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."

Theydon_Bois (11491) - 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!

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...

Bottled, pasteurised, Wetherspoons World of Beer Promo. Deep amber colour, white head, not over carbonated. Surprisingly decent beer, heady fragrant hops with a good chunky dry malt body. Long finishing late hops, a very enjoyable beer.

Lubiere (10760) - 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 poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel and citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel and light citrus with a smooth moderatly bitter finish.
