Caramel, bread, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is mild, slightly sweet, and smooth, with a little grassy bitterness in the finish. Given it’s low rating, I was very pleasantly surprised.
Tap als Brooklyn ale amber. Prettig van smaak en goed kroegbier. Aangename smaakvariaties, maar niet verbluffend. Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 6, 2017

I got this in a trade with yobdoog. Thanks Trevor!
This pours a clear amber with a 2 finger head of foam. I have to say, Brooklyn beers all seem to not be lacking in the foam department and most have great retention...as does this one.
The smell is nice and sweet from caramel malt and I'm guessing, some fruitiness.
The taste is a little lighter than what I expected but there's good notes of caramel malt, bread, a little roastiness, and some bitterish hop flavour that does some balancing. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is medium, and it finishes slightly bready, slightly bitter, and at the end, a bit watery. Pretty good stuff and would be better if it hadn't lost all its flavour at the end. Still, I'd drink it again, no problem. PhillyCraft (8192) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog. Draft in NYC before my sisters wedding. Gotta take what you can get sometimes. Pours an orange golden with average head. Stale hops and honey caramel biscuits are the main tasting notes on this awful beer. Light bodied and forgettable matstrange (262) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Looks like a lager but is half way to an ipa. Lightly hopped with a malty hint too. Very drinkable. jtc16 (4) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 8, 2016 does not count
Crap. High priced crap at that. Makes Rolling Rock look good in comparison.
