Pours up with a Blanca head, copper colored, boogie outta control. Smells of hops, German perhaps, nothin crazy, maybe a lil wee bit o' malt. It's nice and bitter, like an American Pilsner only because it's not a true Pils to the best of my lack of knowledge. Sweet lil baby kiss of malts. Nice medium body, good carbo, solid beer. Solid is the word here. Brooklyn is a solid brewery. Not gettin a fully here but I'll remain half-mast

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured 12 ounce bottle into American pint glass

Very clear bright copper color with a nice pillowy head that leaves a sticky lace

Getting mostly a ripe orange-like character from the hops and some bisquit or bready notes.

Nice flavor kind of like a clean, brighter Yuengling lager. A bit of spiciness adds a little interest.

Medium/light mouthfeel not too much carbonation

Not my favorite style of beer but I found myself having a second and will definitely have this again
