COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors. Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes. It is particularly nice with spicy seafood and with fine cheeses.

Clear golden color with big white frothy head that stays long.Aroma of florals, hops, belgian yeast, malts and alcohol. Taste is sweet with belgian style yeast, combined with floral hoppiness. Alcohol finish. Low carbonation. Taste a bit too alcohol for me and pricey but overall very enjoyable.

Marstonlad (852) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy bronze with a big frothy head. The aroma features grainy maltiness, floral hoppiness, fruitiness and Belgian yeastiness. Taste is medium to heavily sweet initially, later becoming slightly drier but staying sweet nonetheless; hop bitterness is low. Pale grainy maltiness provides the platform for Belgian yeast and fruitiness displaying especially orange. Some floral hop flavours appear as well. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Malt sweetness is a bit too prominent here; it does not give room for other Belgian dimensions.

laakus (148) - Nossebro, - FEB 23, 2017
Golden colour with big white foam. Aroma is somewhat sweet fruity and belgian yeast. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, rather long finish. Quite sweet from the malts and sugar not much bitterness though some dominating in the end. Alcohol very well hidden. Easy to drink.

Cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has some yeasty fruits, alcohol, mellow maltiness. Some tangy orange zest in flavour. I liked this years ago when this came to market, now it feels quite bad.
