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."

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 15, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 Bottle. Pours amber, clear, with a two fingered off white head int a Sam Adams lager glass. Aroma is a bit of sweet malt mixed in with a nice hoppy floral aroma, though understated. Flavor is nice and basic: very drinkable balance of malt, caramel up front fading into a nice dry, hoppy bite at the end. Versatile, drinkable beer.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2008
Draught at the Magician, New York City. This was served too cold, of course, but it’s still a classic beer: full-flavoured with a nice sweet malty base and a long, dry finish. I had this several times on my recent visit to New York and it made me wish (and I know that this is sacrilege for a Camra member) that there were decent keg beers widely available in the Britain so I wouldn’t have to drink John Smith’s or Guinness when I go to bars with no cask beers.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2008
Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is honey with a bit of hops. The flavor is malty with a nice little hop kick to it. Somewhat grassy on the finish. Pretty decent lager.

IPAGargoyleGuy (140) - Troy, NY, New York, USA - APR 4, 2008
Not usually a big fan of lagers, but the extra hops in here really make it pretty good. Grassy and slightly sweet with a toffee malt flavor.

ketchepillar (1184) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 3, 2008
Fairly nutty with a nice malt base that was fairly sweet but not overly so. A good amount of hops as well. Very solid business.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2008
12oz bottle: Poured a golden honey color with a suitable white top. The aroma is a delicate balance of honey and caramel malt and grassy and piney hops. Soft and inviting. Drinks easy with a subtle dose of sweet malts and rindy hops. Finishes slightly bitter and leaves me wanting more. Good.
