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."

Better than an average beer, but thin and a little watery, hoppy for the lager style of beer. Not a bad beer, but not great.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2007
Better than most standard lagers. Typical malty flavor, but very hoppy for a lager. A bit on the thin and watery side. A boring beer, but easily drinkable.

aaahhhh the beer of my homeland! tucked away in the craziness of my beloved nyc -the center of the earth- is one of the best lagers in the world. taste of beer, hops, a layered effect of flowery sweet clean and genuine flavors. not too sweet! a touch of bitter just to open up your imagination. "yeah cousins" you are back in new york now! genuine body because thatís how itís brewed.

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. Iím not much of a lager guy to begin with, so i suppose i already came into this expecting not to like it that much. However, the taste is there. Not too much else to say about it.

355ml bottle. Pours a light copper colour with a small off white head that deminishes quickly. Sweet aroma with notes of malt, hops and caramel. Taste is slightly less sweet than the aroma with a nice bitter finish. very smooth with good carbonation. a top notch lager.

On tap at the brewery. Golden color, small white head. Very nice for a lager. Hoppy flavor, slightly malty, very drinkable. Another good Brooklyn effort.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a light copper color with thick white head. Sweet smell. Taste was just slightly sweet malts, caramel, and a tad of bitter hops on the finish. Clean and refreshing. A great solid summer brew.

Clear orange gold with an off white head. Nice american hops in the nose. Easy metal & thin body. Slight malty & bitter hops The hops shines through and is very nice. OK

DrnkMcDermott (2912) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 12 oz. bottle, best before 7/07. Time to start auditioning summer beers, I think, and Brooklynís just showing up at Samís Wines. Brassy color under a think eggshell head, very clear, light bubbles. Hoppy notes in the headspace come out when opened; in the glass it mingles with light but firm Vienna malts. Taste continues those Vienna malts with a matching hop profile, a little mellower than the usual Saaz. More spicy than flowery, but "flowery" is a difficult hop characteristic to preserve in a bottle. A fine American lager indeed.
