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."

Poured copper, nice head - true lager - rich, full flavored, a bit flowery, as usual one of the best from the bottle

Nice strong lager with a finish that hangs around with for a good finish. A lager not for the light beer drinker.

Semi-dark lager with aroma of grapefruit and grain. Taste is grapefruit (probably from cascade hops) and bread spices. Quite lot of acidity wich make your taste buds go yay!

Just bought a book by the founder of the Brooklyn brewery, thought I’d try some of his stuff. This reminds me of Sam Adams Boston Lager- similar copper-roasted color, bright hoppiness, floral character and decidedly American taste. Enjoyed each sip. Nice one.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Bottle from Tescos, Dingwall. Lovely copper colour - looks extremely appetising. Malty and flavoursome. Nice long lasting hoppy bitterness to finish. This reminds me a lot of Budvar and i probably marginally prefer it to this. Great saazy finish but less smooth and slightly more astringent than the Budvar. This definitely make sme want to taste more of their beers!

12-oz. Thanks, AbusedGoat! Pours ruddy amber with a big moussy platinum blonde head that settles to lace and rocks after one sip. Spicy saaz aromas; I poured this a little warmer than cellar cool and it was not quite a room-filler but definitely an area filler, and it’s showing a very pleasant nose for a lager. Nice earthy, spicy hops on the finish as well as the nose--more complexity on the finish, which lingers with a bit of the bitter. This is really nice, refreshing stuff. It’s only 64F here today, but that’s warmish for Seattle, and this is a solid Indian Summer session beer.

Clear dark amber body with a creamy tan head. Sweet caramel aroma with some dark malt. Sweet malty flavor.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2006
Bottled. Amber color with small head. Citrusy, sweetish, caramelly, raisiny and vinous aroma. Rich taste with citrusy and herbal hops, firm bitterness, dry hop flavor, salty minerals and light caramel. Citrusy dry hop finish. Balanced and satisfying beer.

A Mes rate: Malty nose. Decent golden amber looks. More malt in the flavour with a dry hoppy finish. *yawns*

Nice fruity aroma with a lot of aroma hops. The taste is a little dissapointing, though. It is not as obvious as I would have thought of a brooklyn beer. However, the hops are great. The aftertaste is fruity and has a quite long nice bitter finish.
