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."

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Bottled 355ml. Pours a light orange amber beer. Nice unexpected color. Wonderful crystal malt aromas, reminds me somewhat of Samuel adams boston lager. Some eucalyptus? Sweet malt, excellent. Flowery, some caramel. Dominated by the hops. Good hoppy taste that can’ t quite match the aromas. Apricot, peach flavors. Dry finish. An excellent lager! Rerate: Definetely a very good beer. Staying with the initial rating of 3.6.

pintbypint (2784) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007
12oz brown bottle. Orange gold colour with a full fluffy head, leaves some sticky lacing. Slight floral hops scent with background malt. Flavour has a lot of malt, citrus/apricot/fruit notes, finishes with some grassy and floral hops. A dryier finish, medium body with light carbonation. Good drinkability, great hot weather beer.

DuffMan (7467) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2007
Clear bright bronze, yellowish rocky head with decent retention. Soft toffee and faintly floral aromas. Same flavours roll into the palate with a dry finish. Delicious!

jlruthven (583) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Very good lager. Poured a surprisingly amber hue, with decent head. Nose is very floral, with some hops, malty balance. Taste reflects the smell, again much more floral and spring-time-ish than I expected. Very good session beer; highly recommended.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2007
6 pack bottles. Surprised how amber it was- thought it would be more a yellow shade. A small head remains for a long while, good lacing too. Starts sweet, ends with a lingering bitterness. More body / complexity than I was expecting- I enjoyed this beer.

Touche (57) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Ok brooklyn. Brooklyn lager was one that got me into the finer side of beer. Fruity and toasty with hints of nuts but overall a simple thin taste that gets to you after cases and cases. Certainly not one of my first choices but when options run out, i rush to the lager.

mabjork (674) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Bottled. A bit on the red side. Minor white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy. The flavour is distinct with a hoppyness. There is a sweet aftertaste as well.

Out of a keg. out of my growler. out of my pint glass. out of my bladder. ok, ok, I didn’t really try it out of my bladder. But this beer was so suprisingly exceptionaly good that I gave it serious consideration.
