3.73/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
poured into a 12oz. stein from a bottle
pours a nice pale orange colour, little head with a decent amount of lacing at the top of the glass. Does not look like your typical lager, but not a bad thing. The smell put me off a little though it had some lovely hop notes to it. Tastes excellent has a firm structure but still very refreshing, nice mild hop finish with a sliht malty sweetness. Drinks very easily the first sip was the one I enjoyed the least.
This is only the second beer I've tried from Brooklyn, the first being the chocolate stout and I was quite impressed with that wish I could get more up in Canada, but it is what is.

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!

4.2/5 rDev +12%

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).
