This was clearly a dissapointment. I like other Brooklyn products I've tasted and Local 2 is one of my favourites.

Appearance is not that bad, little haziness copperish color. I didn't get much foam after pouring.

Smell is rather unappealing, sort of damp. I can't quite locate the smell, but somehow it's not that great. Sure, some hops but frankly - IMO it smells bad.

Taste is also very unappealing. It's somehow metallic and very mild. No hops, malt, booze. Nothing. Very bland. Mouthfeel goes to same direction.

So, this beer probably goes nicely in bar with having nice time with friends and perhaps straight from the bottle. But from the "serious" beer tasting point of view, this is at most average beer. (716 characters)

A friend shared a few bottles of this export-only beer. The label reads it's a mix of chinook and cascade hops for Sinebrychoffin in Finland. This beer reminds me of an English ESB (with American hops). There's a mellow caramel and bread crust malt profile followed by bigger pine and citrus hops with a herbal twist from the chinook. Very tasty and drinkable. This a great session ale I wish we had in the U.S. (411 characters)

Appearance: Pale yellow, bubbly. Pours a small one finger head that recedes very quickly.

Aroma: Flowery hops with a hint of honey sweetness. Refreshing.

Taste: Quite light, but rather drinkable. Has characteristics of a hoppy lager rather than an APA in fact. The hops give way to a light malty sweetness, with some citrus undertones.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, medium carbonation

Overall: It's okay, but nothing amazing. A nice session ale, which I've in fact often had in bars in Helsinki, as you can get it in quite a few places. Decent value for money. (567 characters)

This is quite a decent beer that Brooklyn has made.

The hop profile is quite smooth, so it almost seems like it adjunct with wheat. There is a light hop start and then it has a bread and caramel profile and has a really good smooth malty finish. The malty clean finish is quite nice.

This is a great summer beer. I do prefer more hoppy beers, but the smooth and wonderful malty clean finish is done really well. (413 characters)
