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."

Brooklyn lager uit de fles. Amber kleurig biertje. Smaak is ook verder niet veel aan af te doen. Een typisch Amerikaanse pils smaak

Immediately clear what style it is. Great vienna style lager with great flavor, flowery, so much better than other 5% beers.

35.5 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn Culemborg. Clear amber with a thin white head. Malty aroma with some hops. Taste is medium bitter, mouthfeel is light. Lively carbonation and a nice clean finish. Wonderful thirst quencher.

Na povratku iz Ploca nakon ragbi utakmice zaustavili se u Makarskoj i tamo sam pronasao pivnicu sa dobrim izborom piva ..eto silom prilika nisam bio bas pri novcu pa sam kupio samo ovu i jos jednu pivu ...steta ...uglavnom ovo je nekakvo klasicno americko pivo koje nije bas ugodno za ispijanje ..plus je sto je ispijena uz more na suncan dan ...

commonmac (510) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Tap pour in a pint glass at Pub 819. Copper/amber color with minor head. Relatively showing off some lacing. Aroma of caramel and malt with a slight unpleasant funk. Taste leans on the malt characteristics with a sweetness that?s strange. Tastes heavy...mealy. Minor bit of hops come through but biscuit and cereal are the stars. Not really a beer I would seek out. I could envision this as a fallback if nothing else available.
