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."

Vinx (60) - ITALY - JUL 25, 2014
Hoppy aroma, more than the usual lagers, surely dry-hopped. Some discreet citric and herbal notes remind me an IPA but in a more elegant way. Not explosively fruity as I expect from a lager. Noticeable balance between the aromas and tastes which makes you desire one more bottle. Drinkable without being watery, light bodied, classy, a real good one!

sudomorph (511) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
473ml can. Pours a hazy, light orange with a one finger, white head that leaves a coating of lace. Aroma has nice lager yeast notes along with traditional hops and some grain. Very slightly fruity. Taste is well balanced. Very much like the aroma. Slight bread and grain with a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and crisp in the mouth. Refreshing and drinkable. Overall a well balanced lager. Clean and crisp with some ok flavour.

makenzi (22) - SLOVENIA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle 033l @ home.; pours orange-copper with white creamy, good lecing and long lasting head. Aroma is pleasent sweety, toasted malt, bread, some biscuit and herbal - grassy hops. Taste is mostly like a smell, lots of malts and hops, with subtile bitterness at the and. Body is light to medium, lively carbonarion. Mouthfeel is smooth and feels more an Ale than Lager. It’s quite simple, easy drinking beer, however it’s full of flavour and aroma and it is not as sweet as many Bavarian Lagers.

Jur (258) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Clear hazelnut, fine white head. Round, caramel start, luckily handsomely dry-hopped for a bitter finish. Not one to drink a session of.

MrHult (183) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt vitt skum. Doftar vitt bröd, jäst och lite karamell. Maltig inte så besk smak. En god lättdrucken lager!

Poured from bottle. A distant scent of wetlands in smell. Very mild taste. After taste almost the same. Looks good though.

tricksta_p (904) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Grassy aroma of biscuity malts, faint caramel, bready, light hoppy. Flavour is malty with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not a fan of Lagers, but this one was just what I needed at the time.
