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."

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2008
LCBO about $2 per bottle. Hoppy aroma. Copper with a foamy white head that sticks around and coats the glass. Creamy, hoppy dry, clean taste. Easy drinking, all "lagers" should taste this could. Dry bitter after-taste.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
35,5cl bottle @ home. Copper! very dark for a lager - we shall continue... but found not much, except malt and a very bitter hoppy finish, but hey, the last time i looked it said ’lager’ on the bottle. Where did the 3.43 average come from?

On tap. Pours a med-dark amber, small head. This is a full bodied solid lager. Nice fruity nose with a strong malt finish. A great session beer, and very drinkable. I could be wrong, but I am under the impression that the tap beer is brewed in brooklyn, and the bottle version is brewed in upstate New York. This is an old standby particularly when I am in places lacking micros and good imports, and I am never disappointed.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Amber with a fine head. Spicy and flawery aroma with notes of citrus. The flavours are grape and iron on a malty background.

Something I drink quite a bit, a nice initial pour with a good orangish color. Strong aroma with a consistent taste throughout while drinking.

ILduce (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 On tap in namesake @ the Bier Markt: Amber-orange with medium head and healthy lacing...good looks. Aromas are strong with sweet malt, fruit and floral hops. Tastes hoppy with undertones of citrus and butterscotch. Bitter finish. Very impressive.

I tried this beer on February 26, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario. The beer poured a dark translucent amber colour with a white head which disappates to permanent lacing. The aroma was slightly malty, but had an unmistakable floral hoppiness that was a prelude of good things to come. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour had some hints of malt, but was very hoppy, with some grapefruit like bitterness in the finish. A very good beer.

Strong aroma and flavor. Hopsy taste and just enough kick at the end. A good looking and tasty brew.

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Very crisp with a tiny bit more hops on the tongue then most logers, the smell reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston lager, but agin with just a bit more hops.
