Back in 1998 I had my first Brooklyn Lager and I knew then that some 14 years later I would still be enjoying it. Nice amber in a pint glass with plenty of balance. PLenty of hops and malt backbone, but the malt stays with you each sip. Nice finish and plenty of complexity for a session beer. Brooklyn Lager is classic.

On tap at LaGuardia airport in New York into a stein.
A-My pour arrived with about one and one-half fingers of sticky, off-white head. Lacing was chunky at first. The beer is light-golden in color with a bit of active carbonation visible in the clear liquid.
S-The aroma is mild as you would expect. I smell some toasted bread, biscuit, and a bit dry, grassy hops. Pleasant and simple.
T-The taste tracks the smell mostly. The beer is pleasantly crisp, not quite sharp, but certainly not a sweet, malty monster. There is some grain flavor, toasted bread, biscuit, and hints of hoppy bitterness on the finish.
M-The body is medium to light with crisp carbonation of average strength.
O-A simple but enjoyable beer. This thing won't take you away from your Pliny or BCBS habit, but if you need a decent, easy drinking beer at the airport bar, this is a good choice.
