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."

Beautiful amber color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, caramel. Reasonable body structure, featuring a quite strong caramel character supported by a strong (and quite aromatic) bitterness, and some fruitness (apricots).

So I finally tried Brooklyn Brewery’s flagship beer, the lager. But I did it in style: on tap, in Williamsburg at the Brooklyn Bowl. This was a great beer. Rich amber pour, considerable pure white head. Scents of malts and citrus. Regarding the taste, I actually got notes of mango. I don’t know. The beer had just enough complexity to keep me interested. The flavor was crisp and firm and overall the experience was stellar.

Amber color, nice white/brown/yellow, head. Aroma is metallic and floral. Flavor is metallic and a little spicy. Floral touches and also some vanilla. A very rich and nice tasting lager.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 Bottle. Dark amber, malty burnt caramel aroma, some hop aroma, very carbonated in mouth with toffee flavours, some hop toffee finish. Not too sweet thankfully 3.3/5 Re-rate. I love the hops on this now. Just wonderful. I don’t get the toffee so much nor was it over carbonated. I must like it as I bought two bottles in quick succession from Tesco.

Theydon_Bois (16472) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle share with JF on Southampton beer up - 09/09/12. Clear pale golden with a frothy off-white head. Nose is pale malt and a little grain - not much doing. Taste as nose with a little toffee and background citrus. Medium bodied with matching carbonation leading to a dry finish. Ok for the style but people are making much better lagers in this day and age!

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Clear, golden, well-carbonated beer with a lovely, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, lightly hoppy, and balanced. Nice, fruity, balanced flavor where some piny notes also find theire way. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and nicely hopped finish. A lovely lager. Wish more brewers could follow this example. (070512)

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma is malt and a good amount of hops. Taste is not so strong though. Good bitter finish.

TBone (15940) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
Bottled
Golden color, small but steady white head. Flowery, fruity nose. Extremely well-balanced malt and hop character. Feels more like pils than lager (what this Vienna means here?). Flowery, hoppy, world class brew.
