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."

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2007
Clear amber with a good sized head. Medium body. Very clean flavour, sweet with caramel/toasted malt, well balanced with a good hit of hop bitterness. Straight-forward and refreshing.

Amber color. Great long lasting head. Very hoppy for a lager. I am not sure I have tasted a better lager.

Mike4686 (120) - Bayonne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Draft, copper color with a medium lasting head, very good hoppy flavor for a lager, wasn’t expecting it to have such a nice bite to it, nice bitter finish, overall it was a decent beer, nothing too great though.

Quake1028 (633) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Honey orange colored body with a two finger, sudsy, pillowy off white head. Spotty lacing. Hop aromas pour into the room upon the inital opening of this beer. Also we have some malt notes, honey, biscuit dough and grapefruit, but mostly floral hops. Hops, citrus, dough and sweet honey come through as the beer is consumed. Mouthfeel is heavily astringent, light to medium bodied, somewhat sticky and oily on the palate. FInish is short in length, a bit bitter but overall pretty bland and finishes a bit watery at the very end. Was hoping for more.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Draft. Golden color with nice maltly toffee aroma. Very drinkable brew that reminds me of a cross between Sam Adams and Yuengling. A great brew that I will surely have more of. One of my favorites.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
12 oz. bottle, best before May 08. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting rich creamy and frothy beige head. Bready, toffee, orange, and grapefruit aroma. Bready and lightly sweet malts, a touch of toffee flavour, then a juicy grapefruit and orange peel bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and combines the crispness of a lager with the juiciness of an IPA. Good stuff - I want more.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2007
pint - Aroma is mild malts with a touch of hops. Pours transparent gold with a small bubbly head and great lacing. Flavor is strong with sweet malts and the hops are more pronounced. Clean palate. Drinkable on a hot day and really not a bad brew.

Goodgrief (1877) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2007
July 2005 - This beer pours with a nice foamy head and a nice clear brown lager color. But let’s get down to it. It’s hoppy. The hopheads will like it because of this. I think it’s kind of lacking other than having more hops than a normal lager. The taste is a little on the thin side and frankly I find the hoppy taste out of place in a lager like this.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2007
Pours a clear light copper with a small but lasting head and minimal lace. Very nice aroma, malty and crispy. Taste is perfectly balanced - sweet without that sickly honey flavour, perfectly set against crisp floral/citrus hops ending in a dry finish. Creamy body with perfect carbonation. This is an excellent lager, both drinkable and appreciable.
