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."

Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Clear, golden, well-carbonated beer with a lovely, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, lightly hoppy, and balanced. Nice, fruity, balanced flavor where some piny notes also find theire way. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and nicely hopped finish. A lovely lager. Wish more brewers could follow this example. (070512)

One good lookin’ beer. Rich, but not too heavy for summer drinking. Little bit of caramel and lots of hops for a vienna.

Arrrghhh! hoppy, heavy and more bitter than your mother in law. Call me uncultured, but i didn’t like this beer at all.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a large off-white head that lasts leaving great lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light caramel, and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma with a well balanced bitterness. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes crisp and dry. A very flavorfull and refreshing Vienna Lager.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle. Dark amber appearance is remarkably dark for a lager. Generous floral/hop aroma with a gooey drop of golden syrup. Good hop bitterness clings throughout the flavour cycle, generating excellent length. Rich palate. Further sips reveal wood and floral characteristics. A full-flavoured lager that deserves the pedestal it sits on.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Ive had a love hate realationship with Brooklyn lager. At first I really disliked this beer, too heavy and always just sits in my stomach. Now I’ve arrived at a detente, it’s ok, will drink if necessary.

Draft...amber in color, strong hop taste, white head, this is one of Brooklyn’s best in my opinion. And a lager, no less.

[Sampled in 2005.] Maybe not the best from Brooklyn, but I could give it another chance. Boring and unbalanced. Watery!

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear orangey/copper with a small white frothy head and some nice visible carbonation. Aroma was malt dominant and slightly sweet with some earth notes of grass and dirt. Flavor was refreshing and smooth with some floral hops notes, a little sweetness and a malty aftertaste that lingered nicely. As far as lagers go this is one pretty darn good beer.
