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."

Slight sweet malted nose. Amber yellow in color with a decent white head. Dies quickly. Crisp and frothy on the tongue. Long dry ending hangs around a while. Brooklyn seems to specialize on this.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is very sweet and bready with some honey, grain, caramel, and subtle hop aroma. Flavor has a very sweet/grainy mix thing going on with some light summer fruit and honey. Hop flavor is mild with a lighter mouthfeel that is pleasant, if boring. Decent for what it is, but this one has never really done it for me.

bottle - Pours clear light amber with a thin, white head that sticks around and laces well. There’s a sweet malt aroma with a hint of fruit esters. The taste has a good hops balance to go with the pale malt. There’s a refreshingly bitter finish. Brooklyn Lager is a very solid session brew.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Poured a nice copper color. Modest off-white head that dissipated completely. Decent lacing. Aroma is a nice, modestly hopped caramel malt. Refreshing. Flavor is malty, nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. A slight hint of butter and a slightly astringent aftertaste. This lingering astringency which is so often present in Ambers and Brown ales is why I don’t enjoy these beers more.

BelgianBeerGal (3776) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle poured into shaker. Dark amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma had a nice hint of hop. Flavour starts with more hop but finishes well balanced with malt. Nice lager.

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 Pours dark amber color with thick white head and lots of lacing. Nice citrus aroma with sweet malt in the background. Taste is clean with a nice citrus hop bite at the start, a well-balanced malt backbone, and then lingering hop bitterness. A very well done beer that’s easy to drink, very refreshing. A lager with a bit of an APA personality.
