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."

Good for a Viennese lager. Has a nice label, which is probably my favorite part of this beer. Otherwise, the flavor is kind of flat, but it’s decent if you damn near freeze it.

Bawelt (551) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 16, 2016
Nez très caramel, quasiment barley wine mais en léger. Un très très léger fond houblonné plutôt agrumes mais difficile à réellement identifier. Attaque maltée en bouche, rapidement plus sèche et très très légèrement amère avec les notes d’orange amère. Longueur fine, discrète mais relativement du même cru.

Flowery, malts, hints of caramel, beautiful amber beer with a good white head quite persistant, light body, very refreshing, perfect carbonation...a splendid dream in Brooklyn.

biir (785) - Berlin, - SEP 13, 2016
Tap @ Astrastube, Berlin - Golden color with a touch of copper, creaming, disappearing head. Thick body, aromas of red berrys, floral hops, a bit soapy. Medium bitter finish. Dull mouthfeel. I miss the crisp freshness.

bartlebier (3422) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
12oz bottles and a few times draught near source 2010-2014. - Recently had the chance to revisit this at non-luxury ransoms now that Carlsberg Germany has taken over distribution from Radeberger’s swanky Braufactum and it has emerged in my local Edeka supermarket. - Cool copper pour, decent enough foam. Biscuity toast, wet spruce, woody bitter lemon and a thin layer of dry mineral toffee caramels poised against each other for excellent balance in aroma - a notch less malty (and geared more towards India Pale Lager) than Samuel Adams Boston Lager. - Thin toasted caramel biscuit body, all crisp for a session. - In terms of modern Viennas, Boston Lager has more caramel and rougher herbal hop edge, Berlin’s Lemke Original more malt character. Refreshing and crisp, excellent sessioner that appears to travel well despite the obvious IPA-dryhopping leanings.

Bottle. Orange to amber color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus hops. Solid malty base followed by caramel with long citrusy hoppy finish. Easy drinkable, refreshing, nice balanced

bonev (283) - POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Piwo klarowne w kolorze bursztynowym z bardzo skromna piana tworzace ledwo co obraczke wokol szkla. W aromacie czuc lekkie owoce, troche kwiatow i trawy cytrynowej. W smaku bardzo lekko, troche karmelu i może rodzynek. Dosc slodowe z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie i goryczka na srednio niskim. Wyszlo naprawde dobrze jak na lagera.
