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."

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Bottle into lager glass. Golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of malt sweetness, some caramel, light fruity hop and floral notes. Taste is the aroma adding grainy and nut notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, fragrant, mild bitterness, malty with a nice dry finish. I’m surprised by this; flavorful, balanced and a lager. I can see myself buying more of this for warm summer days.

LAGERS ARE HEAVY AND STRONG SO BE CARE FULL OR YOU’RE GET DRUNK REAL FAST’ I LEARNT MY LESSON BEFORE BROOKLYN’S. LAGERS ARE EVEN HEAVYER THEN PLINY (ITS THE BEST MY FAVRITE) BUT NIT HOPPY. ITS GOOD TO DRINK SOMETIMES HAS DIFFRENT TASTE LIKE FRUIT AND SPICES. MOST BREWERY’S DONT MAKE LAGERS BECAUSE THERE SO HEAVY.

Pours an average frothybwhitebhrad that slowly but almost completely diminishes. Body is clear sparkling yellow. Aroma contains light malts (light bread, cereal), light hops (flowers, lemon, orange), light yeasts (dough) and banana, grape, apple and some forest fruits. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic, light swet and light bitter and finishing with light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A good lager with more flavor then many others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured a cleaer golden yellow with little head. Aroma was lager yeast, floral, and citrus. Flavor was typical lager yeast, but also had a bit of fruit in it with grapefruit and lemon. Nice little addition there. Light body and thin texture. Carbonation was average and smooth to finish. Nothing stands out, but easy-drinking if you love lagers.
