Surprisingly for a Lager it poured amber with an inch head that downgraded to a 1/4 inch head quickly. Taste is good. Extremely well balanced beer. Way more hops than i expected, which is awesome! Very drinkable. It delivers a nice Lager taste with the malts, but then follows up with an awesome hop finish. I love the hop structure. Maybe it's because i expected some tasteless lager but... I really like this beer! Lacing is awesome for a Lager...it leaves these rad rings. Perfect session beer. I have nothing bad to say about this beer. It's perfect for what it is. And packs many surprises! Will for sure buy again. Brilliant. But I must say...if I tasted this with a blindfold on my head and had to guess the style, I would not guess Lager. But hey...I really like this beer! I bought a 6 pack and enjoyed every last drop, noticing different flavors every sip. I will for sure buy this again and recommend it to all my friends!

UPDATE: This has become my favorite beer.

love the Brooklyn lager... always pick up a six pack when I'm in new york... like the hoops smell and has a great taste that you can drink all night... also had on tap and is also excellent... excellent with hamburgers and other American food and BBQ foods.
