a: This was a ruby tinted brown color. It was served to me with a large, siff, bone white head.

s: Sweet bready malt, hints of caramel, roasty nuts, and dark fruits. I need an independent laboratory to confirm an abv of 9%. There is precious little evidence of it in the nose. Well done.

t: Softly sweet and pretty close to spot on. Delicate bready and nutty malts with just a little brown sugar and suggestion of fruit.

m: Soft and silky.

o: Happy anniversary Brooklyn! This was a great way to celebrate.

On tap at kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. White head, moderate retention on a clear, copper body. Aroma includes tangerine, orange, candi sugar and some caramel malt sweetness. Taste is nicely bittered with a nice background caramel sweetness. Tropical. Delicious beer, my only complaint is the style was a little misleading. Maibock, maybe, not doppelbock. But delicious.

Pours a clear deep golden color. Smell of candied malts, citrus and sweet bread. Alcohol is present but not too strong in the aroma. In the taste, copious amount of bready malt and bright citrusy hops. There are some leafy, earthy, grassy flavor to the hops, which works really nice with the big, toasted, bready malts and lager yeast. Medium bodied feel with an even carbonation. Drinks smooth with little hint of the abv. Overall, this is a great lager, and worthy of being an Anniversary lager. Quite good.

10oz pour on-tap into a tulip.

Appearance
Burnt amber with a short head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with low-moderate carbonation.

Nose
Bready malts, caramel, dark fruit and floral hops.

Taste
Nicely malted lager. Big doses of bread, caramel and candy sugars. Touches of dark fruit with some red grape flavors. Well hopped with big floral aromas. Touches of lemon, tangerine, papaya and pineapple.

Mouthfeel
Medium-full bodied, clean and crisp.

Overall
Brooklyn Lager x2. Hell yes! Nicely balanced and an absolute treat.

Brooklyn Silver Anniversary Lager

Appearance: large pillow head, orange, and lacing.

Smell: lots of whole floral hops and grapefruit.

Taste: a dry hopped grapefruit, spice, and orange peel.

Mouthfeel: extremely dry medium.

Overall:
This is an odd brew. While the aroma and flavors are nice, it is very very dry, yet smooth and pleasing. This is a definite try.
