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."

This is such a great beer. Nice crisp, hoppy aroma. Head is a little lacking. Smooth refreshing taste. Finishes with a very clean, malty flavor. Love this beer.

Pours a nice clear amber with persistent white head. Some floating particles (yeast?) are visible. Herbal and floral aroma. Taste is malty and light bitter, with long bitter aftertaste. Very light body, easy drinking.

LeandroBibi (30) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2015
Dourada e brilhante com uma bela espuma. Aroma pouco intenso de cereais. Bem leve, com amargor marcante e prolongado. Ótimo drinkability!

Kolor zloty. Piana gesta. Nasycenie srednie, tj. takie jak ma byc. W zapachu slod i owoce, w smaku zas duzo chmielu.

2015-04-18 - This is a famous beer, and it tasted really nice. But it was not so special.

Not a lager in the European sense of the word which is what I was personally looking for. More a beer because it’s quite caramel and fruity, though not as heavy with caramel and fruit as other beers. You’d probably like this if you don’t like the strong flavours of beer. A surprising amount of fizz which I didn’t find pleasant. A little watery at times too, but it would probably referesh on a warm day.

브루클린 브루어리 라거 5.2% ABV 유명한 브루클린 라거. 달달하고 쌉쌀한것이 가볍게 들이켜기 참 좋은 맥주다. 누구와도 친할것 같은 똘똘하고 센스있는 넉살좋은 친구가 연상되는 맥주. 토요일밤 딱이네

christhoel (280) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
I bought this beer because I never had it before. I’ll buy it again, because it impressed me so much. For a lightish lager, you can’t go wrong with this.

On tap at Buffalo Bar, Brisbane. Beautifully rich amber colour with persistent head. Modest aroma with sharp flavour. However, this beer is a long way from home and my experience with vienna lagers is that they do not travel well. Hope to try in NYC some day to compare.
