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: MAY 15, 2006 This beer is truly one of the things I miss most about New York City! I always look forward to going there to have one.

12 ounce bottle and poured into a pint glass. It is a light brown colored beer and very clear with lots of bubbles, very inviting. It formed a small head when poured into the glass that becomes a constant layer of foam. Spotted lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is a light molasses. The taste is the same on the front end, but it finishes with a nice hop bite. The is a very refreshing brew and I could sit around and drink a bunch of them.

Highly drinkable, full flavored lager with a sturdy malt backbone and pleasant well bitter hop finish.

Aroma is full for a lager, closer to some brown ales Iíve had. Kinda nutty, malty. The taste is where you can tell itís a lager. Malty, slightly dry, but not corny like cheaper lagers, surprising dry hop bitterness at the end. Overall very pleasant. Goes well with pizza, too.

Tall boy. Aroma of slight malt. Pours copper with tanish head. Taste is nice mix of malt and hops. Some crisp grain notes popup on palate. Nicely structured beer.
