Brooklyn Lager, ABV: 5.2%.
355 ml bottle, 16.40 SEK at Systembolaget.
A: A clear, amber-coloured liquid, with a good, slightly off-white head that leaves nice lacing and a neat ring.
S: Fruity hops, raisins, citrus, apricots, toffee and lightly roasted malt.
T: Lightly roasted flavours of hops, dried apricots, citrus, toffee and rye.
M: Medium-sized body, larger bitterness, decent carbonation, light crisp and a somewhat dry finish. A bit heavy compared to pale lagers.
O: A nice and drinkable beer, not as good as a great pilsener, but still a refreshing alternative - like a pale ale - with tasty, meaty food. I think I'd really enjoy this at a BBQ.

3.61/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
Had on draft during the Celtics game at the TD Garden.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a color color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass ad the beer was drank.
Smell: Slight toasted and caramel malts with some lager yeast and citrusy hops.
Taste: Same as above. Balanced and simple.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitterness, light bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: A good Vienna lager. Not the best, not the worst, but better than average. Enjoyable, simple, and easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass - drank cold from the refrigerator.
A - Poured a light copper color with a good thick long lasting head as well as significant lacing.
S - A nice combination of citrusy hops and malt sweetness.
T - Started with the citrusy hops and ended with a nice sweet malt finish.
M - Good body and carbonation level.
O - A really refreshing lager that could be a great session beer.
