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."

argo0 (12647) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 Clear amber with medium of-white head. The aroma is sweet, floral, some bready. Taste is medium sweet, floral, some tart. Finish is light grassy and floral. Mild bitterness. Has a medium body -- readily drinkable, and a real delight. Great lager for an anti-lager person.

(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.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Powerfull great cascade hoppy aroma with loads of flowers. Alas not spo great taste. Heavy bitter flavor, with no balance at all. Watery palate and lively carbonated.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Softly sweet, your nose will be begging for more. Unfortunately, once you let it onto your tongue your mouth will be begging for more too! Very american, with a spicy sweet fruitiness. A pure clean taste - you know it’s good for you!

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 (11951) - 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.

Benzai (11865) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2011
Clear dark orange color, small white head. Not a very nice smell. Very standard and actually pretty poor, expected better from this brewery.

12 oz bottle-pours a deep off white creamy head that stays around, then laces nicely while drinking. Color is amber. Taste is creamy, with the hops coming through.
