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."

very hoppy for a lager. probably the hoppiest lager i’ve ever had. very similar to an ipa. my only complaint is it could have more malt flavor

Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Had this during Armin Van Buuren’s set in McCarren park. Amber pour, not much head. Hoppy aroma, hoppy taste, smooth, a bit toasty. Lots of hops, they work well with the beer. Strong malt also. Quality brew, it will surprise you.

nice and hoppy with a mild malty biscuit sweetness in the middle. Really crisp and clean flavor. Smell is hoppy but also a little like melon candy - overall though, not fruity. Very straightforward, very good. Better than all other low alcohol hoppy beers I’ve had, and way way better than all low alcohol lagers Got this because it was a lager in a can, and I had heard that Brooklyn made good beer - but I thought that it would still suck - cuz damn, its a lager in a can. But it is good. I could drink many of these.

Nice dark lager. It pours very smoothly with perfect carbonation. The taste is very balanced and smooth. This is a well crafted beer.

AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Amber - Gold appearance - Strong Carmel and Hop blend. Slight bitterness makes it a little more complex than the avg lager. hint of fruit -- very refreshing.
