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."

Lowe1983 (1349) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Pours a goldish-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted and sweet malts, and caramel. Flavor is very much the same with a sweet malt and caramel finish that lingers. The flavor of the floral hops and the malts blend together very nicely. Not my style of beer but I do enjoy this brew.

12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is very toasty and sweet. Fresh malt with a lovely floral hop aroma. Slightly perfumey. Some sweet caramel. Very fresh and toasty malts. Floral hops with a soft but insistent bitterness. I’m surprised I haven’t had this before, but I’m more surprised by how good it is.

Amber coloured. Sparkling white diminishing head. Aroma is citric and hoppy. Fruity, hoppy and quite bitter flavour. Medium bodied. Some sweetnes and acidity in finish.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2006
Bottle, 355ml. A copper-coloured pour with a small lasting head. Strong aromas of hops and citrus. Tastes very alcoholic, with hops, citrus and caramel. A nice hoppy, bitter, somewhat fruity finish with some acidity. Average carbonation. Pretty good.

tap. outside of madison square garden where the Celtics put a whooping on the highest paid, and worst team in the NBA. This beer represents the people of New York. I say it represents them well. It is revolting in just about every way. I’ll take a coors please. Do you guys remember when the Sox came back from 3 down?

Light amber. Great grassy fresh hoppy aroma -- from the dry hopping I suppose. Not much besides the hops though.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
I had this one at Shea Stadium, in a plastic cup. It had a big white head over a dark gold brew. The head up and left sip lines on the plastic cup. Well balanced hops and malt, neither too strong but had a full-bodied effect. A pleasant beer. It went down easy.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2006
Pours dark amber with little head. Aroma is very hoppy, though yet it has a spicy quality to it. This expands to the taste, where spices and a flowery feeling add to the hoppy bitterness...

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2006
A nice clean light brown beer. A rich full bitter flavor. Very flowery aroma and a little bit of that passed on to the taste.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Very nice lager, sweet maltiness, smooth dryness the whole way through. Long after-taste. Definitly hints of caramel.
