Brewery: Brooklyn Brewery
Bottle Size: 355ml
Taste:A strong, hoppy flavour with a fruity kick
Colour:Blonde, reminiscent of a pale ale
Aroma:Fruity, malty aroma
This beer is simply wonderful. It has a hoppy, strong initial flavour, but is balanced with a fruity punch which really leaves it tasting surprisingly delicate.
The fruity aspect tastes quite tropical, and the best description I can give is that I imagine this is what a shandy would taste like when made with Lilt!
I was expecting much harsher flavours from a 7.2% lager, but this is beautifully balanced, easy on the pallette and deliciously refreshing.
It’s not one of the more common Brooklyn offerings in the UK in my experience, but it’s a really nice drink and I’d recommend it to anyone who had the chance to pick some up. It disappeared surprisingly quickly, and left me wanting more.
