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."

Very sweet, malty, round taste. This beer was a happy surprise; I really enjoyed it. Good with pizza.

This has caught me by surprise, a nut brown lager with a lingering hoppy taste characteristic of an English ale.

I’ve got to say, this is a tastey beer. Seeing it anywhere and everywhere I went in NYC I was half expecting it to be weak and watered down ... what a plesent suprise! Had a nice lagar-esque flavor but with both malts and hops. Which is wierd becaus eI often think of lager as beeing rather tasteless. Hops are what make this beer good.

This one takes a little getting used to. Nice fizzy head and some decent hoppiness. Solid 3.

Bottle. Clear yellow colour and a sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was medium. Aroma was hop flowery and spicy, yeast as the predominant notes. Favour was light bitter and dry. Light bodied with a light bitter hoppy finish.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle best before Feb 07. Poured an amber color with a frothy off-white head that left lacing rings. The aroma was floral, citrus, and a hint of vegetables. The flavor was a nice mix of hops, caramel and floral. Medium body and bitter throughout. Very nice!

Pours a honey golden colour with a thin lace of head. Sharp, almost lemony hop aroma on the nose. More lemon hop flavors in the taste with a lingering sweetness that fades into sharp and pleasant hops. The tip of my tongue is tingling! Certainly a favorite for the style.

Brewed close in proximity to me, also a damn good beer. Prominent hops taste.

Can. Never truly tasted this from the can outside of the ballpark. Poured an amber color with a frothy mostly lasting off-white head. Dark bread/grainy malt and grassy hop aroma. Flavor of grainy cereal malts with a fair amount of hops in the back. A trace of soapiness noticeable. Light to medium bodied, slightly fizzy palate. Nothing exceptional considering what’s available on the market, but pretty good for a macro-craft beer in a can. I figure this is what good German-American immigrant lagers should have tasted like in bygone years.
