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."

kevinator (719) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
This was was much better the second time I tried this. The aromas were of mild hops with some grainy essence. The color was a dark golden color with a huge head. This is not a favorite style of mine because they tend to be low on excitement and flavor. This was one the best of its kind I’ve had. Crisp and light palate. Hoppier version that still had remnants that were true to style. Good beer to drink with most foods.

gildnerk (71) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep gold with very little white head. A very aromatic beer with strong notes of hops, citrus and caramel. The body is quite fine and not overcarbonated. A long-lasting bitter finish. Nice one.
