Local Flavor

Brooklyn Brewery LagerBrooklyn Brewery makes one of my favorite lagers. I have to confess that my favorite beers are ales and stouts. But this lager took me by surprise the first time I tried it, perhaps because it so closely resembles an ale. Upon pouring, the Brooklyn Lager gets a nice head on it, about 1/2 inch, that fades into a yeasty lace on top. This lager has a nice dark golden color, and light hoppy floral/citrus smell. Upon tasting, the beer has a very pleasant amount of hoppiness and light citrus flavor and is a little fizzy going down but leaves a nice malt flavor aftertaste. For a beer that Brooklyn Brewery describes simply as “brewed only with malted barley, hops, water and yeast”, those four ingredients truly show the magic behind beer.

The Facts:
ABV 5.2%
Original Gravity 13.2
