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."

Bottled: OK but a little thin. Mild hops with a faint malt follow. I’ll have to try it again - maybe I got a bad one.

Easy on the palate, and relatively strong aroma. Very drinkable and one of the best lagers available.

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Very crisp with a tiny bit more hops on the tongue then most logers, the smell reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston lager, but agin with just a bit more hops.

Che buona questa birra! davvero non mi aspettavo di trovarla così piacevolmente facile da bere. Dal colore ambrato ha una schiuma sfuggente, ma è negli aromi che più mi colpisce per il suo stile, agrumi e luppolo su tutti. al palato è dapprima dolce, di frutta, poi più amara. un buon corpo. per i miei standard è più che promossa.

emobassfoo (178) - Webster, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Rated while drinking: Pours a dull golden-orange color with a majestic off-white head. Big head. Smells of fruity hops and almost something spicy; maybe pepper. Great balance of malts and hops in the flavor, backed up by more hops near the swallow. Tasty! Smooth and crisp on the palate; makes you want more. Solid flagship beer for Brooklyn. Could drink this everyday with every meal.

12 oz bottle. Gold amber in color. A bit carbonated and creamy. Hoppy and a little bitter with hints of fruitiness. A well put together that you enjoy with any food or on its own.

nudiebear (177) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle at restaurant. Pours an amber gold with slight white head. Aromas are floral and green hops. Tastes dry and slightly bitter. Thinking of a grapefruit. Ok, a bit yeasty on the impression.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2008
this beer is a clear amber color and has no head. A very crisp malt aroma with light sweetness. The flavor is very heavy with malt and quite a bit of hoppiness on the back end.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Orange/yellow gold coloring. Minimal head. Aroma is sweet floral. Medium hops on the tongue to start. Then smooth and some burn at the end. Body is mild, with some hops at the beginning and end and some minor sweetness in the aftertaste. It starts strong and then weakens a bit and the nose seems more complex than the taste.
