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."

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Nice bready malt aroma with just hint of noble hops. Nice white head atop amber beer. Taste is towards sweet. Carmel and very, very light diacetyl present. Very light floral hop flavor. Seems to have a little bit of a fruity character. Enjoyable beer.

I’m not old enough to have experienced pre-Prohibition beers but I imagine this what it tasted like. Very strong malty and rye flavor. Rich, intense classic beer flavor. A good drink.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2011
It pours an amber color with a 1 finger off white head that quickly vanishes to a cap. It has a constant amount of carb and some tiny lacing. I get a pretty huge amount of floral notes on the aroma with some subtle carmel. The flavor is pretty malty for a lager. I get some good sweet carmel notes and some floral and some decent spices. A pretty well balanced offering. It finishes dry and with some lingering grassy notes. This is not your typical lager, but something better. A very drinkable session beer.

A very flavorful lager, clear gold color, dry aftertaste. What a good lager could and should be.

Bottle from Føtex, Denmark. Pours golden amber with a foamy medium and off-white head. Fresh dry bitterness, light bodied, easy to drink.

Medium bodied, nice color. A solid lager but more interesting beers out there from Brooklyn

Can't believe I haven't reviewed this beer. These dependable everyday beers often get overlooked by me. This is especially atractive now that it's available in a can here, which means you usually get them fresher. Pours amber with a finger of off-white and fluffy head, slight chill-hazing. The aroma is balanced with a malty backbone clad in an elegant east coast hop dress. Medium roasted and slightly caramelly malts, some pine resin, and herbalness. Light to medium bodied palate on the dry side, fresh, medium length with a perfectly balanced and refreshing hoppiness. This won't knock anyones socks off, but it's always a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours a completely transparent amber brown, beautiful carbonation, and a thick frothy head. Very yeasty aroma, maybe some toasted wheat, chestnuts, and caramel. Full body and well balanced flavor. Starts with a nice malty-ness, follows is some caramel, a tiny bit of hops and a crisp clean finish. This beer has great body, great flavor (though not very complex), great balance, and I enjoy it very much. Fantastic.

unstablefable (227) - SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Pours thin with a medium Amber very un lager like colour with fluffy light head. on the nose large notes of floral and citrus delightfully enticing, much more that you would usefully expect from a lager. Tastes largely of the hops that you smells with a lovely bitter carbonated kick. The 5.2 abv balences out the malt/hop balance nicely. On the palate it is light with a large flavour profile very little of the "wet corn flake" taste you useilly find in lagers. Overall this beer is fantastic, I can see why this beer is their flagship brew, could drink a lot of these and still enjoy it on the 4th drink,
