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."

a decent lager, though not the best of the brooklyns. found the hops to be a bit too pungent, but at least they're high quality hops.

There’s a honeyed caramel note on the nose whereas the palate has more hops with a lovely mild bitter, hoppy finish. There’s a great, creamy body to it as well. A wonderful lager.

man I love good beer from a can, and this is a damn good one! I found that i kept smelling this over and over, it really just grabbed my attention. It has a great blend of malts and hops. Well rounded brew and I suggest getting the canned version if possible.

MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
Pours amber. Forms a medium, surprisingly thick head for a white, with a very high lce. Aroma is orange, cedar and pizza sauce (!), with some malt as well. Taste is a bit caramelish, sweet, mildly hoppy, and no more pizza sauce. Great!

Carrefour Grenoble 2.65€. On ne sait jamais quoi attendre des bières américaines, mais celle-ci est intéressante. Le nez est puissant, le goût suit, très florale.

Clear orange-ish color. Low to medium carbonation. Complex aroma. Nice fruitiness from the amber malts, bready. Bright American hops. A bit of potato? Fairly dry, with a good dose of light toast. Nice grassy, hoppiness in the finish. Refreshing. A very good lager.

tbonde (303) - DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
50 cl draught@Oslo Airport in Brooklyn Lager glass@approx 7 degrees Centigrade. Pours clear orange with medium white head. Pretty faint aromas of malt and caramel with some American hops also present. The dry-hopping coming clearly through with a taste of floral American hop nicely balanced with malt, roasted malt and caramel. Not sweet, just round. Slightly bitter, lingering aftertaste. More hops, more taste that most lagers and I like that. Another good brew from Brookly Brewery.

nudiebear (302) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle at restaurant. Pours an amber gold with slight white head. Aromas are floral and green hops. Tastes dry and slightly bitter. Thinking of a grapefruit. Ok, a bit yeasty on the impression.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 (amber lager) ASPETTO SCHIUMA: bianca, abbondante, fine, con media persistenza COLORE: oro carico-ambrato, limpida AROMA VOTO (1-10) profumi fruttati, con note agrumate, quasi esotiche, qualche sentore erbaceo , su una base maltata con un carattere tostato, caramello, biscotto, ed una leggera sensazione di alcohol SAPORE VOTO (1-10) il fruttato quasi scompare, lasciando una leggera sensazione astringente che si mescola con sentori erbacei dati luppolo di chiara provenienza USA. Il tutto a smussare una struttura maltata dominante, con note tostate e caramellate. Finale secco con retrugosto tendenzialmente amaro TEXTURE VOTO (1-10) corpo medio, morbida in bocca, media carbonatazione COMMENTO FINALE VOTO (1-20) dopo tante ales, si ritorna al mondo lager, in stile vienna, poco frequente, anche se sotto una prospettiva totalmente differente. si ritrova una base di malto consistente che fornisce volume e morbidezza in bocca, con toni biscottati molto puliti e piacevoli; si insinua discreto ma efficace l’amaro dei luppoli, con appunto l’aggiunta di toni erbacei non propiamente teutonici. risultato positivo ben bilanciato senza cadere in una sovre-luppolatura di cui spesso peccano gli americani. per il mio gusto personale ringrazio la mancanza di toni troppo fruttati in bocca e avvertiti invece al naso che facevano presagire una lager molto - troppo - aromatica. una carbonatazione un pelino più consistente forse non avrebbe stonato. ottima a pasto grazie ad un bilanciamento pressochè perfetto che la rende molto versatile... e scende che è un piacere.

(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a amber color with a large frothy head. Has a thick lace too. Aroma consists of caramel malt balanced with a floral hop quality. Tastes of light to medium bitterness and light sweetness. Medium to full body, oily texture, light carbonation and great finish.
