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."

Blommig och söta toner av toffee samt litta citrus i doften. Smakrik med lätt brödiga toner. Harmoni. Slutsats: En mycket god lageröl.

Well, this is my first "technical" rating for a lager..don’t think I am in love with the style, however this beer does the style justice. I tasted it with BeerBaron617, my beer buddy... It’s got a nice pour - a dark honey amber color with a nice off white head. It has lots of bubbly’s in it, which I like :) It smelled really nice, malty and a bit hoppy too. Not what I expected out of a lager. Taste was pretty decent. Defiantly tasted the sweetness of the malt and maybe a bit of honey and caramel. I got a big taste of the hops...it’s just really not what I expected out of a lager. Cheers to Brooklyn for doing a pretty decent job.

Like the Brown Ale, smooth and full, with bold head, but hoppy with little aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 On tap at Beerbistro. I don’t really like lagers, but maybe I’ve just drank the wrong kind. Nice hoppy aroma, and a taste of hops, fresh fruit and malt. Very pleasant. I’ve since bought a couple of bottles at the LCBO and it worked well paired with a thai red curry.

Clear, orangish/amber color with a white head that had nice retention and left some real nice lacing. A few bubbles coming up from the bottom. Looks pretty inviting. Getting some floral hops at first with the smell. A bit more than usual with a typical "lager" style beer. Some lightly sweet smelling malts. Not too strong though. Caramel malt. Bread or biscuit notes also. The taste was of a nice light bitter touch that leaves me wanting another sip. Somewhat sweet in the taste. Well balanced and good. Only slightly sour. The mouthfeel was medium, dry, even, crisp and chewy. I really like this beer. I could drink this at any time during the year. Not real heavy. Good all around beer. I will definitely pick this up again.
