Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden-copper hue with a very thick, frothy, white head that slowly dissipates down the glass leaving a nice trail and ending in a huge frothy persistent lace.

S: Sweet malty aroma with a caramel background followed by floral hops.

T: Similar to the smell sweet caramel malts meets floral hops to create a smooth refreshing brew.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent lager by Brooklyn Brewery. Nothing spectacular but something I would grab at a bar if available.

A - Not much of an amber lager more of a dark Euro lager with a 1/4 inch of head. Seems like it sticks around for a while.

S - Grainy yet minimal which is nice. Mild twang of citrus hops and clean sweet malts.

T - Not bad the taste is very balanced and clean. Grains are pure and the citrus hops taste good. Sweet corn is the best I have ever tasted in this beer.

M - Light to medium it was easy to drink.

Overall I might want to pick this up again. Really great lager.
