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."

Had on tap at the London Bridge in Jax. Poured a nice copper-orange color displaying a durable, rocky 1’2" white head. Some spotty lacing as glass drained. Aromas were admirably balanced between the surprisingly upfront hops notes and the caramel malts. Plenty of citrus and floral hop aromas combined with toffee, biscuit and caramel. Mouthfeel was moderately full, fluffy and very smooth with a refreshing amount of carbonation. Taste profile was quite APA like with plenty of citrusy/floral/spicy hops coming to the forefront, but it still maintained the clean delicateness of a lager. Finish brings in the malty, caramel candy, toffee sweetness. Easy drinking and would be a superb everyday lager to enjoy regularly.

Smells strongly of pleasant citrus hops. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Taste is refreshingly citrusy with a nice light feel to it. Tastes like a lagered pale ale. Fantastic.

Bottle. Large, lasting head with excellent lacing. Flowery hop aroma. Smooth & light on the palate. Crisp, mild hop bite with a hint of malt on the backend. A very good session beer!

Smells a great mix of fresh cascade (?) hops, bittering hops and caramel malt. An amber, almost orange brew with a very small head. Nicely sweet, well balanced, slightly creamy with a great fresh hop flavor. Finishes slightly bitter. Could drink these all day - i really like this beer.
