Brooklyn Brewery's "BLAST" - 9% ABV - Served in a 12oz glass from a tap at BROOKLYN BREWERY's location in Brooklyn, NY. 02/12/2011.
COLOR: Clear golden color similar to a Heineken style lager. Visible carbonation. Served with about one inch of head, which lingers and dissipates in about three or four minutes.
SMELL: Hoppy. Remeniscent of a pilsner.
TASTE: Hops are definitely the star here. Light spicy sting in the middle. Strong bitter finish.
MOUTHFEEL: Crisp. Carbonation is a little high. The beer itself has a smooth texture and depth similar to a lager.
DRINKABILITY: The crisp quality is very refreshing. The beer has good boday. Overall, I think that the beer is very drinkable if you're not bothered by the overwhelming hoppyness of the beer.
OVERALL GRADE: A-
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.
Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
