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."

Cimbasso (194) - - NOV 2, 2014
An amber coloured beer with a slightly off-white head. The aroma is of biscuity malts and fruity hops. The taste has a biscuit-like sweetness, which is offset by notes of lime and mild grapefruit. Also hints of pine resin and a very slight soapiness. Very dry finish. A good Vienna-style lager dominated by citrusy hop flavours.

curdy (7) - Lodge Park, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014 does not count
Slight hoppy aroma. Nice dark golden colour. Slight bitter flavour. Maybe Iíve been spoilt by all of the super flavoursome American IPAs and craft stouts that Iíve been drinking lately.....but this just doesnít cut it for me. Even this lovingly made Brooklyn Lager cannot convince me that lagers are worth going anywhere near. Why would I drink this when I can drink a super hoppy IPA or sweet malty stout/porter? Sorry lager, itís not you, itís me lol.

This lager poured a medium amber colour with an off white, frothy head. A little lacing. Scents include lite spruce hops, cereal, dough and citrus. First sip was smooth with medium carbonation and a nice malt flavour. Other flavours of lemon citrus, bread and cereal. Light hop flavour with citrus lingering on the palette.
