Review: Brooklyn East India Pale Ale

Brooklyn East India Pale Ale from Brooklyn Brewery
Rating: B-

Consumed on my last night in Shanghai before heading to Jakarta. This is one of the beers imported into Shanghai by American Craft Beer Partners.

Honey color, fairly clear with a two finger head. Mild aroma, obviously more in the English style than the American. Smells of grain, biscuit, and earthy hops. Taste runs much along the same lines. Slightly unexpected acidity, hope the bottle had not been sitting too long. Mouthfeel is light to medium in body, with appropriate carbonation. I have yet to be blown away by anything from Brooklyn. I was mildly disappointed by this one.
