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."

Light copper in color with a creamy off white head that laces well and lasts long. It’s suprisingly hoppy with a well pronounced herbal, fresh and flowery aroma. The hoppiness is present in the aroma and very pleasant. Is this dry hopped? Very grainy flavor with toffee and caramel notes. This is an all-malt lager which is great. Anyone trying to get into craft brewed beer would like this. Good solid bland lager.

A lighter amber color gives the idea that something isn’t going to be the same with this beer in the realm of lagers. Tasting it reinforces that thought. The flavor is lighter and more ’flowery’ than most lagers. I must say an interesting beer none the least.

Amber color with a medium thick head. Malty nose...a little hoppyness. Nice sweet, malt taste...goes down real easy and the malt sticks with you. Props to Sancho for sending me this gem.

I found this beer to have an excellent flavor. Very malty and sweet, with a very slight hoppy finish, but not a lot. The malt really carries this beer. I am a big fan of sweet malt beers, I ilke to call this a dessert beer. I’d definitely drink it again.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Amber color with decent sized head when poured into a pint glass. Aroma of malt, hops and citrus. The taste is flat with a thin body & mouthfeel. Bland and malty. Tastes of caramel.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2006 This was my first staple beer. Great stuff. I will have to try it again before I go singing its praises, but I remember a great lager to be enjoyed anytime.

RERATE: Amber color with a white film for a head. Nice doughy aroma that is very attractive. Nice flavor and body. A very pleasent all around session.

Draught. Amber colored, clear, with white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is quite good. I like the haoppiness at the end, and there is a decent malt balance.

A very good lager that I enjoyed in the best bar in the world (brickskellar Washington DC). I had heard many good things about this brewry so I had to check this lager out. It has very good flavor in the malt. A nice bit of hoppiness and it drank very smooth

Unless its from Germany I usually steer clear of that four letter word.....LAGER. This was honestly the first Vienna I’ve had. Poured out a golden color with a big white head. Had a typical lager aroma with some notes of sweet malts like carmel. Right off the bat I was impressed by this lager. It had a nice taste with more complexity than expected with some notes of carmel and a slightly bitter finish. Not a bad brew at all

Deep golden color with a white head. The taste is a full malty pattern with a balanced slight dry bitterness on the palate.
