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."

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2007
6 pack bottles. Surprised how amber it was- thought it would be more a yellow shade. A small head remains for a long while, good lacing too. Starts sweet, ends with a lingering bitterness. More body / complexity than I was expecting- I enjoyed this beer.

Ok brooklyn. Brooklyn lager was one that got me into the finer side of beer. Fruity and toasty with hints of nuts but overall a simple thin taste that gets to you after cases and cases. Certainly not one of my first choices but when options run out, i rush to the lager.

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Bottled. A bit on the red side. Minor white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy. The flavour is distinct with a hoppyness. There is a sweet aftertaste as well.

Out of a keg. out of my growler. out of my pint glass. out of my bladder. ok, ok, I didn’t really try it out of my bladder. But this beer was so suprisingly exceptionaly good that I gave it serious consideration.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours amber/golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, fruit, and sweet malts. The flavor is sweet, floral, toasted malts, and a mild bitter finish.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours golden with a touch of red. Has a small, quickly dimmenishing head. Aroma is malt, slightly sweet, and grassy. Flavor is grass, malt, nd ratehr hoppy. Finishes bitter and sorta dry. It’s a good brew, maybe a little too much of the grass hops but nothing to fret over. I make sure to drink it when I visit Brooklyn.

swoopjones (6909) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2007
On tap @ Common Grounds NYC. Great lager, hop presnce, balanced well with the malts. I’ll drink this any day over any of the macros. A nice alternative

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2007
355 mL bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate head. Aroma is of sweet malt with a bit of grassy hops. Taste is moderately bitter, with a bit of an apricot sweetness. Bitterness makes for a clean finish with little aftertaste. Overall, described as a lager, but sure is tastier than any of the macros.

dunkelbitte (20) - New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2007
On tap, in a bottle, I think I’ve even had it in a can. It looks beautiful, a clear amber with minimal head. You can smell the hops very strongly. Speaking of hops, it’s a bit too hoppy for a lager.

A beefy, hoppy lager. If you’re going for lager, this one is it. More body, more aroma, and more hops than what you would expect. This one makes for a great barbecue or shrimp boil if you are into that sort of thing.
