Perfect smelling beer. Very dry crisp flavor. Not much fruit. Biscuit and grassy flavor. Not very bitter, not big enough flavor. Thick white foamy head. Solid lacing. Pretty good beer. This is the type of beer that you want to drink right after a round of golf or mowing your lawn. Great summer thirst-quencher

Look at that big fat three-finger snowball white head, like a real Champagne of beers. Fresh zesty seasoned smell with a light sweet malty spinal column rising from this pretty amber brew. The flavor seems to match the scent as the hop's indescribably unique citron demonstration steals the show. More than subtle, less than front forward, Brooklyn Brewery does it again, for me at least. The only visual obstructing the view through this clear golden cloudless thirst-quenching indulgence are the crystal carbonation bubbles drifting up to support the stable fetching white head. This may be my new favorite beer! I can drink this all day. I better put some of this in the vault before it's all gone. I feel like if I tried to make something that nearly resembles this beautiful brew that I would certainly fail. Brooklyn Brewery, I love this stuff.
