Brewed exclusively for Katz Deli in NYC. The perfect beer to wash down a pastrami sandwhich from this awesome place. The beer is a dark amber color whith a rich and subtle ale taste. Awesome beer!

Had this on tap at Katz's Deli as I wanted to try this place out finally. Saw they had the Brooklyn logo on the tap handle and figured I'd give it a try (plus, nothing else looked interesting). The beer pours a dark amber-brown colour with thin white head. Some lacing on the glass, but the head dissipates fairly quickly. Smells of toasted caramel malt, hint of hops and very mild chocolate. More sweetness to bitterness in the flavour. This works very well with deli sandwiches.

Pours dark brown like dark black tea transmitting little light except at the edges. Very little tan head. Smell is of sweet malt and a bit of nuttiness, and the taste follows this profile to the 'T' with roasted caramel malts that stands up very well to Katz's amazing pastrami. The sweetness and full body of the beer is just right for the food pairing. This is a beer made to pair with deli food.

Yes. I went to Katz's to have a beer.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is malty sweet. Flavor is sweet too and a bit too much so IMO. A bit cloying on the mouth. Smooth carbonation and a good liquid feel. Overall not too bad really. Nothing to go out of your way for, but it's good enough.

Had this beer at Katz's deli in NYC. It's a beer that Brooklyn brewery brews for the restaurant.

Appearance: Brown with a thin head that dissapates quickly. Not completly clear but lacking haze

Smell: Aromas of toast and caramel dominate.

Taste: Tastes of caramel malts and american (or british) hops. Nice blanaced flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium boddied.

Drinkability: Nice beer that pairs well with their signature pastrami sandwich.
