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."

Boxereddy (442) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2016
Helder amberkleurig bier met witte snelzakkende schuimkraag. Mout en hop in de neus. Smaak is bitterder dan verwacht. Licht mondgevoel met droge afdronk en bitterige nasmaak.

Every medium except for from a can somehow. This is my favorite beer though, my go to, probably my most consumed and purchased over the time I’ve been drinking beer so far. Very attractive amber/dark gold body, creamy head, crisp and clean taste, good balance of caramel, roastiness, and floral hops. Much more colorful and flavorful and just all around way better tasting than most American lagers, especially the macros and standards. Fantastic.

Consistently competent. Brooklyn Lager is a mainstay for the fridge and rarely disappoints when you want a no fuss, honestly decent beer. Hopp y enough to be noticable without taking itself too seriously, Love the nutty malts and the slight citrus finish. Not a big hitter, but that’s why I like it. It’s basic and genuinely good for it.

eaglebones (104) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange with thin white head. Not much for aroma, only some floral and malty notes. Medium body and medium-high carb. Fruity and slightly sweet with crisp finish. Very enjoyable lager.

Not sure how I’ve never rated this. Tap at Project Parlor, Brooklyn. Pours amber with a big frothy head. Aroma is citrus, and nice sort of German malts. Flavor is similar, great balance between malts and hops actually despite that cliché. It’s good. Years ago, I loved this and then realized it wasn’t great but it’s a solid beer. As far as a staple goes, much less a lager, it’s good. I still dig it. It’s light, it’s very easy drinking.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
355ml Bottle from Tesco, Dragonville, Durham. Coppery amber with a rocky, diminishing, off-white head and lively carbonation. Gassy nose with light citrus fruits and that slightly caramel noble hop-style tinge. Really crisp, bitter taste with a solid, beefy maltiness that sets it apart from many other lagers. It’s not sweet, it’s not sickly and it strikes a good balanced of being refreshing and leaving the mouth wanting for more. Very light toffee, bread and citrus flavours. Lively on the palate. This is a rarity - A lager I will gladly go back to.

mariuspoenari (1214) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Clear amber pour with a short-lived white head. Smells malty, of caramel and mashed grains. The taste is more bitter than the nose suggested, but well within the amber ale style. A decent beer.
