12 oz. bottle, with best before October 2013 printed on the side. My second beer from Brooklyn Brewery, and I'm excited to try it based on my experience with their Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.
A - Pours a coppery burnt sienna orange colored body, with some cloudiness and some sediment floating around. About a finger of fluffy off-white foam for a head. Looks like more of what I imagine a pale ale would look like than a lager, but it still looks nice. Some very thin strings of lace.
S - Smell is pretty subdued aside from a good whiff of pine hops, a hint of spice, and some dusty malt sweetness.
T - Taste follows the nose in terms of subtlety, but it is well done. Crisp carbonation, sweet sugary malts, wheat grains, and some bitter hops to round things off.
M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and clean. Some lingering green apple skin on the finish. Medium bodied, with good carbonation.
Overall, a very nice session beer from Brooklyn Brewery, one I would happily revisit. Some seriously flavorful easy drinking here; it is no wonder why this is their flagship beer.
Brooklyn Lager ---4/5.

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.
