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."

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

This is one of the best Lagers on the market. It is consistently smooth and flavorful while packing more of a punch than most beers in this category. It is as full bodied as a beer of this style can be and it works great.

Amber-range body with a nice foamy head. Smells malts, flowers and some caramel. Pretty much the same taste, with no aftertaste. Thin body and high carbonation.

500 ml bottle - Apart from the spectacularly iconic branding, it isn't anything special. A session lager, no real head and dark brown colour.

Una lager muy buena, bastante aromática para su estilo, con un lúpulo relativamente fuerte. Parece una pale ale, y digo yo que mejor te tomas una buena ale.

12 oz. bottle. Pours nice, clear honey-ish amber with visible carbonation. One-finger white head. Nose was somewhat lacking- got a brief hoppiness that disappeared quickly leaving just a little malty note. Medium body. Nice little bit of hop bitterness but sweet malts dominate through a crisp finish. Definitely a good beer if I’m in the mood for it, but I just think it’s not really my style.

Gout de carton, tres seche. Manque de houblon. Cardboard taste, very dry, lack of hops...

On Tap. Deep Amber, moderate head and good condition. Initial flowery hop aromas followed by a malty toast and bread note. Pine resin, hops and citrus notes in the mouth with some caramel malt and a long hoppy finish that dries toward the end. I added a slice of lemon.
