Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.

A- Poured into pint glass, amber color with decent foam that went away quickly
S- Smelled some maltiness, light alcohol
T- Tasted little bit of molasses, some coffee hints
M- The carbonation was done right, went cleanly in my mouth after drinking
O- Good, drinkable beer. It was light on a lot, which isn't a bad thing for lager. There was nothing that really stood out about this to me, but thats not always a bad thing. Its still tasted nicer than some other drinkables in the same categories (Bud, Coors, etc.)

Appearance: a dull orangish color. nice clarity. and a white head that leaves nothing behind

Smell: grassy, and caramel malts.

Taste: an odd, unbalanced mixture of sweet caramel malts and grass. way too sweet

Mouthfeel: light and good, but leaves a lingering sweetness that doesn't bode too well

Overall: I am hoping this one is bad tap lines. I was at a bar that wasn't the most craft friendly. other than that i found it to be on the verge of undrinkable
