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."

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 This beer tastes a lot like Samuel Adams Boston Lager to me. But, to me that is not a bad thing.+++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a beautiful red-brown color with a small foamy tan head. There aroma was sweet, malty, with a definite presence of herbal hops. Strong hoppy flavor with some malt and sweetness. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

I drinkit all the time and never review it. So why not today? I picked up a six pack at Wegmans. This is a great lager. Not like what the macro breweries have done to the name. It has a really nice foral scent with a nice smooth malty and hoppy taste. Brooklyn has made one of the best lagers outside of Germany.

Copper and amber body with a thin, white head. Crisp hop aroma with nice malt undertones of caramel and freshly baked bread. The light to moderate body is refreshing an finishes cleanly. A nice interplay in the mouth of hefty malt and piney hops. Another well-crafted lager from the East Coast.

Blimey, a bit dark for a lager was my first thought until I came to enter the rate and discovered it is classed as a Vienna (my only previous Vienna being the "Mongolian Baadog). Any way, an intriguing ginger/gold colour, with a reddish tints. The aroma has dry bready malt with something a little sharp in the background. Much the same in the mouth, with orangey nuances. Sweet and sour finish. Not bad. Certainly better than your average lager. 355ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk

pours out redish in color, fruity tasting aroma. thin non existant head, a little too sweet for my liking- but a good beer in general.

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Midlands. Smells like an Amber Ale - bright malt and sweet orange chocolate. Orange colour, with an attractive white, fudge head, which leaves rugged lacing. Fresh and fruity to start off with, malty on the finish with plenty of oily orange throughout. Smooth, refreshing and with some tingle - superb.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2004
This is a decent American Pre-Pro. Crisp and refreshing with more body and flavor than any current U.S. Marcos, and many imports as well. Refreshingly bitter.

Nice floral bouquet pretty golden appearance and fluffy head. Good taste but a bitter finish. Looked prettier than it tasted but overall a good showing.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Bottled. Brown coloured lager with a berry fruit aroma. Very full, malty flavour but the aftertaste is a bit too sweet for my liking. Not particularly refreshing but drinkable none the less Score 2.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 3.3 and 3.2. Average becomes 3.2

on tap: this was is the brooklyn brewerys flagship beer, and was the most readily available for a while. now there are several others all over. i kinda got hooked on this when visiting nyc for lack of better beers to drink in a local bar. nice and hoppy like a pacific northwest pale ale, not as much flowery nose as you would think, more grassy. i always look for this one and you should too.
