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."

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 14, 2008
Bottle sample at a beer festival in kibbutz Ma’abarot, May ’08. Deep golden with a small white head. Aroma of slightly floral hops. Flavor starts sweetish with some malt, caramel and bready notes, and and finishes bitter and hoppy, a bit sharp. Medium-bodied. Rather nice.

jrmac (333) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Beer poured a golden amber with thick white head. Aromas of hops, flowers. Tastes like caramel malt and hops. Touch of bread dough. Best lager beer I have ever had.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2008
On tap at the Field House in Phila. Dark but clear mahogany color with firm head, nice looking beer. Mild malty aroma, a hint of hops. The flavor was doughy and caramel malts without being too sweet. The malts were well balanced with earthy and bitter hops, but not overpowering. Medium body, well balanced flavors, and a dry finish made this a very drinkable and enjoyable quaff. I hope it is as good from the bottle as I plan on buying a case. Well done lager.

Guy at Jasper’s in Nashua recommended this as complementary to Sam Adams Lager. Doesn’t quite measure. A little hoppier than I like, and seemed fizzy to me. I am not a Vienna aficionado, so take with grain of salt. But in my humble opinion, it’s a rare case of the mainstream Sam actually being better than the micro.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
A dark amber colored lager with large bubbles and a medium beige frothy head. Great nose! Bready, some caramel malt, and hoppy aroma. O... its a vienna that makes more sense =p. Toasty, slightly burned, caramel malt flavor with a modest hop bit. Very sweet and bitter. Doesn’t come close to Eliot Ness in terms of character or balance. The malt is almost syrupy. Tastes like an English lager more than a Vienna.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Amber pour with nice off white head, slight lacing. Bready nose with some floral/herbal/grassy hop shining through. Flavor is big on the noble hops, mild citrus, bread crust on the finish. Smooth medium body. Very drinkable and much better than their ales.

On tap at Laguardia International terminal before going to Paris with Rebecca. Brooklyn Lager is a very nice amber color with a light-orange head. The aroma is full of hops with a nicely tinted caramel background. The flavor is very well balanced with hops and sweet malt. This is a very nice beer.
