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."

ABUSEDGOAT (2322) - California, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Pours an amber body with minimal head. Aroma is flowery and malty. For a lager the aroma is AMAZING. There was actual complexity. Flavor is malty and bitter with a dry finish, enjoyable but nothing to write home about. For a lager this was exceptional.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2005
A very mild an pleasant beer. The best thing about it is actually the aroma which is very malty and yet fresh. Excellent color as well.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours clear amber, almost an iced-tea orange with a thin white head. Floral hoppy aroma. Sweet blend of light tart bitterness with full malty hops. Full body with slight creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy finish that left me craving more. Overall a pleasant surprise and a good drinking beer.
