Had this beer at Citi field, home of the NY Mets. Its nice to see that brooklyn brewery is represented, and its not all about the big macro bullies.
From 12 oz can, poured into a cheap clear plastic cup... i guess they dont want us throwing things.
A: Quickly fading light sandy head. Dark amber, but clear.
S: The aroma is of rye, hops and citrus.
T: First notes are of rye, and bitter citrusy hops. Not overwhelming, but strong for a lager. The Secondary notes are of black pepper, and wheat.
M: A little bit harsh for a lager, but i did enjoy it.
O: Good solid beer to have on hand.
Serving type: can

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.
Serving type: on-tap
