Brooklyn Lager

===
Note 01/10
===
(I have a feeling that this used to be categorized on BA as a Vienna Lager but now falls under the American Amber/Red banner. This is certainly in line with what Brooklyn says about the beer, and the dry-hopping does seem to lend a typical American abruptness to the brew).

12 oz bottle. Amber hue, minimal head but nice lace. Bumped appearance scores for the beer in general.
Remains quite dry and surprisingly bitter when considering the Vienna lager roots style.
Nose and tastes reflect some deep caramel malts and the dry-hopping seems to add to the edgy character in a surprising way. This beer is less gentle than I remember it before this review but I think that is a good thing.
Definite American twists and influences on a classic European lager.

Original Review 11/04

If you are thinking “regular” macro colored lager here, think again. It pours with an amber hue and has a much drier and hoppier finish than some of the same style. It also conatains a somewhat of more distinctive bitter finish and aftertaste – not of course that this is a bitter beer by any stretch of the imagination, but in relative terms it seems to drink that way.
Mouthfeel gives medium carbonation and the beer feels slightly less crisp than many in the lager category but still delivers a satisfying experience.
