Bottle poured into a pint.

This beer pours a pretty typical amber/red color with a head that disappeared quickly. The smell is caramel sweet and rich grain. The flavor starts out a thin and watery grain flavor that quickly transforms into a delicious mixture of caramel and toffee with a hint of bitter riding the sweetness' heals. The mouthfeel is light and easy drinking. It leaves your mouth a little dry.

This is a very good lager and very enjoyable. I don't think it is excellent or outstanding, but then again I have never had any Brooklyn brew that I thought was, but, like most of their brews, this is a good beer.
