After a very busy day, I’m at home drinking a Brooklyn Lager. Last time I had any of this stuff was, well, in Brooklyn, at a pizzeria under the shadow of the Bridge. Nice pizza, very nice beer. The location may have changed, but the beer hasn’t. Now think of American lager, and you probably think of some appalling light beer; this couldn’t be much further away. It’s a lovely amber colour – and fairly dark amber at that. It’s plenty rich and malty enough, but is heavily hopped for a really great taste. Now back in Brooklyn, it was really warm evening after a very hot day; today, it’s sub-zero out there, but the beer copes just as well now as it did then. A very decent beer. 7/10.
