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."

Warning! Early amateur rating! Amber lagerish beer. Full bodied. Lingering bitter aftertaste - hard work. Average.

Clear amber beer, small off white head. Crisp palate, dry. Minerals. Creamy rich pale malt, lagerish of course! Decent mild hops,=. Dry finish with a bitterish aftertaste. Decent lager after all!

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle. Lovely acidic, hoppy aroma, a little perfumy. Bright copper colour, unstable white head. Flavour starts off quite bitter, turning flowery and acidic and finishing with a nice bitterness. This beer is very nicely hopped on all levels.

yngwie (12721) - 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)

harrisoni (12674) - 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.

TBone (11926) - 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.

Oakes (11831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
Bright amber-orange coloru. Slightly chewy, caramelly aroma. Full body. Lightly toasty, hints of caramel. Clean. Fairly flavourful brew. Nothing terribly special in terms of either flavour or aroma but quite well executed and with enough body and nuance in its caramel/toast notes to keep things flowing. Nicely done.

(12oz. bottle) Pours a golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange pulp, toasted grain, dustiness, and some florals. Flavor of hops (grass, floral, earth) and toasted malt with a moderately bitter finish.
