Brooklyn Brewery has only been around since 1989. I purchased this lager from a local beer store, brought it home, chilled it a little and drank it. The appearance is that of a normal lager. It looks a lot like Sam Adams Boston Lager but has a slight reddish tint.
Smell was not bad and carbonation was not terrible but certainly there. At first taste it's hard to compare it to another lager. It has a bite to it but very appealing. Not a bad after taste and ABV was very good for a beer of this caliber.

I would recommend this Lager to anyone who wants to try something a little different from the normal lager you purchase at any mom and pop bar.

Stay thirsty my friends...

a clear deep amber with an off white head that quickly disappears. looks like an ale - not a lager.. very misleading had i not read the bottle label :p

smells of orange and honey, cloves and cinnamon

taste is a bit bitter yet crisp - hint of burnt grains, bread, burnt caramel/toffee

light body, high carbonation, slightly creamy

not really my cup of tea for beers but if it's the only other lager on tap here in nj (this does happen often where this is y only craft choice aside from blue moon*) then i'll drink the fuck out of it without a peep.

*fuck blue moon, seriously. this shit is not craft beer. it's mass produced wheat beer. and for that matter, wheat beer is fucking boring, make this stuff taste better if you're going to try and take over the fucking market with it you assholes. thanks. have a nice day.
