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."

thewolf (11553) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2006
Pours dark amber with little head. Aroma is very hoppy, though yet it has a spicy quality to it. This expands to the taste, where spices and a flowery feeling add to the hoppy bitterness...

Lubiere (11228) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2007
I had this on tap at Newark Airport and thought the barman made an error and brought me a pale ale. However, this bottle from the LCBO confirms that it was a lager. A nice copper amber ale with a thick lacing off white head. Surprising nice floral hops in aroma with light biscuitty malt. In mouth, this is a fresh hoppy pils, with dry crisp malt, floral hops, medium bodied. You can taste the hops upon burping. This was a great acquisition by the LCBO.

Bottle. Blonde. Floral grassy citric aroma, like Tettnag hops. Floral, grassy fruity hopbitter flavor, lingering on in the aftertaste. Surprisingly good!
