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 beer should be labeled as an IPL as the hops over-power the other wise appropriate aroma and taste of a lager. Definitely not a Vienna style beer. Once I got past the fact that this tasted and smelled like an extremely hoppy IPA, this is a very nice beer. The color was nice coppery but had the look of a hefeweizen with yeast apparent in suspension.

This is one of the beers that got me into seeking out a lot of new beer, and now here i am paying fucking $10 for a pint. Gee thanks. Anyways, a dark orange amber. Aroma is piney hops, taste is smooth caramel, mild bitterness and clean finish. A classic.

Appearance is amber, a white fizzy head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma- malty, caramel and toffee, hop hints. Taste- lots of caramel and toffee, some hop bitterness, creamy malt, biscuity, nutty, hint of zesty fruit towards the end. Very nice.

355ml bottle at home. Clear amber/orange with a medium white head with low retention. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium bitterness with some sweet tones. Citrus, grass, some hops and herbs. A tasty and refreshing brew.

De geur is heel lekker, schuim krijg je bijna niet als je uit schenkt, de smaak zelfs is nogal waterachtig

16 oz can poured into a shaker. The aroma is light, mostly sweet citrus and caramel with some bread crust. It pours a clear, dark shade of orange-yellow and has a thick white foam head. This reduces down to a thin ring with a light dust sprinkling on the surface. It leaves behind a light, fuzzy messy lace. The taste is a good balance between medium sweet and bitter. The medium bodied beer is fizzy with an oily, slick texture. The finish is primarily orange and caramel with a surprising amount of spice and a touch of resin. It’s crisp and dry with an aftertaste of lingering spice, pine, and wood chips. Very clean.

I thought it was mostly a hype, but this beer is indeed surprisingly good for a lager. Fresh and quite hoppy. Good.

Pours a medium amber. Visible carbonation. Not much in the way of head or lacing. Aromas are light. What is there is a blend of light citrus, caramel and wet cardboard. Tastes are dry caramel, a bit of biscuit, a bit of citrus on the swallow. Overall, this is a fairly mild beer. As a lager I give it credit for bringing more to the table than a lot do in this category, but the word "forgettable" keeps creeping into my mind when compared to most beers I drink..

Malty and citrusy taste. Deep amber color with a white head. A good pick if you want a malty beer wich fits perfektly to hot days in the summer
