2.93/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a very light transparent amber color with a one finger head that leaves a lot of lacing. The nose is heavy on malt and grain and a slight bit of hops. The taste is very grainy with a slight bit of malt sweetness and a touch of hops. Very watery and lacking in flavor. The mouthfeel is decent but its not a very drinkable brew and one of my least favorite from brooklyn, which is a brewery I like a lot.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle into a pilsener glass, an orange-yellow hue with an ample fluffy white head. Smells like doughy pale malt and assertive floral-spicy noble hops, pleasantly tangy and vibrant with a subdued rounded sweetness. Taste is saltine crackers, subtle lemon-lime citrus, faint celery stalk, white pepper, blackberry, maybe hints of apple, and a rounded corn-like sweetness: I think Brooklyn did indeed capture some preProhibition flavor here. Not overly green but does feature a more rounded floral citrus hop note, almost like perfumed tea, with a sweeter than usual malt backbone. Moderately carbonated with a smooth mouthfeel and thin but not watery body. Great pils in my book. I dig the sweeter malts and noticeable fruity hop flavors, although things don't stray too far from style guidelines. Top notch patio beer drinkable in quantity.
