On tap at LaGuardia airport in New York into a stein.

A-My pour arrived with about one and one-half fingers of sticky, off-white head. Lacing was chunky at first. The beer is light-golden in color with a bit of active carbonation visible in the clear liquid.

S-The aroma is mild as you would expect. I smell some toasted bread, biscuit, and a bit dry, grassy hops. Pleasant and simple.

T-The taste tracks the smell mostly. The beer is pleasantly crisp, not quite sharp, but certainly not a sweet, malty monster. There is some grain flavor, toasted bread, biscuit, and hints of hoppy bitterness on the finish.

M-The body is medium to light with crisp carbonation of average strength.

O-A simple but enjoyable beer. This thing won't take you away from your Pliny or BCBS habit, but if you need a decent, easy drinking beer at the airport bar, this is a good choice.

A - golden copper, one finger head, clingy lace.

S - Malts, bread.

T - more an ale (English IPA) to this palate than a hoppy lager, so I guess it's to style. Bready/biscuity malts. Little bitterness.

M - moderate to high carbonation and lightweight.

O - really quite drinkable as in grab a six pack, but not at Aus price point.

Perhaps one the most affordable lager beers in the world.
Malt is dominating the aroma. Almost to the point that it sticks a little in the nose when you take a smell.
The taste full of hops in abundance with some flowers when the beer passes the palate.
Brooklyn Lager reminds me a little of Falcon Bayerskt, but with 20 times more flavor and aroma.
