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."

Crisp and refreshing, this is a good everyday beer. Not the most spectacular looking in the glass, but it has a nice taste of the hops without being real bitter and dry.

Fresh aroma of hops and malts. Flavour is mostly hop yet not bitter at that. Clean and refreshing but not a lot beyond that, really.

Pours a light copper color, with a medium, well-retained light tan head. Pretty big malt character, with a good amount of spice in there too. Mild hops are also present. The taste is mild as well, a little bit grainy, some malt and hop presence but neither is overly up front. Just a slight little bitterness in the finish. The aftertaste has a small tidbit of spice left on the palate. Decent I guess.

On the whole, a drinkable beer. Little bitter (hoppish) for a lager. Has more malt taste than normal lager also. Decent beer, nothing great. I agree that it is a good session beer."

As far as lagers go, it’s not a bad beer. But the plain taste of the lager makes me feel like this is a "go to" beer when you are in a NY hotel and it’s the only thing on tap.

Sampled at LCBO Summerhill Beer Festival, Toronto ON. A bit dark for a lager, and a bit too strong/bitter too. The blonde that poured it was sure excited about it though.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 Fad. Mget lækker lager. God balance imellem umlen og malten. Samtidig utrolig smagfuld i forhold til procenterne. Alt i alt meget anbefalelsesværdig.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draft pint, Russel’s, Bloomsburg PA. Pours a clear dark amber body with an off-white head that left some light lacing. Malty aroma with some light caramel and toasted notes. A hint of butterscotch and some light floral hops. The flavor is pretty clean, with biscuity and toasted malt, a hint of sweetness up front, lightly bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate soft carbonation. A little sticky sweetness and a hint of graininess on the finish. Overall, a pretty decent beer, a nice compliment to the medium rare burger I was having.

Bottle with expiration date of Oct. 07. Pours a rich copper color but almost no head. Smell a hint of malts and a little fruity. Fresh and mild, not overpowering. Tastes a bit hoppy. An above average brew.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 surprisingly red/brown. guess i was expecting a pale lager. smell is surprisingly malty considering that, but mostly subdued. flavor is similar, but pretty balanced and drinkable. i like it.
