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."

Bottle - thanks to slob. Wow, this is a lager? Pours nice amber with a small white head that diminishes mostly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is more pale ale-ish, sweet maltiness and plentiful hops. Flavor is rich and full, lots of toasty, slightly fruity malts and bouquet of tart, citrus and herby hops. Light to medium body and gentle, creamy carbonation. Very nice beer!

Golden colour with a little white head. Fine aroma of malt, hops and aromahops. Good malty taste with lots of hops. A very good lager.

On Tummits tap At Summitt’s Wayside Taven during the Brooklyn Brewing Tasting...Nice full body for a Lager...Plenty of caramel malts to this one...Lcking a bit in some hop characters but maybe not for the style...Definite session brew

Pours a beautiful sparkling amber with a small, but lasting head. Nice malty floral aroma. Taste has notes of caramel, toasty malts, toffee, floral hops and some citrus qualities. Has the perfect amount of sweetness with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Great malty body - full and creamy on the palate with lively carbonation. Great lingering sweetness. Good head retention. I’m impressed.

From Eyedrinkale. Thanks. Fantastic hoppy lager with muted malt notes. Very quenching and light without being watery. Really beefed up version of a lager, but still has the "light" elements of palate and body. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 Bottle 355ml (6 pack)
Appearance: Amber (with slight haze ?), on top impressive solid creamy head .
Nose :Refreshing , sweet caramel blended with good dose of wet leaf hops , bitter fruity ending.7+
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied. Plenty of bread rye like malt , traditional , fulfilling. Hops show up just I time but they play more subtle note than aromas. Despite softening effect of juicy malt hops managed to make fairly crisp, semi dry brew. Versatile lager that id great for every occasion. (f-8)

I had just read an interview with Garrett Oliver, and I just thad to try this brew. Frankly it devilvered all expectation. I was a bit doubtful at first because of a bad previous experience with a (Maroccan) Vienna, but this was definitly different: Low off-white long-lasting head, gold brown colour, and a hint of honey in the very filling taste. A bit of fruit, too, making the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 2004 draught at the Burren. Awesome color, copper brown, with some light golds, slight hint of haziness and a small off-white head. Smells crisp, a mix of lager yeast, light toffee and plenty of fresh hops. Flavor is very full and hoppy, with warm hints of caramel, maybe even slight chocolate and some honey and almonds all wrapped up in to a drinkable, medium bodied lager with no thinning. I love the hops, they are perfectly balanced, always present but never dominant or astringent.

This is a decent lager, nothing special. I was expecting a little better. Relatively smooth with some overtones of malt and tangy flavors. It will do.
