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."

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 excellent beer. I had it out of a bottle in Florida and was impressed by how well it poured and its overall light brown appearance. The flavor is strong yet smooth and has a great aftertaste. I would reccomend in a bar setting, especially during the evening.

One of my favorites. This is for me was the epihany of lagers. I remember when I was 19 first tasting this and saying, "wow!" Really enjoyable, truly a everyday beer - great with many foods....simply put -> buy a case and never be disappointed.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2007
12 oz. bottle: Pours an amber gold wtih a thin off white head that quickly diminishes. Fruity aroma has hints of floral and a mild hop character. Malty flavor has hints of citrus, dry fruits with a touch of caramel. Finishes well with no lingering aftertaste like other lagers. A good everyday beer to keep in the fridge.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Pours a honey to amber colur with a large white frothy white head. Aroma is HOPPY, citrus hops, floral hops with an outline bread and caramel malts. Initial taste is bready malts with an outpowering bitter citrus hops. Bitter hops linger on the palate with a mix of spices and other dark fruits. Good lacing of the glass with a decent head retention. Active carbonation that was perfectly matched.

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Pours a ruby color, with a mild malty aroma. With a hint of hops and soap smell. Above average overall, not a big lager fan, one of the better lagers I’ve had though. Worth a try.

Aroma is a spicy, flowery scent at first, a bready malt characteristic , and a smokey roasted nut note on top of it all. Appearance is a semi-translucent reddish/amber color with a medium sized tan head that diminishes into a soapy tan film. Taste is nice malt overtones, with a bit of really bready overtone, a nice medium to robust lager that is really exciting my taste buds. Palate is lightly bitter with a lingering bitterness that fades over time. Overall, A darn good lager in my opinion. Cheers!!
