4.5/5 rDev +20%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured into a pint glass.
First off I want to say....what a beer. Delicious and refreshing.
Poured a really nice pale copper with a great 2 finger head. The head lasted about halfway down the glass. Pretty impressive.
It smelled of small biscuity malts. Not too much hop essence but it was there,
The taste is what blew me away. I couldnt believe a vienna style lager could taste so good. It had lots of malt with a nice bitterness from the hops that takes over and blances it out right away. I drank my first glass in a few minutes because I needed that taste over and over. Definetely a great beer to mow the lawn with.
It was excellent consistancy too. Perfectly carbonated and not too rich so it made it very very refreshing all together.
One of the most drinkable beers Ive ever had. Light and crisp...but in the good way. Easily the best session lager Ive had yet. Bring this to a party for BMC drinkers and they will more than likely give up there commercial world of crap and join us in the wonderful world of craft.

3.79/5 rDev +1.1%

A: Clear, fizzy orange amber with a nice white foam head.
S: Lager yeast, carmel malts, faint hop, sudsy
T: Caramel malts, smooth and creamy on the front, with a slight hop dryness on the back. This is the perfect beer with a grilled burger and fries on a hot day.
M: A little too carbonated, but super sessionable.
O: Confession - I love this beer more than I probably should. Nothing really blows you away, but this is a consistently solid, ever-so-drinkable lager. This is what adjunct macro garbage could taste like if any of the brewers gave a crap. While this beer isn't going to win any big awards, it is a great, consistent brew. Great job Brooklyn!

Rated to enjoyment, not to style.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a 1" thick, rocky head with great retention. Significant visible carbonation. Lacing goes all down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, grapefruit; malty background. It's those Cascade hops! Smells great, but doesn't seem like a Vienna lager.
Taste: Dry, clean arrival, bitter and clean across mid-palate. Dry, hoppy finish. It could use a little more malt, but it is a lager, not an ale, after all.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, good carbonation.
Overall: Really pleasant. Because this doesn't quite seem like a Vienna lager, what with the strong American hopping, I'm not going to rate it as one (BJCP does not have a category for American Amber Lager - that's a problem...). This is a beer I could come back to again and again. It is a well-structured, balanced, hoppy craft lager. Easily one of my top five beers of all time. Clean, refreshing, and remarkable (but not a Vienna lager).
