Brooklyn lager is a beer that has eluded me for months. Always in stock but never actually at any of the LCBO's that I visit. It wasn't until I spotted it at a grocery store in Orlando that I had an opportunity to try it and I'm glad I did.
Off the pour it looks very nice with a white cloud like head that's two fingers deep and sticks around. Lots of lace on the way down as you drink this light brownish amber colored ale.
It smells lightly of caramel and oranges and the taste has both. Smooth rich caramel up front, fruity oranges from the yeast and a sharp burst of well balanced hops take over and stick around through the finish. It's quite nice.
Mouthfeel is good. Creamy and smooth and the carbonation is barely noticeable. The whole thing goes down fast though so hopefully you have some more on hand.

3.61/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
Had on draft during the Celtics game at the TD Garden.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a color color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass ad the beer was drank.
Smell: Slight toasted and caramel malts with some lager yeast and citrusy hops.
Taste: Same as above. Balanced and simple.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitterness, light bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: A good Vienna lager. Not the best, not the worst, but better than average. Enjoyable, simple, and easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass - drank cold from the refrigerator.
A - Poured a light copper color with a good thick long lasting head as well as significant lacing.
S - A nice combination of citrusy hops and malt sweetness.
T - Started with the citrusy hops and ended with a nice sweet malt finish.
M - Good body and carbonation level.
O - A really refreshing lager that could be a great session beer.
