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."

Brownish color with a head that was gone pretty quickly and was virtually nonexistant. Malty aroma with a bite of a hoppy in the flavor and the aftertaste. Pretty good, but not amazing.

Dark color with off white head. Aroma of honey and hops. This was quite possible the best lager I have had, and i am not a huge fan of the style, try this one.

scotty (1031) - SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Slightly hazy, deep gold in colour with a fine tight white head, that lasts. A big nose of malt initially, but a fantastic fruitiness from the hops comes creeping in.Quite a complex flavour with malt well balanced by a delicious citrus note from the hops. Have liked this for years, unfortunately not always available around here. A fine brew that has not diminished in character over the years, a treat!!!

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Fridge Temp. Aroma is toasted malt with coffee overtones. Creamy head diminishes. Amber in color. Cloyingly sweet to the point of unappetizing. Has a strong honeysuckle flavor dominating, reminds me of Bit O’Honey candy bar. Mouthfeel is light, watery with soft carbonation. Finishes as if you licked a spoon of honey.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle at On the Rocks. Nice yeasty aroma with a fine amber pour that was suprising for a lager. The taste was also impressive with hints of honey, oats, and hay. Nice smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Needs a slight addition of malts but overall this was a great choice for the price.

An easy drinking lager from a great brewery. Nice light brown color with a lasting head. This would be a great beer for a summertime cookout.

flynnguy (14) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Strong Cascade aroma/flavor similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which I do not care for. Other than that it wasn’t bad.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle pours a fiery orange, translucent, small fizzly white head, soft carbonation, with fairly attractive carbonation.   Minor oat/barley like aroma, with hints of wheat bread.   Semi-sweet on the tongue, malty, slightly bready, and a bit oily.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a bit more of a soft hop background.   Not bad, but wishing it was a bit maltier.   Thanks goes out to radiomgb for the trade!

Had on tap at Park Slope indie-rock venue, later found six-pack in local supermarket. Being from Brooklyn I felt I had to try this beer, and I wasn’t dissapointed. Tap has slightly better aroma than bottled, both had a translucent amber appearance, and a better flavor than I expected though again tap wins over bottled. Finish was ok, may have lasted a little longer than desired but overall this is a good choice.
