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."

I had this one off the tap at a great bar (Sunset Grill in Allston, MA) A very nice hoppy beer but I thought it went down a little rough. I would definitely try this one again and probably even pick up a 6 pack if I could find it.

Deep amber color and a pleasant aroma with a hint of fruityness. An average flavor which is a bit too dry for my liking. A light hoppy aftertaste that is good at first, but gets rather dull.

I bought this beer cheap at the local servo when I was visiting my mate’s house to make sausages. Basically it was nice and cold, but nothing flashy: just a good honest beer with hints of petrol and jack-hammer fluid. There was also a hint of tar to keep you rev heads out there interested. Plenty of upholstery in the finish, well hopped and palate fresh like Judas in a Valiant. Peace.

Pours a light amber color with one finger head. Not much aroma here, a little malt and a little floral. Taste is spicy hops with some lemon. Finish is dry and bitter. Biterness does not make me want to take another sip. Not my idea of a sessionable beer. I would pick it over the macros but probably will not seek this one out again.

You can smell the hops just as you open the bottle. The malts are present also but very subte. It looks great also, with a beautiful dark golden color. The taste is comprised of hops and malts, with a good but not too strong bitterness. It’s a very good beer, very flavourfull and balanced.

Pours a very clear copper/gold with a nice white head that leaves light lacing. Not a huge fan of the aroma, very malty but also slightly skunky. Taste is a whole other story. nice malt notes, crisp and refreshing with enough of a hop balance that adds nice floral notes and keeps it from being overly sweet. After taste sours a little but is not terribly long lasting. Quality beer especially as far as the style goes.

This is the only Brooklyn beer ive seen in my neck of the woods. And this is also the best lager I think i’ve tried. Beautiful amber colour, nice big head. Very malty nose, fresh sharp hops, citrus. Went down very easily, balanced quite well. Sharp and bright. Please send more of your beers to London!

Creme acastanhado. Bem formado. Denso. Líquido cor de mel. Bastante carbonatado. Turbidez elevada. Aroma de média para baixa intensidade. Adocicado. Um pouco cítrico. Amargor forte. Um pouco cítrica...

A bit shy aroma. Great balance between hops and caramel in flavor. Smooth and tasy. Yummy. But is a Vienna?
