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.

Palme (3263) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
0.75l corked bottle. Pouring this in the glass it quickly tells me that this is quite a malty one based on the aroma. Fills the area with a not excactly unrecognizable malty sweet caramel aroma. It looks nice with a deep amber almost bronze looking cloudy body and it has a good looking really lacing beige lasting head. Nutty and really super malty nose. A ton of caramel with red berries and some ripe fruits. It smells quite good this. Tastes alright as well. It’s a bit lighter in the mouth than what I was expecting/hoping, the carbonation is just above average. Again quite Mallard nutty flavors. Slightly sticky and even a little alcoholic or boozy if you’d like. Malt drops and bread with hints of metal and licorice. Boozy burp on this one. Yeah, it’s a decent one, but still not completely what I want in these kind of beers. 16.04.2014

ozarkspops (352) - - JUL 1, 2014
Hazy copper pour. Ale like. Large off white head. Hoppy and biscuity aroma. Citrus hoppiness. Flavor is very smooth. American hops AE present, but not overwhelming the medium bodied malt flavors. Clean but flavorful fruity finish. ---Rated via iPhone
