Unlike most people I know i'm not a lager type of guy. I recently bought a book " Ambitious Brew" and the first couple chapters is focused on America's love affair with German Lager. Well, the author made a good case for Lager, and my mouth salivated every time i read "Lager." So i went out and bought brooklyn's lager and this last week has been pretty much lager exclusive.
The appearance is great, light fluffy off white foam. light clear yellow red color. i really didn't detect to much from the smell, but there is some good citrusy aromas. taste is great with exceptional mouthfeel. i know this review is brief, but simply put- this is a great beer to convert your friends to good beer.-

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.
