Easy drinking, with notes of citrus dancing with a medium touch of hops. Slight bitterness in the finish. Solid.

12oz can, served into a standard pint glass.

A: Glowing amber pour; slightly cloudy body as the beer settles into the glass; golden-orange highlights along the edges; a fluffy, off-white head forms on the pour, good retention; sticky sheets of lacing.

S: Very citrus forward - notes of freshly-peeled citrus rind and grapefruit juice are prominent; aromas trend more towards an IPA than a cream ale at the start; then a sweet, cereal-like grain note rises up, creating a nice base that supports and moderates the initial waves of citrus.

T: Much like the nose, the initial sip is dominated by hints of freshly-peeled citrus rind (orange peel) and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice; the initial puckering bite of citrus flavors are gradually tempered by the introduction of a sweet honey note, and the cereal-grain flavor of the underlying cream ale; a touch creamy through the middle, provides nice balance; the finish dries slightly, leaving a fleeting hint of honey and orange-like flavors; I can definitely see the "creamsicle" comparisons that many reviewers note.

M: Slick body, with crisp carbonation that cuts through to keep proceedings light and very refreshing.

O: While it may be difficult to place this beer squarely into any single style-category, one thing remains clear - regardless of what you consider this beer, consider it a supremely drinkable example. Smooth, light, and very refreshing, all wrapped up in a low-abv package that makes this beer very sessionable. Recommended.

Brooklyn at Berg'n. Made great first impression and my wife never wavered. I decided that the carbonation was tricking me into thinking that it was distinctive.

Nose is lemony and hoppy with a slight note of chocolate, pours slightly hazed dark yellow color with a very thin light airy head. Tastes of light citrusy hops with the hint of lemon and slight bready malts. I like this beer, very drinkable and sessionable at 5.2% ABV.
