100% bottle refermented ale also the back of the bottle states the use of German hops and barley in the beverage. Corked and caged 750 ml bottle from 2007, chilled and poured into tulip glass. Head rose fast, good effervescence, with three fingers of fluffy white foam; retention seems good and lacing apparent. The body is a golden, glowing straw color, with peachy highlights. The nose is quite good, very aromatic with tons of light citrus, minor hints of yeast, definitely pilsner malt in here, with notes of citrus maybe apple, light pear and just a touch pepper. Id like to make a guess on the choice of hops: saaz and maybe styring golden, but thats just a guess. Taste is pleasant and very quaffable. Its very soft on the palate all tough rather complex. Carbonation tickles the tongue just enough, with out being too much, keeps it light and gives it a sense of brevity. The same esters are present in the flavor as in the nose. At the start its rather full and juicy (almost wine like) then finishes rather dry, very good. The bitterness is subtle and doesnt really express its self until the finish, which is prefect for the style. Not quite a sessional beer, but great as suggested. This beer is a pleasure to drink I will definitely buy again for food pairing. Congrats Brooklyn.

My 1st corked beer. :-)
A - Pours a big fluffy head but it doesn't stay except to leave laces down the side of the glass.
S - Lightly sweet sent
T - Light sour taste, faint spicy yet tart finish
M - A light carbonated bite
O - I like this beer would be better without the carbonated finish.
