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."

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2008
341ml Bottle: Pours a deep peachy brown, cloudy, and with a decent white head. Aroma of cinnamon rolls, rock candy, floral hops, caramel malts, and yeast. The flavour is spicy and hoppy, nice and bitter, with a very nice caramel sweet malt to balance. Grassy, earthy tones in the aftertaste. Very nice!

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
This is a very solid beer - nice robust flavor, with an excellent taste of hops. The clear, amber color is impressive, with a nice head. Reminds me of a mix between a lager and an IPA.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Poured from bottle to a lager glass a nice amber color - a nice dark amber for a American lager. Pours carbonated and with a decent head. You can smell the hops right after the pour, very hoppy. A little bitter on the palate but the taste is very consistent and smooth. Certainly at the top of my Lager list and probably my favorite Brooklyn.

Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a light head. Hops, orange and some malty caramel on the nose. The taste has some sweet caramel notes and some nice hops. Good QPR on this lager!

geoalex (12) - Frederick, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Tasted 09 Feb 2008. Clear orangish amber color with a carmel, malty aroma. The malt flavor has a "biscuity" sweet flavor ending with a earthy, peppery, bitter hop character. Has the bitterness at the end expected in lagers. Oily texture whole way through the tasting.
