Anderson Valley El Steinber (Can)

20140116-003404.jpg

NAME: Anderson Valley El Steinber (Can)
TYPE: Dark Lager
ORIGIN: Boonville, CA
ABV: 5.5%
REVIEW: Drank straight from the can. Grassy, piney, roasted smell. Dark cola color from what I saw on the lip of the can, malty, burnt toast taste, a little tinny, good carbonation, fuller mouthfeel. Kind of an ashy dark lager that’s interesting but not exactly good tasting. Or should I say good will tasting. Is that a joke? I don’t even know.

Brooklyn Brewery Lager

20140116-003353.jpg

NAME: Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager
TYPE: Pre-Prohibition Style Lager
ORIGIN: Brooklyn, NYC
ABV: 5.2%
REVIEW: Pours amber with substantial head, fresh smelling, nice citrusy hoppy aroma, malty and clean tasting with a nice hoppy kick at the end. Slightly biscuity mouthfeel. Really nice, drinkable lager to wash down some greasy Chinese food.
