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."

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2007
can from Greens in ATL. Honey aroma, with some citrus notes. Dark gold/orange color with a thin but steadt white head. Malty but still has a good hop presence, especially for a lager. At first I thought it was going to be so malty that it feels heavy? But then there is a sharp crisp flavor, either from the lager or the hops or both. Complex but still greatly refreshing, easy to drink in the Florida heat, if only we could get it down here!

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Dark, hazy golden-orange color. Thick, foamy, sticky off-white head. Sweet citrusy, grapefruit, caramel aroma. Flavors were nicely balanced between sweet malts, citrusy/grapefruity hops, caramel, and brown sugar. Soft, sticky mouthfeel that finishes very dry. Really good, well balanced, complex and interesting stuff.

Quite simply one of the most pleasurable beers to drink. Probably the hoppiest lager I’ve had in a while. I drink this all the time. One of the few beers that can mix great taste with a "i could drink 8 of these" drinkability

I had this on tap and I have a funny feeling it was either a bad keg or dirty lines as it had an odd odor and a very bizarre taste. I will have to try again!

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Golden color with foamy light-tan head. Has sweet (like honey) and hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced and finishes with a lingering bitterness. By far the hoppiest and most flavorful lager I’ve had.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Pours a light amber color with one finger head. Not much aroma here, a little malt and a little floral. Taste is spicy hops with some lemon. Finish is dry and bitter. Biterness does not make me want to take another sip. Not my idea of a sessionable beer. I would pick it over the macros but probably will not seek this one out again.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2007
[218-20060303] 355mL. Sweet citrus hops and lightly earthy aroma with hints of apple and lychee. Clear, light amber orange body with a small off-white head. Very grassy hops flavour with a bitter aftertaste, subtle apple lychee fruit. Medium body, fairly smooth. Nice hops, great blending.

PalCabral (143) - SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2007
A bit shy aroma. Great balance between hops and caramel in flavor. Smooth and tasy. Yummy. But is a Vienna?

theviolet (173) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Sweet fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. Very bitter taste. Lingering taste. Very smooth going down, enjoyable. Mildly acrid aftertaste.

theisti (3451) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Tap, at LGA’s NYSB. Pour is golden, though a deep golden. Aroma is citrus and a bit of hop. Taste is a fairly normal lager taste, nothing too special - though a bit more fruit - citrus than expected. Refreshing.
