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."

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Re-rate. Bottle. Sweet hop nose with grassy malts. Deep clear gold slow but active carbonation drifting towards a big frothy head. Wonderful smooth palate. Full bodied but not heavy. Flavor is dry bitter citrus peel. Such a nice beer for all occasions. Upped flavor and overall score after a few bottles of this reminded me that it is possibly the perfect session beer for me.

The most impressive, widely available beer regularly served in the tri-state region’s pubs and bars. Pours a clear amber-brown with a solid off-white head that fades to a consistent cap. Great lacing. The aroma is fresh and floral with fruit undertones of banana and sweet, bready malts. The flavour is deliciously floral, citrusy and bitter, with a biting hoppy aftertaste that lingers for a while on the back of your tongue. Caramelized fruits are also evident in the aftertaste. The nice dry finish dries the sides of the mouth. The body is medium with a suitable, tingly carbonation.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 On tap... golden brown with a off white head. Fruity and distinct aroma. Love the hoppiness in this beer. Nice fruity flavors. Subtle touch.

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.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Pours light tan, with a moderate head. Aroma is mildly fruity, rather hoppy. Tingly mouth feel, moderate fullness. Flavor is lightly fruity, flowery, and solid. Bitter hop aftertaste.
