Brooklyn Brewery “Silver Anniversary Lager”

      Ever drink a “Surprise Beer”? A beer that may be labeled a certain style but really isn’t Silver Anniversary Lagerthat style. This can either be a good thing or a bad thing. Doing minimal research (i.e. a Google search) can prevent bad surprises. It can also help steer you toward a brew you typically would not have tried based upon the style printed on the label. Being that I mostly review brews I like, my recent “Surprise Beer” was a great experience!
      Brooklyn Brewery’sSilver Anniversary Lager” is a Doppelbock brewed to reminisce the original Lager Brooklyn released in 1988. It pours a deep copper color and is topped with a big sticky white head. The nose delivers yeast, with floral hops and hints of fruit. The taste is full of earthy citrus, caramel, toast and dark fruit flavors. The mouthfeel is full and smooth with moderate carbonation. The finish is bitter with a decent hop bite, and a touch of alcohol. The 9% abv is hidden incredibly well by the way! This has become an instant fav for me! I hope that this makes a reappearance. Here’s to Good Beers!

  1. I would describe it exactly the same way, a completely unhyped, unexpected surprise.

    For me, it has a great combo of taste experiences…the malt of a great German bock, a frutiy/spiciness of a Belgian Ale and the hoppiness of a decent Pale Ale or IPA.

    Joe, this beer is definitely a ninja of sorts with sneaking many unexpected flavors into one’s palate! You are also right that it is very undef hyped! Cheers Dude!
