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."

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Very nice color and lingering head. Aroma is nice with maltiness. Taste is very good but with some coppery metallic aftertaste on the back of the tongue. Very nice hoppy finish.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured slightly hazy amber-gold, not much head. Pleasant amount of hops, fair amount of mildly oaky sweet light roast malt. Taste is more hoppy than malty, where the aroma was on the sweet side, the flavour is more bitter. Decent linger, average body for the type, almost astringent mouthfeel, gets a little "dishwatery" by the end of the bottle. Definitely not a pale lager, this is the bitterest "Vienna" I’ve had - and very good at that, although the finish doesn’t hold up too well.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 IT was another Lager in the festival, but it was not discusting as most macro lagers, I liked it so far, but it was mor elike a light Pilsener. Like El Salvador’s.

TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2005
This is one of my favorite lagers I have ever had. It has a nice color with a decent head. The aroma has a lot of hops. The flavor is strong and lasting into the very nice bitter aftertaste. This is a great beer to go all night with. And it goes very well with my favorite scotch, THE GLENLIVETT.

Bottled. Amber colour with a decent sized white head. Floral hop aroma. Nice malty taste with some hops and caramel. Long bitter finish. Nice fullish mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Jax Beer and Wine, Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a slight off-white head. Aroma has a perfumey, sweet essence to it with some floral accents to it and a citrusy back end. Flavor has some sweet caramel notes, hints of ripening vegetables, and a hint of mosquito repellant. Mouthfeel is decently thick for a lager and it finishes strong. Surprised and impressed.

anders37 (16582) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2005
Amber in colour with a nice big white head. Disappears quickly though. Has a little fruity and hoppy aroma. Malty and a little sweet taste with the bitter hops coming in the end leaving a nice mouthfeel.

imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, Wetherspoons World of Beer Promo. Deep amber colour, white head, not over carbonated. Surprisingly decent beer, heady fragrant hops with a good chunky dry malt body. Long finishing late hops, a very enjoyable beer.

This was a good solid lager. It was pretty hoppy and sweet and had a good smooth taste. Was hoping for a little thicker taste though.
