Coppery-Amber, high clarity. A one finger head on this pour with sparse but intricate curtains of lace. Take a whiff of Brooklyn Lager and you'll find a floral hop note that's pleasantly surprising given the style. Cascade hops at work here, though much more restrained than in a pale ale. Notes of lightly toasted bread and caramel round things out.

On the palate, crisp, clean maltiness gives way to a healthy hoppiness that lingers a bit past the finish. Superbly balanced in my opinion, though craft beer neophytes may find it bitter. Dry, clean finish. Nothing earth shattering going on here, just very well integrated, complementary flavors.

Brooklyn's addition of American hops to a Vienna style lager yields an excellent brew. This is noticeably better on tap than from the bottle.

Great lager. My go-to summer beer at the LCBO.
Tastes like a mix between an IPA and a pilsner.

Perfect beer to share with friends who drink BMC. The taste showcases noble and American hops with a low enough ibu to work as a gateway for future hopheads.

If anybody can find a better session lager available in Ontario let me know.

Can someone send me a 12-pack of this. While this might just be the Sierra Nevada on the East Coast, this is a really good Lager. Nice brown color with a great balance of hops and malt and a super clean finish. Wonderful session beer and perfect with lots of food. A must stop (along with Momofuku) on Friday's when in NYC
