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."

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.

demitriustown (1134) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Aroma is a spicy, flowery scent at first, a bready malt characteristic , and a smokey roasted nut note on top of it all. Appearance is a semi-translucent reddish/amber color with a medium sized tan head that diminishes into a soapy tan film. Taste is nice malt overtones, with a bit of really bready overtone, a nice medium to robust lager that is really exciting my taste buds. Palate is lightly bitter with a lingering bitterness that fades over time. Overall, A darn good lager in my opinion. Cheers!!

Good lager, cloudy coppy colored, which I thought was interesting. Good lager, but Yueng is still king in my book. Bluengalingalang, that’s what I say.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours a clear amber with a tiny white head and not much lacing. The scent was a good balance of hops, malt, floral notes and citrus. A little thin on palate, but not a bad beer for a bbq. A good enough session brew.

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Bright, clear amber appearance with a large off white head and good lacing. Spicy hop aroma mingles with some toasted malts. Slightly sweet malt taste; hops project more of a floral flavor; bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Nicely put together and will go well with most pub grub. Sampled from a can with no metallic off-notes.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is sweet malt with the slightest hoppiness. The flavor is somewhat muted. Light sweet malts and light hops combine to a forgettable finish. This was an average American lager.
