A Review of Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyn Lager.
In this beer review I will be looking at Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyn Lager. The beer is classified as an American amber/red lager. The beer clocks in at 5.4% ABV and is brewed year round, so if you want to pick it up it should be pretty easy to find. The food pairing for this beer is shellfish, sushi, and grilled white meats. Now lets get in to the look, smell, taste and feel of Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyn Lager.
This beer pours a deep honey amber color, much darker than other comparable larger. The head of the beer was a great two fingers of thick foam. The beer left a great lacing on the glass and was moderately carbonated. Overall the look was a 4 out of 5 stars.
It smells of crisp biscuit, grainy caramel malt, mild aged, indistinct citrus, and punchy leafy, grassy, and sort of herbal hops. Overall the nose was a 3.5 out of 5 stars
Taste was refreshing and definitely a little different than most lagers I’ve had. This beer was almost a pale ale taste upfront for me. There were fresh citrus and lemon hops upfront with a mild but malty backbone of caramel and toffee. Mouth feel is creamy and lightly carbonated. Over all the taste the beer was a 3.75 out of 5 stars.
Overall I would say that is beer was slightly above average. It was not a bad beer, but nothing to put in front of the pack. Overall I would rate this beer as an 85/100. It is a good beer that could be a great beer with just a few minor corrections to the recipe.
