A: no head really on a hazy orange amber body. scattered lacing

S: dark breads, caramel, orange peel

T: bready and caramel malts, resins, candied orange, spicey hops with a metallic and boozy finish

M: medium body and high carbonation.

Overall: relatively simple but easy to drink. The carbonation was a little too much for me.

Pours with a small head of white foam on a hazy, amber brown body. Lots of toffee and apple notes in the aroma. Big malt up front with toffee and caramel. Some apple and more caramel in the middle, finishes with a touch of licorice and spicy hops. A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a somewhat sweet finish. Not bad, a bit muddy and one dimensional, the toffee gets really cloying by the end of the glass.

750ml bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Pours a solid bronze color with a two-finger head that very slowly settles
S: Nutty, malty, biscuit, a hint of hops
T: Malt malt and more malt but balanced nicely by integrated hops that provide a touch of resin & nice citrus. Along for the ride are biscuit notes, herbs/spices and some plums/alcohol towards the end
M: Medium to full-bodied, chewy, a touch of alcohol but overall filling/balanced
O: I like the fact that Brooklyn did a play on a lager for their anniversary celebration. Cheers to them and all they've brought to the beer world! Overall this is a very solid beer but it's tough to beat Celebrator as king of the style
