Old Review

Got this in a sixer from Grub Mart here in Jacksonville. I had a bit of a problem with this one. Every bottle in the sixer that I opened was overly carbonated, and spewed out of the bottle once the cap was popped. Didn't matter if it was the first or last I opened, all did the same thing with a few hours elapsing between the first and the last.

A: Amber, more orange than brown, with a slight, white head.

S: Malt, hops, grains, yeast, and fruits.

T: More malt than expected. The hops and a bit of citrus round it out. Not bad tasting.

M: Very thin and watery and flat. This may be due to my carbonation issue.

D: Will have to revisit this. Don't know if I got a bad batch with crazy carbonation or what, but did not leave a great impression. I will give it the benefit of the doubt.

Served In: Pint Glass

Brooklyn's Lager builds a towering, rocky custard head that appears creamy on top, but the side profile shows swiss-cheese like bubbles getting larger as the foam settles. Sticky, honeycomb lacing left behind. A torrential up-pour of carbonation streams through a clear, golden-copper body. This is what lagers SHOULD look like. Clean, crisp aroma, with a hint of sweet crystal malts and German hops (Saaz?) leading the way. A floral, green grassiness lingers in the background with some graham cracker and honey.

Lots of herbal grassiness to the hops, very well done. Balance of light, toasted amber malts and traces of sourdough. A fresh, hoppy bitterness lingers into the finish almost like a good IPA. Mouthfeel sits between medium and light, with a bubbly carbonation level that kicks up the spice mid-palate. Gets a little sticky with residuals towards the finish, but it's a minor nit-pick, as this is probably one of the best readily available lagers out there. Kudos to Brooklyn for crafting a sessionable, hoppy, and extremely tasty American Lager.
