3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden amber color and very clean and clear. Nice creamy white head that dissipated slowly. Ring, with wonderful lace that left the surface covered in a thin layer of foam the whole way down to the bottom. Clean bitter hop taste to start, fading into sweet fruity flavors - such as peach - then finishing with roasted malt flavors. Dry, clean finish. Nice medium body. Balanced. Pleasant carbonation that makes it refreshing. A very solid lager. Definitely not the best lager around, but my favorite so far - taking into consideration value and quality.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the botte at The Railway in Putney (London), golden amber with a large rocky head. quite a bit of carbonation. A fruity aroma of apples and peaches. Fruit again in the flavour - definitely peaches. The carbonations works well, a dryish aftertaste. I donít typically favour a lager, but this must be one of the best, I see why it is so highly rated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is a pleasent combination of fruit and malt undertones. It is a rich amber color with a frothy beige head. The head is fully lasting and the lacing is considerable. Initially there is a burst of hop flavor with a caramel malt taste coming through. The finish is dry a bitter.

i canít believe i havenít rated this and i picked this up in okinawa of all places / itís a decent brew; i like it / maple brown body, slightly hazy, tiny beads of bubbles stream upward, soft light tan head, little to no lacing; smooth, slightly prickly; slight pine and floral notes, toastiness, lime tartness with a slightly sweet and juicy aftertaste; not bad, not bad...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white coarse-laced head shrinks to a thin white ring. Hazy light brown body. Sweet, fruity, caramelly aroma with strong citrus hop profile. Malty, bitter taste, somewhat watery. Bitterness with fruity notes lingers. A very good, and quite untypical, dark lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brooklyn Lager pours to a beautiful deep golden color with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this is very nice with a good balance of grassy and citric hop aromas and crisp and biscuit like malt aroma. Brooklyn Lager is hopped with both Hallertau and Cascade hop varieties. The palate is firm with some good pale malt flavor, a touch of malt sweetness, and a clean and smooth body. Three malts go into this beer including 2 row pale, caramel, and carapils. Brooklyn Lager finishes with more crisp and biscuity malt flavor up front, then ends with a grassy, citric bitter hop bite, that balances this beer out very nicely.
This is a well done lager that is brewed from a pre-Prohibition lager recipe. Its not my favorite craft golden lager on the market, but this beer, like all Brooklyn products is rock solid.
