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."

Bottle; Palate and appearance don’t quite match the taste. I found the taste a bit dull and bitter for my liking but still appreciated the complexity of flavors that it contains. I must add that I did enjoy the hoppiness of this beer.

Shain (97) - ISRAEL - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle, 330ml. Pours light brown, clear, with a short light head. Aroma is gentle: white whine, lightly hoppy and slight malt. Body is medium-light with soft carbonation but a strong tang. Mouth feel is slightly oily to watery, but not too thin. Tastes slightly sour, bu pleasantly so, slight sweetness and light hoppy bitterness, very well balanced. Flavors of light malt and strong american hops, herbal, lightly bitter, and quite citrucy. The sweet-sour-bitter flavors are playing well together, keeping each sip interesting and fresh tasting. The beer is refreshing, but not too light, it’s complex flavor prevents it from being drunk too quickly.

Floral aroma, bit honeylike sweet. Malty bready, bit sweet floral taste, bit of viola. The sweetness is well balanced with a noticeble firm bitterness. Dry and refreshing

Muggus69 (1308) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
355mL can from Beer Cartel BB 16SEP15 Clean golden body, holds a white head. Low aroma, clean enough; floral hop, bit of spice, and grainy malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Moderately sweet grainy malts upfront, subtle floral spicy (Noble?) hops. Restrained bitterness, clean overall. Non-offensive, well made, not bad really.
