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."

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2006
Pours a darkish golden with a bubbly wite head. Floral and slightly grassy hops on the nose, with some light malt toastyness and a little corn. The body is a little thin, with some corn and some sweetness from the crystal malt. the finish is very dry and crisp. Its really isnt too different, but as far as your average lager goes its about as good as it gets.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
The truth is I am really not a personal fan of this type of lager. That said, this is much better than almost any other American Malt Lagers that I’ve had. Appearance: This beer pours a coppery light brown, decent white head. Smell: Raw barley was the overwhelming aroma. There was also malts, and a bit of green (hops) in the nose. Taste: I found the taste to be a bit watery, with lots of empty space. Light malts up front with a quite hoppy aftertaste. Above average compared to American Macros but certainly not a very interesting beer in comparison to other craft beers or American All-Malt Lagers. Aproachable. Mouthfeel: A bit thin and watery; typical of an American lager but certainly nothing special in the mouthfeel (just okay). Drinkability: There is nothing very interesting about this beer but it is cool clear and refreshing, like water. It is definitely a significantly sessionable beer, with low ABV and no extreme flavors you could drink it all night; and still walk home (w/o stumbling). Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Big on the malt (as advertised) which had me pleased, it was also nice to see the respectable hop profile presented here. Strong floral hops help balance a semi-sweet, doughy malty flavor. This beer will not blow your mind, but it is a highly enjoyable lager, and reasonably priced and widely available to boot.

Dark enough to pass for a pale ale. Tastes almost like a PA as well. Delicate malty flavor with a nice helping of hops. Great lager.
