clear one, amber in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is rather hoppy, with pine cones and orange peel, some sweetness and a touch of toffee. Vegetal hoppy hints. It’s full bodied and lightly warming on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Bitter, orangey flavor with a malty sweetness. Lasting bitter finish with orange peel and pine cones. Not bad at all, still a bit boring in a way. Wouldn’t mind drinking it again though. 141231
