Brewer's description:

Brooklyn Brewery Special Effects is a hoppy lager with peeled grapefruit and fresh zesty aromas with a clean bitter edge. A generous dry hopping results in lively hop notes and a clean finish.

Dryish opinion

Brooklyn Special Effects is the first non alcoholic beer from one of the USA's largest craft brewers. A slightly hoppy aroma with a light taste but perhaps a little on the thin side. No stand out bitterness or sweetness and little aftertaste. As its easy to find and often the only choice, if it's all that's available it’s a pleasant-enough option but others are better.
