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."

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.

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

Decent hops. Not enough body for me. Its just somewhere in the middle of the spectrum. Would I get it again? Eh. It was a Special at the bar. Enough said. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

This was a good solid lager. It was pretty hoppy and sweet and had a good smooth taste. Was hoping for a little thicker taste though.

No será la mejor lager del mundo, ni la más extrema, ni la más destacada. Pero sin duda es una lager muy bien hecha que tendría con gusto en mi nevera. Es aromática como cabe esperar por su procedencia, huele a flores y caramelo. Tiene al beberla el contrapunto dulce y amargo, equilibrada, bien hecha. Ligera de cuerpo y refrescante.

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.
