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."

Bottle. The second Viennese lager I have really enjoyed (the other being Schellís Firebrick). Amber color with medium head. Decent balance between malt/caramel/sweet and the typical lager hoppy bitterness... However, I think that itís a little too hoppy for the style (or my tastes).

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.

Smells of sweet malts and a hint of citrusy hops . Flavor follows suit with the aroma, and has a really good finish. Recommend trying this if you have not, would love to try this on tap

Certainly has its own flavor and hoppiness. Acceptable, but leaves me wanting something. I couldnít see this as my regular beer.

12 ounce bottle and poured into a pint glass. It is a light brown colored beer and very clear with lots of bubbles, very inviting. It formed a small head when poured into the glass that becomes a constant layer of foam. Spotted lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is a light molasses. The taste is the same on the front end, but it finishes with a nice hop bite. The is a very refreshing brew and I could sit around and drink a bunch of them.

Aroma is full for a lager, closer to some brown ales Iíve had. Kinda nutty, malty. The taste is where you can tell itís a lager. Malty, slightly dry, but not corny like cheaper lagers, surprising dry hop bitterness at the end. Overall very pleasant. Goes well with pizza, too.
