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."

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. I’m not much of a lager guy to begin with, so i suppose i already came into this expecting not to like it that much. However, the taste is there. Not too much else to say about it.

355ml bottle. Pours a light copper colour with a small off white head that deminishes quickly. Sweet aroma with notes of malt, hops and caramel. Taste is slightly less sweet than the aroma with a nice bitter finish. very smooth with good carbonation. a top notch lager.

On tap at the brewery. Golden color, small white head. Very nice for a lager. Hoppy flavor, slightly malty, very drinkable. Another good Brooklyn effort.

Poured a light copper color with thick white head. Sweet smell. Taste was just slightly sweet malts, caramel, and a tad of bitter hops on the finish. Clean and refreshing. A great solid summer brew.

DrnkMcDermott (2873) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 12 oz. bottle, best before 7/07. Time to start auditioning summer beers, I think, and Brooklyn’s just showing up at Sam’s Wines. Brassy color under a think eggshell head, very clear, light bubbles. Hoppy notes in the headspace come out when opened; in the glass it mingles with light but firm Vienna malts. Taste continues those Vienna malts with a matching hop profile, a little mellower than the usual Saaz. More spicy than flowery, but "flowery" is a difficult hop characteristic to preserve in a bottle. A fine American lager indeed.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 You know, I’ve never really been much of a lager guy. But if I was, this would be my lager of choice. Pours a nice light amber colour, with a thin creamy head. A lingering aroma of malts, and whiskey, with strong notes of hops. A very tasty treat, lots of dry hop flavour, with lighter notes of malts and caramel. Nice bitter dry finish which lasts until the next sip.The only thing that stops this beer from being amazing is the watery mouthfeel. Still a Top Notch beer.Will buy again and would certainly reccomend to lager lovers.

Sudsy white head, a lot of caramel in the flavour. Pretty sweet, but it settled in and by the end of the glass was alright. Faint yeast breadinesss.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2007
Aroma: Thick floral citrus character. Piney resinous strawlike malt character Appearance: Light tan head with thick tight head. Copper gold Flavour: Intense rich bitterness balanced with a full crystal malt flavour. Clean, no esters or diacetyl charater. Mouthfeel: Medium full bodied sparkling with a lingering stickiness left on the lips. Overall: Complex and well balanced. Rich and assertive resinous bitterness contrasted with a full, rich, sweet but not cloying malt character.
