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."

Pours amber in color, has nice hoppy smell to it. Very nice hoppy bite in taste and goes down smooth. Overall good for its style.

yespr (31495) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2007
35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep orange, clear, with a slight off-white head. Fruity hops aroma, slight caramel malt. Malty flavour, slight roasted with a minor bread like note. Fruity and bitter hops join in a bit later, given a rather dry flavour into the finish with a minor refreshing fruity note. Slight soapy mouthfeel/flavour.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2003
A deep red beer with a fine slightly orange head. Very lovely fruity aroma with sweet malt notes. The flavor lacks a little compared to the aroma - a little watery to start off, but then a sweet nice bitterness hits the back of the tongue and lingers for a long time. A very nice lager.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Quite dark - and very pretty - amber colour, limited head. The top quality aroma hops are revealed already in the nose and certainly when the first drops hit the tastebuds. Nice bitternes, but first and foremost aroma, with a fine malty body. A fine example of an excellent microbrewed American Lager.

Golden colour with a little white head. Fine aroma of malt, hops and aromahops. Good malty taste with lots of hops. A very good lager.

omhper (19698) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2007
Bottled. Clearamber, small head, Distinct crystal malt aroma with some canteloupe-like hops. Fairly sweet with the expectedly clean, hard mouthfeel goes well with the flowery aromtic hops. Light-medium bodied, medium bitternes. Enjoyable

anders37 (16948) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2005
Amber in colour with a nice big white head. Disappears quickly though. Has a little fruity and hoppy aroma. Malty and a little sweet taste with the bitter hops coming in the end leaving a nice mouthfeel.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Amber lagerish beer. Full bodied. Lingering bitter aftertaste - hard work. Average.

29th May 2011
Clear amber beer, small off white head. Crisp palate, dry. Minerals. Creamy rich pale malt, lagerish of course! Decent mild hops,=. Dry finish with a bitterish aftertaste. Decent lager after all!

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Beautiful amber color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, caramel. Reasonable body structure, featuring a quite strong caramel character supported by a strong (and quite aromatic) bitterness, and some fruitness (apricots).
