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."

This accurate lager was my first introduction to craft beer. The Hoppy aroma and well balanced bitterness/sweetness make it my first recommendation for any new comers to specialty beer.

Pours an amber body with a small head. Hoppy and somewhat funky aroma. Nice taste, but nothing special.

Zymurgeist2 (1016) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap at the Admiral’s Club in JFK. Sweet malt, orange blossom and soft perfume aromas. Pours a clear deep gold with slight amber hues. Full white head falls away to a wide collar and dusting across the top. Collar is of minuscule bubbles. Massive lacing down the glass. Taste is lemony and slight soap. Crisp and semi-dry. Medium-thin mouthfeel. There is an orange juiciness that pervades the back half of the taste. Excellent, but seems to lack the classic malt of the style.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. It pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. The nose is toasty grain, biscuit, brown bread, floral and light caramel. The taste is crisp, toasty grain, nice bitterness, brown bread, biscuit, light florals, caramel and pithy lemon with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded, crisp and crushable. What’s not to like?

Zodiac (12) - - SEP 7, 2014
The best American lager I had. It has complexity and aroma of an ale, crispness of a lager. Refreshing, simple, yet interesting and different. Far away from usual pale lagers out there.

bierkoning (10199) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Blonde. Floral grassy citric aroma, like Tettnag hops. Floral, grassy fruity hopbitter flavor, lingering on in the aftertaste. Surprisingly good!

Douberd (2284) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2014
(Brooklyn Lager) Bottle 355 ml at home , poured into a glass tankard, ABV 5.2% Clear body, deep golden orange in colour, with a thick soapy head, slightly off-white. Small but with a good retention, it leaves medium lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma, some caramel and peppery hints, with light floral notes. Taste of light caramel, hops, grass, some spices but can’t say exactly what. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Quite dry palate. Pretty good.

whoisghost (61) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2014
Bronze/copper colour with a slightly off white head. A nice whiff of floral hops - gentle but very forward. A nice sweet lager - hints of honey and beautiful malts. Floral hops also present. Good but not great density, nice light carbonation.
