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."

I really liked this beer - a lot more taste than what’s going around in New York and definitely one of my favorites that can be easily found in this city.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Beautiful amber color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, caramel. Reasonable body structure, featuring a quite strong caramel character supported by a strong (and quite aromatic) bitterness, and some fruitness (apricots).

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2004
Light brownish head, to a red/brown body. The appearance makes me wanna drink this beer! The taste is quite sweet and with a little flowery touch.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Orange/yellow gold coloring. Minimal head. Aroma is sweet floral. Medium hops on the tongue to start. Then smooth and some burn at the end. Body is mild, with some hops at the beginning and end and some minor sweetness in the aftertaste. It starts strong and then weakens a bit and the nose seems more complex than the taste.

Also on draft at Silk City. Good looking pour ( i poured it myself), but really a drikable and forgettable pint. BTDT.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2004
A very good lager, with almost a pale ale quality to it. Nice hop nose, with a good solid malt taste, this is how every lager should turn out.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 24, 2004
Cascade nose, medium amber body, small white head. Cascades in a lager? That's different. This doesn't really work for me.

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Bottled sometime in 8-03(best before 2-04)As far as lagers go this is pretty intense.Aroma of so so juicy cascades(dark peachy aroma when warm_ and some grainy malts(In typical NY brew fasion).Almost amber/gold,OK head/good lace.For being 6 months+ old the hops really held well(is this pasturized?)More like an amber ale/APA than a lager.Hops and grain on the palate(thank God for hops).These are going for .69$.Decent.Eczematic's rating kinda nailed it though(commercial desciption dead on).
