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!

Brooklyn "Pre-Prohibition" Lager pours a couple fingers of dense white foam over a slightly cloudy, effervescent amber brew. The nose is lager yeast funk and sweet, clean light barley malt with notes of honey and spring herbs. The flavor is simple and direct- sweet light malt balanced with mild herbaceous hops. The mouthfeel is round yet light, finishing semi-dry and clean with only a sticky lacing left behind in the glass. This is a deceptively simple lager sold for a premium price- but is it worth it? I would say yes- it's so simple there is nowhere for the Brewmaster to cover his tracks- every element of taste and texture is out in the open, and every element is in perfect balance- sweet, but not insipid, the hop presence just enough to balance the sweetness, pleasant in the mouth but dry enough to be quenching- a nice brew.

Had this on tap at the brewery.

A: reddish brown. 1 finger head.

S: fruity and citrus. Subtle malt.

T: fruity and malty.

M: nicely carbed and medium body.

O: good but not great. Could take it or leave it. After having so many different flavorful beers I feel that this beer just couldn't hold its own. Probably not it's fault. It was overshadowed by great beers however.
