COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Lager, the Brewery's flagship label, is New York's "hometown" beer, brewed to a pre-Prohibition recipe that dates back to the days when Brooklyn was the brewing capital of the East Coast. Brooklyn Lager has won numerous awards. Wrote Michael Jackson in the Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to Beer: "The dry-hopped, fresh, flowery, firm, flavourful, Brooklyn Lager **-*** started well, in 1988, and has gained in character since."

this is a pretty good brew. I’d expect nothing less from Brooklyn. Real nice appearance and aroma. malty and slightly bitter with a dry finish. Got it in a variety pack - can’t wait for the next bottle

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Clear copper brew. Frothy head that lingers. Nose is mostly green hops and lots of em. Unmistakably dryhopped. Very chunky bitterness in the nose. Malt are absent. Carbonation is very apparent. Flavors are interesting for a vienna. Not hardly any malt sweetness mostly hoppy green goodness.As the beer warms more sweetness shines through. Very honey-ish with a bitter hop edge. As per style...I don’t know. As per beer....pretty decent

Bottle – Floral (from hop), malty nose; A bit thin but very fine bitter body; Quite bitter finish with a little hop to it. Ordinary, but pleasant beer.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a translucent amber with an average light tan fluffy head. Aroma was a nice floral and citrus hop with a caramel malt balance. Flavor was malty with a light hop mix. Flavor was solid but a step down from the aroma. A very solid lager though.
