I have had this beer before. I have actually had this beer in New York City. Never been to the brewery before… but I wouldn't mind going. I love to travel, I love New York, and I LOVE beer! (Don't get excited… the beer is just okay.)
The beer smells like a lager. Makes sense… this beer is a lager. It has a weak carbonation on top, and sits like a pale in the glass. This beer does get better the warmer it gets. But the beer is an easy find, cheap, and not one that you want to sit around and get warm. At least close to room temperature. You get a hint of that carbonation on the palate, just as the flavor leaves. It's quick, slides down easy, and is a drinkable beer. Its a lager… nothing fancy about it.
I wouldn't buy this beer again, unless it was on sale. I mean, it's a typical boring lager. Brooklyn makes a LOT better beers than this. It's just okay…

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.
