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."

Golden-amber with ok head. Hoppy-citrus aroma. Caramel-nutty and bitter flavour. Nice palate.

08.25.04 12oz bottle. Reddish amber pour with fine head. Some flowery aromas are surprising along with a more comfortable biscuity and lemongrass nose. Flavors are subdued, flitting atop a slightly sweet cardboardy front and a floral perfume that lingers in the throat and nose. Not at all what I expected, not totally swell. Better choice at this particualr bar than duds like Stella, Newcastle, Smithwicks, etc.

Pours amber in color, has nice hoppy smell to it. Very nice hoppy bite in taste and goes down smooth. Overall good for its style.

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.
