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 amber. Great grassy fresh hoppy aroma -- from the dry hopping I suppose. Not much besides the hops though.

I had this one at Shea Stadium, in a plastic cup. It had a big white head over a dark gold brew. The head up and left sip lines on the plastic cup. Well balanced hops and malt, neither too strong but had a full-bodied effect. A pleasant beer. It went down easy.

Pours dark amber with little head. Aroma is very hoppy, though yet it has a spicy quality to it. This expands to the taste, where spices and a flowery feeling add to the hoppy bitterness...

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2006
A nice clean light brown beer. A rich full bitter flavor. Very flowery aroma and a little bit of that passed on to the taste.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Very nice lager, sweet maltiness, smooth dryness the whole way through. Long after-taste. Definitly hints of caramel.

MonsterMash (58) - North Tonowanda, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2006
A very nicely balanced beer. Some flowery hops with a nice tasting malt. Doesn’t do anything fantastically well and too expensive for what it is though.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Draft version. Pours a clear amber color with a rather thick white head. Great lacing. Interesting sweet malty aroma hints at pre-spice applesauce and and fresh baguettes. Flavor is dominated by an appley malt presence with just a faint hing of bittering hops at the finish to hold everything down. This is the kind of lager that a lager hater could enjoy.

Pours a nice amber color. Nice sweet malt nose with a hint of hops. Taste is caramel, with mild hops and a touch of fruit.

Furseth (2080) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2006
Tested 29/1-06. Bottle: Light brown clear, Aroma of hops and malt sweetnes. Lots of bitter/aromatic hops, long nice bitternes in the finish. I will say this is a lager who tasted like an Ale. Werry good indeed!

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Found this in Kyoto. Pours deep orage gold with a big white head, disipating quickly but decent lacing. Nose of grassy hops and a sweet herb/mint and flowers. Somewhat soapy flavour, good balance of hops and earth and tangerine malts. Tart and some cream. Sort of Odd. Bottle is only a month old but may have not travelled well. Sitting under those bright lights might have added some stale bread flavours.
