Look at that big fat three-finger snowball white head, like a real Champagne of beers. Fresh zesty seasoned smell with a light sweet malty spinal column rising from this pretty amber brew. The flavor seems to match the scent as the hop's indescribably unique citron demonstration steals the show. More than subtle, less than front forward, Brooklyn Brewery does it again, for me at least. The only visual obstructing the view through this clear golden cloudless thirst-quenching indulgence are the crystal carbonation bubbles drifting up to support the stable fetching white head. This may be my new favorite beer! I can drink this all day. I better put some of this in the vault before it's all gone. I feel like if I tried to make something that nearly resembles this beautiful brew that I would certainly fail. Brooklyn Brewery, I love this stuff.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - nice golden straw with a nice finger of head. Good carbonation coming. Very clear no haze. Good lacing coming down.

S - nice hop aroma off the bat, but has a nice spice in there too. Sweet malts are there but not over the top.

T - this is great. Hops on the start with this almost Christmas-y spice note to it. Leaves a great bitter aftertaste that isn't too much (if there is such a thing). Has a little citrus in there as well which is refreshing.

M - nice transition over the palate. Very smooth. Carbonation is great.

O - overall great beer. At the brewery here in Brooklyn and having It this fresh is the best!

Serving type: on-tap
