4.03/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a tulip glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - A nice hazy dark amber with a soft, fluffy head that comes down with nice lacing into a thin collar of off-white around the edge.

S - Not much here, but it is good. Floral hops mostly with some acidity in the backing.

T - Good balance of hops and malt with a very clean finish/aftertaste. Somewhat biscuit-like. Not very complicated, but still tasty.

M - Definitely not thin, but not syrupy. Carbonation is subtle and it feels just a little weighty on the tongue.

D - Very drinkable. Definitely good for having a few at the bar.

Overall - I haven't met a Brooklyn Brewery beer I didn't like, and this is no exception. While not terribly complex, it's a well balanced and tasty brew that will likely become part of my regular refrigerator standbys.
