look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

16 oz can into my Imperial Pint glass, while watching Cincy vs Vandy in the Liberty Bowl
A - Deep bronxe color, foamy head, good lacings
S - Yeast and malts.
T - malt out front, hops later. A little thin.
M - thin, but bubbly
O - not what I expected from a Lager. Don't know what "Pre-prohibition" style means - is this like Anchor Stream - lager yeast at ale temps? I like it, very drinkable. Good transition beer for someone who thinks Bud is good - nothing too scary.

Served unto a tankard.

Appearance: Pours a reddish-brown. Head was roughly 3/4 of an inch with a hard pour. Settled real quick after a sip.

Smell: Hard hops with slight hints of fruit.

Taste: Malty hops not overly bitter and pretty damn smooth.

Mouth: Medium to slight heavy carbonation. After taste is there going back and forth with (colby jack) cheese pairings.

Overall: Perfect all around beer, no matter how hot or cold it or how your feeling you will adapt lovely to this beer. In essence it might have properties of other famous micro-brewed lagers if you know what I mean. I call Brooklyn lager my number 2 when it comes to lagers you know who's number 1, Enjoy!
