Brooklyn has never disappointed me well there was that one time ,any way.....

T^- TASTE- an hint of citrus at the front but it is not overwhelming.Not sure where they get their malt from but it tastes kinda wheaty to me its not gritty enough to be wheat but you can feel the vibe. For the most part Its very well rounded. Hops mah maybe not a lot its pretty clean i think they did a good job on this one. Has a little bitter jaw shock just a hint,if this was my first one of the night i would notice it more. Its pretty sweet, for an actual note.

O^- ODOR- It smells like honey to me not super strong but that's my first probably the malt they tamed down with the hops. Kinda like piss and vinegar except its not. the malt does kinda kick you in the face like a round house kick but its causal.

M^-manifestation - malty little bit of hops and a slight citrus bitter tinge.

A month past it's best by date. First gusher I've had from a can. Aroma is floral and bready, with a touch of earthy hops and a hint of orange peel. Flavor is slightly sweet, almost honey-like, and bready, malt dominant, with minerally notes, a hint of lemon, and herbal hops adding intrigue. Finishes fairly clean, with light bitterness. Seems a bit hollow at the finish.

Had a pitcher of this with my bro in law this past summer. It was really nice, very refreshing. Lemony taste great carbonation. But the lemon taste got to us and we had to switch it up in the next pitcher
