this is brooklyns weakest beer. I mean its just kinda there. It tastes average/good. It smells average/good. Its just kinda there, this is one of those beers thats in purgatory. Its ok, but then again so is alot of macro brew. If you are gonna get a Crooklyn get the lager or octoberfest or brown. this one is just alright.

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
