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."

Amber dark orange pour from the bottle. White head that maintains a layer on the top of the brew with minimal lacing on my lager glass. Malty pretzel flowers in the aroma with a bit of lemony grassy notes. The flavor is up front with the malty butter biscuit that gets chased by the floral and citrus tones from the hops. I like the balance this beer has with the crisp dry finish. Becoming more of a lager fan with each new one I taste. This is a nicely crafted Vienna!

This quite a surprising lager as it was quite tasty, it wasnt too sharp or bitter and it wasnt overly carbonated. It was quite smooth and drinkable. Not really any lacing with small amounts of white head in the typical lager yellow. Bottle at thomas Ingoldsby spoons Canterbury.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2007
355 mL bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate head. Aroma is of sweet malt with a bit of grassy hops. Taste is moderately bitter, with a bit of an apricot sweetness. Bitterness makes for a clean finish with little aftertaste. Overall, described as a lager, but sure is tastier than any of the macros.

Not usually a big fan of lagers, but the extra hops in here really make it pretty good. Grassy and slightly sweet with a toffee malt flavor.

Hallstein (139) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a nice copper-redish brown, with a nice head and good carbonation. Aroma of caramel and malt. A little hops mellow out the aroma nicely. Velvety, delicous mouthfeel, and a nice malty flavour with hops that does not pop out, but are well balanced. Definately the best lager iíve ever tasted.

Bottiglia 355 ml comprata al Mondo Birra Di Max a Mestre. Schiuma fine alta e mediamente persistente, colore giallo ambrato, aroma luppolato e citrico, al palato corpo leggero e buona carbonazione, buon equilibrio di malti e luppoli, con finale amaro e secco, direi una buona lager, 3 spanne sopra a molte lager europee.

brianza_ale (137) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
33 cl. Pours a medium dense off-white head, amber and slighlty cloudy. Smells quite aromatic: caramel, tosted, malty, and with that typical citrus american hops note. Tastes caramel, orange, citrus, herbs; quite sweet and malty at the beginning, reveals a quite smooth hoppy character, with low to medium biscuity bitterness. Average carbonation, light bodied, dry finish. One of the best lagers/commercial craft I usually find the supermarket, has a pretty decent quality overall

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 On tap... golden brown with a off white head. Fruity and distinct aroma. Love the hoppiness in this beer. Nice fruity flavors. Subtle touch.
