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.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Poured a clear medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma had a nice caramel malt presence upfront. There was a mix of toffee notes, candied sugar and a slight hint of citrus hops. Flavor had mostly sweet flavors. Caramel malts were great there was a nice added sweetness from the candied sugar flavors. There was just enough bite from the hops and alcohol to keep this beer from being cloying. Carbonation seemed a little high. There was a little bit of nice sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
750ml bottle, 8.6 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, shared with friends. Fair off-white head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Clear copper coloured body. Smell of herbal hops, pale malts and dried fruits. Balanced taste of cocoa, juicy malts and dried fruits. Hidden alcohol. Soft carbonated. Fine bodied. Pleasant lager, indeed (Tromsø 23.08.2014).

Palme (3311) - 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

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
