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: APR 29, 2013 På ølsmaking med Garrett Oliver. Mørk ravfarvet med hvitt skum. Aroma av brent sukker og fårikål. Smaker også rosin. Fin friskhet og grønn humlebitterhet, god kullsyre. God ettersmak. Smakfult og ganske lett. Minner om bokkøl. (Den Gode Nabo, 28.04.13)

Bottle, poured into pilsner glass. Beautiful. Copper, middling white head which stays there forever, super lacy. Fruity caramel aroma. Cant decide where the fruit aromas are coming from, they seem too smooth to be citrus, but its leaning towards orange. Big, smooth hop thump on first taste, which stays just as round to the end - not sharp at all. A lot of flavour for something so easy drinking. Medium bodied. Superb.

Here is a Lager with some actual taste to it! Very good and enjoyable, has flavors of caramel and some hoppiness to it.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with thin head. Aroma is not very strong, but is pleasant with slight citrus aroma. Equally malty and hoppy and easy to drink with a slight toastiness. Very good beer and something that I could drink everyday.

posikyle (165) - Alabama, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma is very malty. Flavor is malty, with some sweetness in the end. Not too heavy, not too watery, one of the better lagers out there.

haggis03a3 (164) - Piedmont, California, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Quite good lager. Fruity and flowery European-lager-tasting hops added to a full bodied American lager. It tasted familiar but much hoppier. It worked and is very refreshing.

This one takes a little getting used to. Nice fizzy head and some decent hoppiness. Solid 3.
