Bottle. Pours a clear orange golden color with a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is wheat, caramel and bread. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is first a light hop with a crisp malt finish. A great session beer, glad it finally made it down to texas. Paul150 (37) - , Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Pours a medium amber with a small, short-lasting head that dissipates to a nice lacing. Aroma is balanced between yeast, malts and hops, but is very mild overall. Taste is fairly hoppy for the style with some hints of the malt character behind it. Mouthfeel is still on the watery side, but it doesn’t detract from the overall experience. Another excellent, drinkable offering from the Brooklyn Brewery. hirigalzkar (3294) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Very light aroma with hops and malt. The taste is OK with a touch of caramel and some strange metallic extraneous flavour. 120414: Re-rated from draft. Very pleasant. Hoppy, thirstquenching lager, lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Pours a clearish golden amber color with a short lived whitish head. Smell is fruity, mildly hoppy and some subtle yeast. Taste is crisp and lightly hoppy up front with some yeasty flavor and malt behind that. Some light lingering hop fruitiness and bitterness making it very crisp and drinkable. More like a pale ale than the lagers I’m used to drinking and this was surprisingly good. Nice session beer with flavor. oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours a completely transparent amber brown, beautiful carbonation, and a thick frothy head. Very yeasty aroma, maybe some toasted wheat, chestnuts, and caramel. Full body and well balanced flavor. Starts with a nice malty-ness, follows is some caramel, a tiny bit of hops and a crisp clean finish. This beer has great body, great flavor (though not very complex), great balance, and I enjoy it very much. Fantastic.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing as it slowly recedes. Fruity orange aromas. Soft with upfront caramel and a lasting citrus finish. rcasta (874) - EL SALVADOR - SEP 27, 2008

Fluffy to rocky, largish off-white head. Light, clear maple colored body. Decent retention, Good lacing. Aroma of floral hops like a light pale ale, light caramel and bread. Taste is a bit of cardboard, light hops, and a bit watery. Lightly fizzy ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours a orange golden color with a medium sized puffy off white head. Nose is caramel, sweat, and toast. Taste is crisp and refreshing with notes of citrus and summer fruit. Some corn on the back end. Not bad, highly quaffable.
