Brooklyn Brewery, Utica, NY
Brooklyn Insulated Lager protects you against biting wind and soggy weather creeping in around the edges. Wrap yourself in lightly roasty malts and listen to the pitter-patter of gentle citrus hops and the soft, reassuring finish. If you still feel the chill, just add another layer and enjoy your insulation.
Almost black in color with a very light chocolate malt nose. Sweet up front, but the sweetness fades. Tiny bit of coffee bitterness at the end, but not enough to cut through the sweetness. Not a lot of other flavors. Not bad, but we prefer Wiseacre.
Would we get it again? No
