Brooklyn Local 1 (Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY)

Big, bubbly white head that lingers a half inch thick in the glass after a big pile  sitting on top on the pour over an old gold ale that brightens to a dull yellow. Banana, cloves, fruity esters and a hint of pepper in the nose. Very clean and a pretty yeast smell. Pepper and spice notes strengthen in the taste and build in the nosealmost like a preview. Significant carbonation intensifies the flavorsespecially the spice. Extremely well balanced and bouncy. Fun beer that I will savor through the night.
