Brooklyn Brewery's Special Effects is a hoppy lager with an unexpected piney aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. The beer gets its golden, bready sweetness from dry-hopping with Citra and Amarillo hops-- a technique rarely used in alcohol-free brewing.
They use a specially developed fermentation method that limits the amount of alcohol that is created, while allowing more traditional beer flavors to develop. It tastes just like a regular beer, but therein lies the special effect: it's not.
Honestly, this truly is an extraordinary non-alocholic beer. The Hoppy Brew is exactly that, very hoppy with a great body, and full-flavour.
