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."

Lager di ottimo stampo leggera di poco corpo ma un buon equilibrio e molto profumata, una punta di miele si unisce ai sentori floreali. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

wvhoran (161) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at The Winston, Hobart. Pours amber with a copper hue. A decent caramel aroma with light hoppy notes. Taste is caramel, light malt, bread, light hoppy. Smooth and balanced, very drinkable, an accomplished lager.

This is one of those beers one forgets to rate. Been drinking it for years. It’s a classic. Used to compare it with my town’s local beer ( E. C. Dahls). But through the years the Brooklyn lager has held its own. While my local beer hasn’t. weak aroma. Light malt. Little bit citrus. Feel i taste a bit cola. Good bubbles.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - MAY 25, 2014
Clear amber/copper. Decent head and lace. Nose full of malt,caramel and some toasty notes. Medium bodied, some crystal malt on the palate with some caramel like toasty edges,with decent floral hop bite. Hightly drinkable and clean.
