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.
