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."

Una birra davvero interessante pur essendo reperibile al supermercato, di un bell’ambrato con schiuma poco persistente ma decisa in bocca con un luppolato molto gradevole.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pour is medium amber. Nose is immediately flowery, with some light herbal undertones, with a very light toasty malt aroma backing. Flavor is crisp, flowery hops, medium bright hoppiness, toasted an biscuit malts, Light body and refreshing. A somewhat enjoyable beer.

jookos (5105) - FINLAND - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Update: it is a bit better, but not,much. Bottle. Orange hazy. Bready malts, caramel and a lot of green hoppiness on the nose. Body is lightish, crisp bitter with green hops and some caramel. Some metallic notes, dusty yeast. I wonder if this is old, I remember it being a lot better..

Can from State line liquors. Pours with a brownish tint and a half inch of foam. Not getting much from the nose except for a note of floral. Lots of hop flavor on the tongue with a hint of bitterness on the finish.
