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."

McWorta (998) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Deep golden-amber colour with a medium sized off white frothy head. Some bread malt aromas up front supported by light fruity esters. Light tangy even crisp with a light slickness and a medium body. Malt sweetness up front which lets the fruity hop bitterness shine through. Medium lasting finish.

355cc bottle. Pours amber clear with thin head. Some floral and resin hops on a slightly sweet caramely backbone. Finish is quite dry and bitter for a lager. Very nice surprise. It is not the typical lager. Thirs quenching and refreshing. Pairs nicely with light meals.

LAGERS ARE HEAVY AND STRONG SO BE CARE FULL OR YOU’RE GET DRUNK REAL FAST’ I LEARNT MY LESSON BEFORE BROOKLYN’S. LAGERS ARE EVEN HEAVYER THEN PLINY (ITS THE BEST MY FAVRITE) BUT NIT HOPPY. ITS GOOD TO DRINK SOMETIMES HAS DIFFRENT TASTE LIKE FRUIT AND SPICES. MOST BREWERY’S DONT MAKE LAGERS BECAUSE THERE SO HEAVY.
