From a heavy, large bottle, this brew is explosive...the cork literally blew out after emoving the cage. The color is a clear, copper-amber. Thick and lasting foam tops the liquid. Enormous tufts of lace cling to the glass. Clean, malty aroma is notable....a fresh, pale malt scent, backed with a little herbal hops and a hint of yeast. The taste is moderately sweet, vey carbonic, has a notable malt flavor, and lots of mid-tongue bitterness. Firm bitterness through the finish...which has some spiciest and a carbonic bite. The beer hides its alcohol very well. Firm and full in body. This beer is a treat.

(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- This beer pours a clear slightly dense garnet-brown color with strands of tiny bubbles supporting an egg cream head that turns rocky after a few sips.

S- The cream and fruit ether turns into an alcohol smell in the finish with some green woody hop notes to it.

T- The dry woody malt flavor leads to a Noble hop bite in the finish. There is some sweetness in the finish with an alcohol heat lingering. As the beer opens there is more of a mineral taste and some watery notes that grow.

M- The light mouthfeel has a creamy fizz texture and some alcohol heat in the finish.

O- This beer is a bit odd in flavor and aroma. The light flavor has strange qualities to the malt and hops and the alcohol seems to grow and dominate the flavor.

Brooklyn Silver Anniversary Lager

Appearance: large pillow head, orange, and lacing.

Smell: lots of whole floral hops and grapefruit.

Taste: a dry hopped grapefruit, spice, and orange peel.

Mouthfeel: extremely dry medium.

Overall:
This is an odd brew. While the aroma and flavors are nice, it is very very dry, yet smooth and pleasing. This is a definite try.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml corked and caged offering poured into a matching Brooklyn snifter. The brew appears a clear amber color with 2+ fingers of pillow off-white head. The cap fades holding with thick patches of lace. Rising bubbles maintain the cap throughout the duration.

The aroma is strangely soapy upfront blending to citrus, catty and fruity/floral hops. A hint of carbonic and mineral quality is also present. A touch of fusel alcohol. Overall, the aromatics to this are underwhelming and a but distracting for the style.

The taste is mineral filled and carbonic. Hoppy with a citrus to grassy and fruity/floral quality. The alcohol is quite solvent with grassy to almost catty bitterness lasting into the aftertaste. There is a bit of dusty grain inclusion also present.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is dry and crisp but the flavors are really a bit of a turd for the style (even when looking at it as a double version of their staple lager.) It opens up off in aroma and decent in taste. As the experience continues the aroma gets better and the flavor gets worse. Not recommended.

From the corked caged 750 ml. bottle no. 0323A. Sampled on November 14, 2013.

It has plenty of bubbly carbonation floating gently but incessantly up to the top of the glass with an amber-orange color and a silky beige head. Lots of lacing.

The nose is of toasted, caramel malts mainly with a tip of the hat to clean hops and only a touch of booze.

Bold to medium body but also very smooth.

The taste also brings out a roasted, toasted caramel malt character with a lingering low to moderate bitterness at the end. Alcohol is better integrated than is typical for the style. Just smooth and delightful. But do I want to spend $17.00 for it again? Probably not.

From: Binny's, Bloomington, IL
Date: None on bottle, 2013 release, purchased 8/2013
Glass: Ayinger Celebrator doppelbock glass

Brooklyn's Silver Anniversary Lager is an untraditional doppelbock in many ways: lighter in color and less emphasis on the malt than on the hops. While not bad, this maibock-like doppelbock is neither what I was expecting or what I'd gravitate towards (and at $14 per 750ml bottle, not something I'd purchase regularly, anyway). Interesting to have tried Brooklyn's doppelbock attempt and note what this hop combination can do, but otherwise, not one I'd seek out again.

Pours a 2.3cm tall head of beige to light-tan colored foam, made up of small-sized bubbles that are well-pressed, yielding a very frothy-looking appearance. Retention is excellent, the foam descending slowly over two minutes to thin cap of foam remaining atop the beer for the session. Lacing is also quite good, the head leaving thick, heavy sheets enclosing all sides of the glass. Body is lighter than expected, an orange-brown mix that leans more towards dark orange, with light bringing out deep pumpkin or persimmon-like orange coloration. Carbonation is visible through the slightly hazy (20-30% opaque) body, high in number and medium in activity.

Aroma of spicy phenols, with woodsy, leaf-like, and slightly citrus undertones, from a combination of the Saphir and Cascade hops used. Very little actual malt character, mostly in the background, that being a slight breadiness.

Flavor is of hops that give a woodsy, mossy, spicy edge (from the Willamette and Saphir combination), combined with spicy phenols and a light bread and toast-like malt background. Front of palate of spicy, floral, woodsy, and slightly citrus-like hops (from a combination of all four in this beer, Hallertau, Saphir, Cascade, and Willamette), with phenols from yeast (an incorrect primary fermentation temperature?) and faint bread-like sweetness. Mid-palate of continued hop characters (woodsy, spicy, mossy, with hints of citrus) with strong phenolics and mild, bread-like and slightly toasted malt characters, mild to moderate bitterness. Back of palate experiences ethanol, slightly sharp phenolic notes, woodsy and herbal hop characters, moderate bitterness. Closes drly herbal, with mild bitterness and lingering phenolics joined to slight woodsiness, yeast, and bread-like malt character.

Beer is medium to medium-heavy in body, with carbonation of medium to medium-low intensity, resulting in a mouthfeel that is foamy (1/2) and smooth (1/2), quite nice for the beer and style. Closes quite dry, with moderate stickiness remaining on the palate and lips.

Large 2013 bottle served in a small snifter.

Hazy dark amber-brown with a modest but durable head. The glass gets nicely coated with lacing with each tip.

Aroma: strong and malty for a lager. About 50/50 mix of hops and malt.

Flavor: About 70/30 mix of hops and malt.

Feel: medium body and carbonation; slightly dry

O: a rich, strong and malty lager.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice caramel and toffee aromas and flavors.

Pours hazed copper with a lasting thin head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel/toffee, rum-like fruitiness and spiciness with mild earthy notes.

The taste is of caramel/toffee, spiced rum, nutty malt and dried fruits. Finishes with a touch of alcohol warmth and mild sweetness.

It is smooth with alcohol well-integrated.

A well-done doppelbock in the traditional style similar to Paulaner. A nice representation and a dangerously drinkable brew!

Served in a snifter at The Avenue in Allston.

Appearance: This beer had a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is crimson color with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, toasted malts, and noble grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with some booze and grassy hops in there.

Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy smooth, a little bitterness, medium bodied, boozy, and light to medium carbonation.

Overall: A nice doppelbock that I would happy to enjoy again.

1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with great label art and hood-and-wire cap (aka cage) over a cork acquired at Twin Liquors and served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are fairly high; I like a lot of Brooklyn's work. 9% ABV confirmed per the label. The presentation is great; it's a good looking bottle. Reviewed as a doppelbock because the label claims it's "brewed to a doppelbock intensity." I don't see a best before date.

Served cold, straight from me fridge, and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Cork easily pops out by hand. No liquid surges out. Carbonation seems to be good; perhaps it's due to the bottle re-fermentation.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a 2.5 finger wide head of biege-khaki colour. Nice thickness and creaminess. Complexion is somewhat soft. No real lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is quite good for the ABV - about 5-6+ minutes.

Body colour is a clear copper of above average vibrance. Translucent and transparent. No yeast particles are visible. Appears adequately carbonated.

Overall, it looks a bit lighter than most good beers in the style. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Sm: True to style, it's heavy on the malts. Sweet German malts including munich, Vienna (okay, it's Austrian...) and biscuit malts. Honey, toasted grains, light caramalt. Surprisingly fruity, actually. Apple and pear. Maybe even fig? I do get a vague fruitcake vibe from it. Hop character is generic and floral. Overall, it seems too sweet, which has me concerned.

No yeast character or alcohol is detectable.

An approachable aroma of mild strength.

T: Fruitcake and caramel on the climax are the first notes I notice. Sweet malts throughout, including plenty of caramalt, Munich malt, and Vienna malt. Abundant sugars. Honey. Toasty graininess. Hints of red apples and a kiss of pear. There's a pleasant fruity sweetness right on the finish, which evokes fruitcake and cherry. I don't get any spiciness or yeast character. Some alcohol is noticeable, but it's not a boozy or hot flavour profile. Hopping is floral in character and timid in strength. It's a light doppelbock overall, if that's really what it is.

Like most beers I review, it could use more complexity and subtlety. It's got a decent balance, but it isn't gestalt; still, there's cohesion. I like it generally.

Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

Mf: Definitely overcarbonated. Has a thick full body. Lightly coarse and a bit rough. Wet. Unrefreshing. The mouthfeel suits the flavour profile in a general sense, but doesn't come off feeling custom-tailored to it. There's not a perfect marriage of texture to taste by any means. Decent presence on the palate. A bit sticky.

Not too acidic. Not oily, harsh, gushed, or hot.

Dr: A downable "doppelbock" from Brooklyn Brewing that will satisfy fans of the style. I'll kill the bottle alone without issue, but it does have a light alcohol presence that detracts from drinkability. I could see it aging decently for up to two years. I definitely wouldn't buy it again, but fans of the style ought to give it a go. It's more of a Vienna lager meets a doppelbock, but the result isn't bad. I wouldn't recommend it to friends, but it's a nice little beer for what it is. By no means a paragon of the doppelbock style, though.

I picked this up at State Line Liquors in Md, enjoyed for our 4th Anniversary chilled in a tulip and stemmed glass.

The color is dark amber with 3 fingers of light beige cream with average bead and spotty lace. The smell of malt is pleasant with light earthy nutty toffee smell with mild herbal hop ester and sublte scent of aclohol. The feel is mildly sweet with semi-high carbonation level and moderatly dry finish with mild alcohol warmth.

This tastes very nice chilled and has the mild nuttiness of pilsner malt with herbal hop flavors emerging more as it warms with some mild toasted and caramel malt which adds a light dried fruit element. The slight noble hop flavor brings a hint of lemon/floral to the taste which goes well with the toffee notes in the finish. Overall this is a unique strong dark lager with a blend of pilsner flavor and dopplebock which is very drinkable and quaffable with a nice balance of malt and bitterness with decent strength and complexity -well Done Brooklyn!

A: orange-brown, very light haze, good head that maintains with good lacing
S: not much, but seems malty, maybe some raisin bread notes
T: starts with a little sweetness, light molasses, fading into a light orange-blossom honey. The alcohol content makes a little appearance in the middle. There is an ever-so-little bite of bitterness near the end.
M: balanced and far from overwhelming: sweetness up front, little bite in middle and very light dry pull at end.
O: not quite what I expected from a lager, but a very enjoyable drink. More maltiness than anything, but not too strong and sweet.

Picked this up last week at Gary's in Wayne, having never tried this before. I'm old enough to remember what things were like in 1988 and was happy that they put out a beer like this in one of their signature big bottles. Even though this was tough to pinpoint and deceptively smooth for being so strong, I enjoyed this and all of the subtle notes to it. It was not as dark or as sticky as other beers of this style that I've previously had and the secondary fermentation in the bottle made it quite live both in taste and appearance as well!

This beer had a nice dark apricot hue to it and a good head when poured out. Even though the lacing didn't quite match up, there was a bit of cloudiness to it and enough carbonation to make up for that. Lots going on here, with a strong yeast presence, caramel malt, and the lightness of champagne. May seem like an odd combination but it took the features that made the Local 1 and 2 so enjoyable and built upon them, as the same yeast strain and mouthfeel were present here with a darker taste and appearance and a slightly heavier taste.

That was also true for the alcohol, as this was not to be taken lightly. While not outstanding, this was a great beer for an Anniversary and easy to savor slowly. Nothing chocolate or roasted here but there was a faint stickiness from the caramel that was scrubbed away by after each sip, once the beer went down. The artwork on the bottle was nice touch and this was exactly what I expected for a Silver Anniversary Lager and I"m sure that Garrett will have something just as enjoyable in store for when the Brewery turns the big 5-0 way down the road!

a great beer, surprising choice for a big anniversary style wise, maybe because lagers usually aren't this exciting. this pour is absolutely gorgeous, clearish medium amber to brown in color, much darker than expected, with a robust white head that's light as a cloud and long lasting. fancy lacing trails behind on the edges after each sip, a real looker this one is. a nose of sweet and dry malts, covering a broad range of color depths. minerals and sweet red malts, lighter wheat and biscuit characters too. some awesome lager yeast that has an almost tartness, not quite bretty but almost as out there. real different! some dried fruits are tasted, as is a light sweetness and caramel flavor I taste no booze at all. surely not a traditional dopplebock, this sort of defies all style conventions. carbonated very brightly, without much weight to it at all despite the normal density of a dopplebock and beers this high in alcohol more generally. a luxurious and fancy brew quite worthy of any celebration. I really enjoyed sharing this bottle with my brother.

750ml bottle, poured into a Brooklyn tulip.

The beer pours a a light amber red color, hues of burgundy and mahogany, clear complexion with a bone colored head, very billowy that rises about 2 fingers high before receding slowly and leaving a small amount of sticky lace behind. The aroma is of rich malt, toasted grain, biscuit as well with some light spicing and stone fruits at the finish. Not as robust or assertive as many others can be, but it's tame and balanced. The flavors are in line, lots of grain, ranging from light biscuit to toasted malt to rich, sweet dark grain, with a bit of spicing and crispness and a touch of pluminess is detectable at the end. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully, but again, the flavors are on the tamer and simpler side and don't really pop out. The mouthfeel is good, very full bodied, coats the mouth well, carbonation is very present but not abrasive, the finish is lightly creamy with a little zip from the bubbles.

Verdict: A very pleasant beer from Brooklyn, but nothing too bold here. The flavors aren't overly rich or powerful and nothing is too assertive, one of the more gentle and delicate beers I've had of any style for 9.00% and that was to my enjoyment. Definitely worth checking out for anyone who likes a good lager.

Served in my new favorite mug.

Appearance: A slight hazy amber, little dark with a heavy head rising to almost two finger's length with a vigorous pour coming an off-white color.

Smell: sour hops scent, it feels almost spoiled but still very like-able.

Taste: has a sour but sweet finish, think of a light maple syrup with a lemon skin and juice blended in. Definitely malty and smooth dose of hops, definitely nice but different complexity.

Mouth: Medium to full bodied, the sour finish is evident and a just above average stickiness.

Overall: If I had a solid opinion about this beer is tastes something like a European lager, has a complex taste that feels to be a bit one dimensional. You feel the alcohol, you feel the taste almost like a light maple syrup with just the right dose of citrussy bitterness. Considering what else you can have that fits into this category and what better quality beers Brookyn brewery has delivered it's a 50/50 shot taking a chance on this one. Hope you like...Salud!

Brooklyn Silver Anniversary Lager
750 ml., corked & caged
$14.99 @ Wegmans, Malvern, PA

Appearance: Hazy, deep amber-russet brown body beneath a short head of off-white foam. The head holds fairly well, then drops to an average collar and whispy syrface covering.

Smell: Malt & hop. Caramel & spicy. Herbal/leafy hops.

Taste: The flavor, no surprise, mimics the aroma. Floral and spicy hops hit right upfront atop caramelish malt, and hold across the middle and into the end where the bitterness rises and the hop flavors begin to fade. There's a lot of malt that clings to the palate, keeping the bitterness there, and it's a long, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly full. Moderate carbonation leaves it smooth and creamy.

Overall: Solid components of malt, hops, and body/strength.

Appearance: Rich amber with thin off-white head.

Smell: Biscuit, caramel, dark fruit and light spice. A little too mild.

Taste: Rich malts of biscuit, toast, caramel and cherry. Some light hops with spice and mild citrus.

Feel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Nice crisp and dry finish.

Overall: Doppelbock version of Brooklyn Lager. Very nice.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/17/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, pepper, floral, grass, pine, light nuttiness, and floral/yeast earthiness. Very nice and unique aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, orange zest, grapefruit, pear, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, citrus, pear, floral, toast, brown sugar, light pine, brown bread, grass, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with a nice malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice and unique doppelbock style. All around nice balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the alcohol level. A very enjoyable offering.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into tulip 21/7/13

A hazy orange amber, loads of tiny bubbles moving suspended particles, finger of cream colored foam leaves a couple partial rings and lots of random lace

S more hops then I was expecting with some citrus peel and chewable vitamin C pills, bread, brown sugar, herbal notes and a little wet wood

T rinds still strong, not as sweet as the nose, still hoppy with some dry cereal

M leaning towards full, gritty on the gums, with a nice bitter snap and rind lingering on the finish

O perhaps I should re-visit dopplebocks because other then some bready notes this wasn’t what I was expecting but I rather enjoyed it

Pours with a small head of white foam on a hazy, amber brown body. Lots of toffee and apple notes in the aroma. Big malt up front with toffee and caramel. Some apple and more caramel in the middle, finishes with a touch of licorice and spicy hops. A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a somewhat sweet finish. Not bad, a bit muddy and one dimensional, the toffee gets really cloying by the end of the glass.

really unique and a delicious creamy and smooth beer. really surprising to turn brooklyn lager into this unique dobblebock. would gladly buy a large format after having this on draft in DC. Has everything a american dobblebock typically exhibits with an above average smell.
