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."

SinH4 (3081) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
Orange color with white head. Aroma is malty, earthy hops. Taste is malty, earthy-hoppy, but no caramel or other standard amber flavours. Refreshing, low carbonation. Admittedly good and well-balanced. Nice.

It’s a Lager by name. It tastes much more like an IPA to me. The bitterness is atypical in this style. I can see it’s popularity, but when I drink a Lager I expect it to be a little more rounded out.

Too light, too crisp, over carbonated. Never again. I will go back to Yuengling.
