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 (2026) - 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.

AgentAle (917) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Aroma is light roasted malts, clove and honey. Taste is light sweet malts, honey, a light earthiness and subtle dark fruits and apple. Appearance is a hazy bronze with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

oh6gdx (21544) - 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.

kevinator (1141) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Nice malty aroma with a hint of candied fruit and fig. Beautiful color and lacing. Average weight palate and carbonation. Bold lager flavors with a strong malt earthiness but not too musty. The alcohol was felt but not boozy. Hops make a minor presence.

McNeillR (1567) - SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Hazyish orange, folded white ringed head. Lean fuzzy mandarin malt nose. Snappy bitterness. Slight gummy citrus. Fairly softly spoken carbonation. Finish is clean melon, soft grapefruit bite - this is got some decent teeth without showing the ABV.

Bottle at Craig’s house. Appearance - deep amber with a decent head. Nose - pine and gentle citrus with a toffee backdrop. Taste - lovely dry pine finish after rich toffee start. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - brilliant balance between rich and fresh.

jinroh (589) - ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours beautiful amber, beautiful foamy head. Nice. Aroma is sweet, fruity, soft like a pillow. Taste has caramel, toffee, even some muted bitterness like a lager but its not like a lager at all. Strong lager, drinking really well. Average body. You can feel the alcohol but if to say that this has 9%, would not believe that. Goes down even too effortlessly.
