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."

JaKeAFC (452) - ITALY - MAR 8, 2014
35 cl bottle. Pours a nice amber color, with a thick, smooth white head, slightly hazed. Nose is hoppy and malty. Aroma has a simple but effective grainy malts backbone with plenty of hops, citrus peel and hints of caramel. Taste is bitter, crisp. Texture is watery, carbonated, medium bodied. Dry bitter finish, citric. Very clean.

Ótima lager, diferente do padrão do estilo bem lapada... Lúpulo lembra pinheiro pouco adocicado final seco longo bela breja pelo preço

bdunhill (239) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2014
One of the best and most full bodied lagers that you will ever have. With a hoppy aroma and a dark brown appearance, this Lager tastes more like an ale than most ales. Enjoy!

Uma cerveja Lager acima da média, com certeza. Coloração alaranjada. Gosto de cereal é predominante.

jbrana (352) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Very bready with some dank hop flavors and a sweet pale malt body. Kind of plain, but not necessarily in a bad way.

Pint on tap. I have too many ratings to get to this famous beer just now! It’s a nice copper color, clear, with almost no head and decent lacing. A nice relatively hoppy aroma for the style, different than other "viennas". Pretty well-balanced and plenty of flavor - you can’t really ask for too much more out of this style of beer, it’s earned its awesome reviews! Get one, rook!

Bottle from Coop - Amber color, good creamy white head, beautiful lacing - Aroma is malty, caramel, flowery hops - Flavor is malty and hoppy - Light body, medium bitterness, crisp and dry, dry bitter finish - not well balanced too bitter but a better lager than Swiss

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, fruchtig herb, leicht würzig. Geschmack röstmalzig süß, leicht fruchtig bitter.

Great solid lager. Amongst the ’hoppier’ lagers this is a personal favourite.
