Brooklyn Lager: From a twelve ounce brown bottle.
Looks great: deep reddish tan color, fairly clear with just a wee bit of haze. The head was not huge, what there was almost seemed like a white/gray color, kind of unusual actually. Left some foamy lace down the side of the glass.
The aroma was light, clean with just a hint of caramel malts.
The taste was very carbonated, if you know what I mean. I can imagine this being a fine session beer, because it is lightly bodied, nicely balanced, and quite frankly, does not have an overwhelming amount of flavor. Sweet malt and then a cleaning swipe of hops, and a lingering sweetness. But flavor, well it tastes like a Yuengling. Not at all unpleasant, and one I can see drinking when Im going to have more than one (Ok, 5), but as a nightcap, it leaves a little bit to be desired.

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
