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."

NOT BAD, SOMEWHAT FRUITY LAGER, WITH A VERY FRESH AFTERTASTE. FOR SOME REASON , I WOULDNT WANT TO DRINK MORE THAN 6 OF ’EM, BUT A WORTHY BEER NONE THE LESS.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2007
12oz. bottle - pours orangey golden amber with a big, foamy white head. Leaves excellent lacing down the glass. Aroma is shocking for a lager, especially in this bland Ontario market - it’s fresh and floral hops all the way, with a nice bready malt character in the background. The flavour has a much bigger malt profile than the aroma, with that same breadiness and some sticky sweetness coming forward before a pleasing bitter/dry finish. Smooth drinking all the way through. Nice hop-forward aftertaste as well. A fine example of what a lager can be - they don’t have to be fizzy, piss-yellow and boring.

Bottle. Crystal clear amber color with a decent white head and nice lacing. Excellent aroma of hops with sweet malt. Good toasted malt flavor underneath the considerable hop presence. After tasting this at the Emerald Coast Beerfest I had to bring some home. Very good.

agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Deep copper color......very fluffy head. Fragrant hop aroma. Malt sweetness up front, extremely well balanced by a noticeable hop flavor......slightly crisp mouthfeel. Taste of hops continues in the back, with a long, slightly bitter finish. Probably the best lager I have ever tasted.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle from The Ducie, Manchester. Reddish-brown in colour with slightly off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with biscuit malts. Very floral taste with spicy characteristics and a bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too lively carbonation. In looks and character this is a close cousin to a flavoursome English bitter. Reading other reviews it would seem this is a different colour the world over. Odd, eh?

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Hopper than expected - grapefruit citrus, some lemon, beady, and great lager character. Really nice

OnTheTrail (314) - Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Pours clear copper. Aroma is malty, bready. Malty taste, some hop kick. Almost nutty. Not the most flavorful beer, but a solid lager.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2008
Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is honey with a bit of hops. The flavor is malty with a nice little hop kick to it. Somewhat grassy on the finish. Pretty decent lager.
