A very pleasant surprise. This lager pours a thick reddish amber with a nice frothy head that
dissipates to a light layer of tight beaded pooling foam and fantastic lacing. Nose of light
spices, light biscuit, light caramel, and some lemon undertones. This must warm in order to
catch anything. Flavor is extremely complex for the style. A lightly tart sweetness comes up
front with some hops mingling on the back. Not overly bitter and not overly sweet.
Extremely well balanced with lots of subtle nuances to pick out. Sweetness balances out a
light dryness, just phenomenal. One of the best Brooklyn brews I have ever had and hope to
purchase again for another taste IF I can find it.

Cheers

appearance: Gorgeous amber/honey. A little hazy, big plush off white head.
smell: not a lot happening here. Some hints of spice and malt, a little fruit. Pleasant but just not very deep imo.
taste: hints at sweetness while actually being quite dry. Some spice and hints of fruit and maybe honey. Lot more going on in the taste (vs the nose). Interesting.
overall: I expected a lot more I've got to say. That said, some cool flavors and very mild drinker, alcohol well hidden.
