The Brooklyn Brewery in Utica, New York. The front of the label prominently says "Brewed In New York". I've heard it mentioned before, but this was the first time I felt they were being a bit misleading considering the name of the brewery and its location; Utica is technically in New York State, so you decide. Nice label with the classic Brooklyn Brewery script B presented in blue and silver with green accents. Best before April, 2011.
Malty with bread and a little herbal aroma. Sweet start flavorwise, with a bit of caramel, but that is overtaken right away by a strange medicinal and vegetal taste. Very unpleasant. Hops but not bitter. Tea, earth, dirt. Wow, I really can't believe I am dumping a Brooklyn Brewery beer, but yep, good-bye! Yuck to the yuck! Worst beer from this brewery to date. Thank God Garrett isn't coming anytime soon. The 6.1% alcohol was not noticeable, at least for the portion I drank.
