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."

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.

Hance07 (192) - DownSouth, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Pours a nice clear copper with small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is piney hops. Taste is a good balance between malt and the slightly hoppy finish. Nice beer I would buy again.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2008
LCBO about $2 per bottle. Hoppy aroma. Copper with a foamy white head that sticks around and coats the glass. Creamy, hoppy dry, clean taste. Easy drinking, all "lagers" should taste this could. Dry bitter after-taste.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - JAN 12, 2008
Pours amber with tight, white, lasting head. Caramal malt and floral aroma maybe honey too. Pleasant on the palate with the full malt, brown sugar flavour and enough bitterness to carry it. Simple but not too simple. It’s hard to find good american beer in shops in the UK and in the abscence of good APAs, this lager can work as a less hoppy alternative.

From bottle. Part of Dayton Beer Tasting July Event. Paired with Garlic Shrimp Skewers. Poured clear golden with a small off-white head. Floral and light yeasty notes on the nose Easy drinking with just a slight hint of sweetness.

Die_Kapusta (190) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Bright amber pour. White head. Aroma is malty and fruity with caramel and pine. Taste is sweet but balanced, fruity with some roasted notes, sirup and pine. Quite nice hoppiness for a mainstream beer. Not very complex but a solid beer, especially for a lager.

Probably one of the best lager style beers I’ve had, lots of character. Floral hops. Nice mouthfeel, very drinkable.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - JAN 22, 2010
12 oz. bottle pours a dirty peach with off white head. Initially, the aroma of hops pushes out of the pour, followed by a gentle wafting of caramel. Medium bodied with solid but not overwhelming carbonation. Flavors of crisp leafy florals in the front palate, warming to a citrus malt in the middle with a finish of earthy woods and hops. Slight citrus aftertaste. Enjoyable and versatile, this might become one of my go-to session beers as it’s a little lighter for me than SNPA.

Not a bad lager. Different than some.
