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."

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2003 Amber with a creamy head. The first thing I notice is a very strong floral hop presence. While this is pleasant, it overwhelms other flavors. Still, this is a very tasty and original lager. A must try if you're in NYC.

rauchbier (3626) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Bottled. Deep Amber, moderate head and good condition. Initial flowery hop aromas followed by a malty toast and bread note. Pine resin, hops and citrus notes in the mouth with some caramel malt and a long hoppy finish that dries toward the end.

BillKismet (3356) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Orangish appearance and pouring a bizarre cylindrical cream head that forms a pint sized missile. Easy malt aroma with lightly malted body and flecks of bitterness. This vienna is delicately malted with a definite hop backbone. Okay for a vienna and a bit watery over the tongue.

Dunno, it’s just I like my lagers not to taste like ale. Full on the palate with a sweet aftertaste. Not an unpleasant beer at all, just not to my taste...

This beer poured onto the glass a medium to dark gold color. The head was of a full consistency and the color of white. The aroma was a balance of malts and hops. The taste was exactly like the aroma, bitter hops and sweet malts balancing each other. This is a decent example of the style of beer that it represents.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Bunny Roast through the prison bars. Barely dressed, some saliva smeared fur glistens in the moonlight. Soft moans amongst the tick-tick-tick of scurrying rats. The tea is served when all have gasped their way to conclusion. Bunny Roast slips out leaving a bitter memory. But let's be honest, dry hopping a below standard Vienna makes it interesting rather than good. If only the base lager had more character then this would be one beast of a brew. [1.9] Bottle Head to Head with Sam Adams Boston Lager. Malt tones with a sour fruit note. Cardboard and old beer. Tastes a bit fresher than the Boston, allowing some flavours to come through: orange; honeysuckle. Interesting.

nothing special, had it a few times now. I agree that it is very good beer to keep on tap and does seem almost like a pale ale.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Subtle malty aroma emanates from this deep copper colored brew. The body is mellow and moderately bitter with just a hint of sweetness. It finishes crisp with a nice balance of malt and hops.

Crit (3369) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2002
Amber with lasting off white head. Med hop nose and taste.Long hop finish. Small bead, good lace. Hopped like Pale not Lager

Yeah, I agree with the others. Quite a bit like a pale ale. Extremely full bodied and complex. So nice on tap.
