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."

Verry hoppy for a lager. Clear amber pour. Malty aroma. Drinkable, but wont be listed among my favorites.

Sarà ormai diventata di moda e commerciale ma trovo che rimane una delle migliori birre da supermercato.

Gehbe (11) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 23, 2016
Golden colour, nice head and laces, clear. Aroma: hoppy fruity balanced with bread/malt. Taste: hoppy bitterness slightly upfront, some maltiness. Palate: medium-dry, high carbonation, no excess alcohol. Overall a very palatable hop centric lager.

Moravius (1037) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) aus einer Kaiser’s-Filiale, Berlin. - Kupferbraun, klar. - In der Nase sehr angenehme Hopfenaromen: Harz, Erde, dazu Karamel. - Antrunk mild karamelmalzig mit schön hintergründigen herbfruchtigen, harzig-erdigen Hopfenaromen. Durchschnittlich rezent, schlank. Schön trockener Abgang mit milder aber aromatischer, leicht holziger Herbe. - Für ein Lagerbier außerordentlich aromatisch (wenngleich gar nicht sehr stark) gehopft, dabei leicht zu trinken; spritzig und enorm erfrischend. Klasse!

invinoveritas (58) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle at bar. Sharp but inviting aroma. Hoppy, crisp, and refreshing while avoiding a watery palate, but perhaps a little one-dimensional.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Samuel214 (345) - SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2016
Burk från SB. Klar bärnstensfärgad åt det lite mörkare hållet med högt blekgult skum som lämnar små rester på kanterna. En lätt och fräsch doft av citrus, lite kakdeg, citroncheesecake, eventuellt lite persika. Lätt kropp. Smakmässigt ungefär vad som förväntas. Lite blommig. Något fylligare än vanlig lager, även en lätt beska i avslutningen. Helt ok.

Well, it’s not bad, but after having my first lager in years yesterday (Ayinger dortmunder) and being super-excited about what I might be missing, this was a slight letdown. That stuff is fantastic btw. This pours a clear amber with almost-dissipated bone-white top that does cling a bit. Aroma is floral and slightly hoppy in a funky way, not what I’d expected. Flavor is better with more malt getting a grip - a nice biscuit - but still slightly overbalanced by the hop. Finish is on the semisweet which is okay by me.

lokis333 (300) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - APR 27, 2016
Clear deep honey/amber color with small slightly off white foam. Aromas initaly of light hops then malt in a way smelling like barley wine (smells like it would be strong beer?) although quite simple and resinous aromas but nice. Palate, medium body with mouthcoating texture leaving smooth maybe with hints of booze malty finish. Taste is sweet of malt with some hints of light malts being used, has somewhat stronger beer taste to it. Overall, not bad, interesting one thing that really threw me off it tasted like some beers of 7% and over that I had? There fore I am not sure and start to doubt my tastebuds.... But give it a go it is still nice! Although as geting through the bottle taste mellows out leaving afterteases of caramalt and biscuit malt.

markwise (5085) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle from The Epicurean Hotel. Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Nose is light malt, some floral character, some yeast, and some mild bitterness. Flavor is similar with malt, floral, some mild bitterness, and yeast. Light to medium in body and nice lager overall.
