This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....

Presentation - Classy label in the Brooklyn Brewery Style.

Appearance - Pours out a nice hazy copper with a 1 1/2 finger golden white foam head the sticks round before fading into a foam covering.

Smell - Smells of fruity floral hops with hints of sweet bready malts and lightly roasted caramel.

Taste - Taste follows closely with the smell. Wonderful floral hops mixed with sweet bready malts. A very nice balance of sweet and bitter in this offering.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a very nice amount of carbonation.

Drinkability - Highly drinkable Lager. Very crisp and smooth with excellent taste balance and very nice mouthfeel.

One of the better lagers that Ive had. This offering was very enjoyable, very refreshing, and is recommended.

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.
