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."

Nice and drinkable. Would have been better, but just a bit too much on the floral taste to suit me.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 Re-rate based on can sent by Ty5592. Hazy coppery body, thick, puffy off-white head. Toasty nose with sharp herbal hops. Bitter, bready body, with sharp herbal, spicy hops complementing toasty, sweet malts. Long, bitter, somewhat metallic finish. Certainly much better this time around than my first sample on tap.

On tap at Logan’s Alley, Grand Rapids. Blonde-golden body, thin off-white head. The aroma and body were biscuity, toasty, and cerealy, with abundant buttered breads (diacetyl notes) and an earthy hops finish. This was relatively fresh beer but seemed rather stale and bland. I’m not impressed. 5-3-5-2-9 (2.4).

this is a pretty good brew. I’d expect nothing less from Brooklyn. Real nice appearance and aroma. malty and slightly bitter with a dry finish. Got it in a variety pack - can’t wait for the next bottle

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Clear copper brew. Frothy head that lingers. Nose is mostly green hops and lots of em. Unmistakably dryhopped. Very chunky bitterness in the nose. Malt are absent. Carbonation is very apparent. Flavors are interesting for a vienna. Not hardly any malt sweetness mostly hoppy green goodness.As the beer warms more sweetness shines through. Very honey-ish with a bitter hop edge. As per style...I don’t know. As per beer....pretty decent

Bottle – Floral (from hop), malty nose; A bit thin but very fine bitter body; Quite bitter finish with a little hop to it. Ordinary, but pleasant beer.

What a great lager. Well malted with a wonderful hoppy snap. A nice, long slightly sweet finish.
