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."

koshack (1216) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Złote, klarowne. Piana kremowa, drobna, dość obfita. W aromacie intensywne nuty lagerowe, plus trochę zboża. W smaku goryczka, na początku dość ostra, potem przechodzi w łagodniejszą. Nie jest wysoka, ale wyraźna. Nie dominuje, znw wyczuwalne słody, plus lekka nuta kwiatowa. Niskie wysycenie. Jak na lagera bardzo udane.

Light, crisp and refreshing. Hoppy for a lager. Sweet bready aroma followed by a light bitterness. Theres something about this that makes me actually want to drink a lager. Most are usually middle of the road to pretty bad but this one is definitely solid. The hoppier take on it definitely is a plus.

Clear orange-ish color. Low to medium carbonation. Complex aroma. Nice fruitiness from the amber malts, bready. Bright American hops. A bit of potato? Fairly dry, with a good dose of light toast. Nice grassy, hoppiness in the finish. Refreshing. A very good lager.

This is what a lager should be; light fresh refreshing and crisp. So no to corn syrup, rice, diluted hop extract and the skunk provided from green bottles. Instead enjoy the presence of hops and the crisp fresh bitterness they provide, enjoy a malt backbone that somehow is light; full and which allows the hops to shine, all the same time. I am prone to hyperbole: but this could be the best lager Ive had. The perfect recommendation to someone new to crafy beers
