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."

Salmaneser (103) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2016
33 cl bottle @ home. Orange beer, minimal beige head. Aroma starts fresh with some citrus, then dominated by malty bread and caramel tones. Taste is fresh and sweet, with a mild bitter finish. Nice beer, could do with a bit more body.

Sarà ormai diventata di moda e commerciale ma trovo che rimane una delle migliori birre da supermercato.

Gehbe (118) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Golden colour, nice head and laces, clear. Aroma: hoppy fruits/zest/spice balanced with bread/malt. Taste: hoppy bitterness slightly upfront, some maltiness. Palate: medium-dry, high carbonation, no excess alcohol. Overall a very palatable hop centric lager.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - MAY 19, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) aus einer Kaiser’s-Filiale, Berlin. - Kupferbraun, klar. - In der Nase sehr angenehme Hopfenaromen: Harz, Erde, dazu Karamel. - Antrunk mild karamelmalzig mit schön hintergründigen herbfruchtigen, harzig-erdigen Hopfenaromen. Durchschnittlich rezent, schlank. Schön trockener Abgang mit milder aber aromatischer, leicht holziger Herbe. - Für ein Lagerbier außerordentlich aromatisch (wenngleich gar nicht sehr stark) gehopft, dabei leicht zu trinken; spritzig und enorm erfrischend. Klasse!

invinoveritas (108) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle at bar. Sharp but inviting aroma. Hoppy, crisp, and refreshing while avoiding a watery palate, but perhaps a little one-dimensional.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
