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."

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Amber pour with nice off white head, slight lacing. Bready nose with some floral/herbal/grassy hop shining through. Flavor is big on the noble hops, mild citrus, bread crust on the finish. Smooth medium body. Very drinkable and much better than their ales.

nazbion (294) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2015
Pours a nice clear amber with persistent white head. Some floating particles (yeast?) are visible. Herbal and floral aroma. Taste is malty and light bitter, with long bitter aftertaste. Very light body, easy drinking.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2006
This beer pours a sweet reddish amber color, and leaves a thin white head that disappates quickly. The smell is very malty with caramel aspects that give hints of honey and lemon. The taste of this lager is crisp and refreshing the sticky sweet malt weighs on your palate in a good way and there is a lemon wheat flavor on the palate that makes this a balanced refreshing brew to drink all day def session quality.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours a deep gold with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Light and fresh aromas of: caramel, grass, dough, cooked vegetables, and vanilla. Perfectly balanced flavor with a finish that nods to bitter. An excellent lager.

Amber pour, big head and lace. Bold and hoppy for a lager, with good carb and a sweetness pervading. Fair.
