Bought a few bottles of this at the new Yankee Stadium for $8.50! I'm not complaining...
My first thought--what a spectacular looking lager. Really incredible. Deep amber beer with a huge foamy off-white head that has infinite retention and laces beautifully the whole way down. I'm wowed. (Can't quite understand what people are looking for in appearance if it's not something like this....skimming the reviews I see a lot of low 'appearance' scores. Can anybody explain this to me?)
Smell is big on the floral hops right up front. A bit spicy too. There's a great hoppy nose on this lager. Ain't that somethin? Tastes all kinds of smooth and just crisp enough for me. Brooklyn got a great year round brew with this one. Cheers on that. There's some apple in this one that I'm tasting but mostly it's floral and citruisy, a bit of grapefruit. An altogether enjoyable brew.
Drinkability?? I had 6.
