Review by Rob
In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centres in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favourites.
Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in colour and displays a firm malt centre 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 flavourful 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.
Aroma of dry hops, colour is darker than expected for a lager, a hint of usual fruit as anticipated from an American lager, the initial taste of dry hops is evident, a full bodied and robust lager we have here, definitely a grown up lager and quite enjoyable.
