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."

Minimal aroma but great refreshing taste. The hops burst forth in your mouth, and give you that natural "bite" flavor which is appropriate for this style of beer. I wish this beer was more true to the pre-prohibition style and have some maize in it.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2006
Tall, creamy, off-white head rests on a clear caramel to amber hued beer. Rich bready, malty notes are immediately apparent alongside crisp floral hop aromas. Elements of cookies, dates, toffee, and pecans all come into play. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. The finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very clean with a nice drying floral hop finish. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation. Crisp and clean. Itís nice to have such a pleasant Vienna readily available and makes a creat íconversioní beer as well.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2006
Clearish honey color. Smells like crisp apples. Fruity undertones. Good foamy head. Nothing special really, but good to drink if you donít want to think about the beer you are drinking. It had an apple Jolly Rancher taste with no apple flavor if that makes any kind of sense at all.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2006
12 ounce bottle and poured into a pint glass. It is a light brown colored beer and very clear with lots of bubbles, very inviting. It formed a small head when poured into the glass that becomes a constant layer of foam. Spotted lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is a light molasses. The taste is the same on the front end, but it finishes with a nice hop bite. The is a very refreshing brew and I could sit around and drink a bunch of them.

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 Loganís 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. Iím not impressed. 5-3-5-2-9 (2.4).

this is a pretty good brew. Iíd expect nothing less from Brooklyn. Real nice appearance and aroma. malty and slightly bitter with a dry finish. Got it in a variety pack - canít wait for the next bottle
