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...
