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."

dustindc (14) - Texas, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle pour into a Shaker. Deep Orange/Copper color one inch white head. Not much aroma to speak of for me. Nicely balanced a touch of hops flavor. I get a little yeasty, hay flavor. Straightforward beer easy to drink probably one the best examples of a lager. Nothing too exciting though. Would pair easily with food.
