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."

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.

Draft, copper color with a medium lasting head, very good hoppy flavor for a lager, wasn’t expecting it to have such a nice bite to it, nice bitter finish, overall it was a decent beer, nothing too great though.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle at On the Rocks. Nice yeasty aroma with a fine amber pour that was suprising for a lager. The taste was also impressive with hints of honey, oats, and hay. Nice smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Needs a slight addition of malts but overall this was a great choice for the price.

IPAndy (120) - minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Amber color with head that laces throughout. Aroma is rich and flowery with a sweet hint (honey?). Flavor is fresh hops and somewhat smokey, slightly caramel-sweet malt. Finish is bitter and very well balanced, medium bodied. Excellent.

Amber color with a lot of carbonation and a creamy head. Malty aroma and taste, with a hop tingle in the finish. Perfectly balanced, with a smooth medium body. Very drinkable.
