Brooklyn Lager

Watching a football game. Drinking a beer.

(The actual bottle, but not from the actual day.)

I wrote: "Brooklyn Lager. Smells like lychee (a type of fruit). It has a nice fruit smell. It has a nice taste. 5.2% ABV. Best before Jan XX 2012."


*This took over a year before getting posted! Surely it won't be the last post to experience such a delay.

Website Information:

In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. It is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.
