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."

spporras (259) - FINLAND - NOV 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 (Bottle BB 07/07; ABV 5.2%) Fruity (citrus), hoppy (flowery) and malty aroma. Amber colour, clear and small, white, very slightly lasting head with good lacing. Toffee malty, citrus fruity and moderately bitter flavour. Medium-bodied and softly carbonated palate. Good brew, which does not taste lager! 10/03/07 (original rating was 7/3/7/3/14)

Amber body wih some lasting off white head. Aroma is floral and hoppy with slight caramel malts. Nice bitterness at the front with a slight citrus and herb flavour before ending bitter and dry. Nice mouthfeel, full and fresh. A basic but well built beer.

Bottle 355 ml. Dark red body with a thick white/reddish head. Attractive floral and fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet malty, rather fruity and hoppy. This is one of the best lagers I ever tasted so far.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Lots of flowery hops and honey in the nose. Chewy amber body with a lasting blanket of suds. Caramel malt with a big spicy grapefruit hop finish. A wicked kick of rounded, lingering bitterness. Not dissimilar to Samuel Adams Boston Lager, and far too rich and tangy to be classified as a lager.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Golden color. Thick, frothy head lasts a long time. Aroma of fresh hops and malty. Smoth caramel flavor with a pleasant roasted wheat nose. Extremely full bodied and complex. Very nice lager.

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
From bottle. Great aroma of hops and honey, sweet but very distinct. Clear in appearance. Orange, yellow in colour with a thin head. I must say the taste gives an impression of quality to this beer. Tangy orange and malty. Another U.S beer ive tried recently and I am impressed. I would have this again.
