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."

I sampled one bottle that I received in a trade with j_b for a IPA that I despised. There was some head that disapated quickly. The hops was most noticeable right off, but thabkfully not in the clean aftertaste. I’ll prefer Yuengling to this product.

Enjoyed this in a 20 oz "Brewtus" at the local Applebee’s after discovering they had it on tap. I really enjoyed this, tasty and easy to drink.

Somewhat reminicent of a Sam Adams Boston Lager. Nice reddish-amber color and great hop/malt balance. The caramel maltiness is balanced out nicely by the citric/fruity hoppiness. Dangerously easy to drink. A well made "pre-prohibition" lager.

Thanks to the chick for bringing this back from NY for me.....very thoughtful. Golden-amber in color. Fresh bready malt aroma with some hops. Flavor was very crisp, fresh, hoppy and cull....nice subtle yeastiness throughout. A very good session beer.

Draught at Dojo, New York.
A clear dark orange beer with almost no head. Full and sweet malty aroma with toffee tones. Very flavorfull for a lager. Malty and hoppy with notes of Brooklyn yeast and flowers. Nutty finish. A beer I could drink all night long....!

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Tastes homemade to me - definitely made with the traditional 4 ingredients. Nice amber color, started a little foamy but settled, with good proper residual head. Excellent aroma, hops and flowers, nice sweet malt taste with perfect hops balance, no aftertaste (clean finish). Loved it! (ps this doesn’t taste like a Vienna, more of a pale ale)

This lager has a cloudy golden to amber appearance with mild floral aroma, small white head, moderate hops are present with a strong grapefruit flavor in the taste. Smooth going down with a carbonation bite at the end. Nice Lager, I enjoyed it better than the pilsner.

(on bottle) I think it´s the best vienna I´ve had so far, the again; Negra Modelo is a vienna. This has all the stuff for a good thirstkiller. Both the sweetness of the malts and the freshness of the hops to the nose. A sweet/sour mouth, a tad too foamy. And a round, bitter finish. I´ts on my list in the bar, but not my favorite style.
