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."

Reminds me of a Northern German Pils Style. Pronounced bitterness, round body, golden amber colour with a white head. Malty noise with some fruitiness in the background.

cmacklin (711) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2016
On tap. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a large, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, fruity hops and bread. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, citrus and bread with a dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Very good for the style.

Salmaneser (100) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2016
33 cl bottle @ home. Orange beer, minimal beige head. Aroma starts fresh with some citrus, then dominated by malty bread and caramel tones. Taste is fresh and sweet, with a mild bitter finish. Nice beer, could do with a bit more body.

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