A very pleasant surprise. This lager pours a thick reddish amber with a nice frothy head that
dissipates to a light layer of tight beaded pooling foam and fantastic lacing. Nose of light
spices, light biscuit, light caramel, and some lemon undertones. This must warm in order to
catch anything. Flavor is extremely complex for the style. A lightly tart sweetness comes up
front with some hops mingling on the back. Not overly bitter and not overly sweet.
Extremely well balanced with lots of subtle nuances to pick out. Sweetness balances out a
light dryness, just phenomenal. One of the best Brooklyn brews I have ever had and hope to
purchase again for another taste IF I can find it.

Cheers
