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."

Light brown/amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Malty flavor that has a nice balance of hops.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Bottled: OK but a little thin. Mild hops with a faint malt follow. I’ll have to try it again - maybe I got a bad one.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Basically I found this one to be citrussy hops on bland malt. Clear orange with a white lasting head. Hoppy aroma and flavor, and what seams to be Cascades???. It is smooth and clean, but not really my thing.

This is a fantastic beer. Brooklyn’s best, and that’s saying something. Quite possibly the best lager brewed in the United States

35.5 cl bottle. Served in DBF 2004 sample glass. Dark gold. OK head. Fresh, hoppy aroma. The taste is dry and hoppy with a slight fruitiness. Easy to drink.

You know what, For a lager, this is a pretty decent beer. I had this after waiting over 20 minutes at a local pub to get the barmaids attention. Though nothing would be worth that wait, it was a pleasant surprise. Great way to spend the last day of summer classes. No sleep til....BROOKLYN.

DocLock (8312) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2004
This one was excellent! Pours dark straw with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of malt, corn flakes, hops, and slight fruit and honey. The tastes hits the papillae with layers of malt, fruit, honey, and a slightly dry, earthy finish. This is a rock solid lager. If Bluebeard had this stuff at sea, he might not have killed so many hookers.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Amber colored with little head and a hoppy aroma. Not a bad flavor for a lager, the hops are there, as well. A decent beer for the style.

presario (4789) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 Third attempt at rating. First one I was out to lunch. Second improved after a pint at the map room. Read "Beer School" and had to re-visit. Lasting fair head with a bit of lacing. Dark amber. Don’t get a lot of aroma but this is a nice aggressive hopped beer. Tasty dark caramel malt with a peppery finish and after taste.

Amber coloured. Rather hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavour. Dry finish. Fruity and flowery notes.
