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."

12 oz bottle-pours a deep off white creamy head that stays around, then laces nicely while drinking. Color is amber. Taste is creamy, with the hops coming through.

Bottled, pasteurised, Wetherspoons World of Beer Promo. Deep amber colour, white head, not over carbonated. Surprisingly decent beer, heady fragrant hops with a good chunky dry malt body. Long finishing late hops, a very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 IT was another Lager in the festival, but it was not discusting as most macro lagers, I liked it so far, but it was mor elike a light Pilsener. Like El Salvador’s.

Clearish honey color. Smells like crisp apples. Fruity undertones. Good foamy head. Nothing special really, but good to drink if you don’t want to think about the beer you are drinking. It had an apple Jolly Rancher taste with no apple flavor if that makes any kind of sense at all.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Found this in Kyoto. Pours deep orage gold with a big white head, disipating quickly but decent lacing. Nose of grassy hops and a sweet herb/mint and flowers. Somewhat soapy flavour, good balance of hops and earth and tangerine malts. Tart and some cream. Sort of Odd. Bottle is only a month old but may have not travelled well. Sitting under those bright lights might have added some stale bread flavours.

Nice strong lager with a finish that hangs around with for a good finish. A lager not for the light beer drinker.

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Got this beer because I had nothing better to do. Definately not an ordinary lager. Darker than a pale lager and much, much hoppier. Ultimately, it is a nice and hoppy beer, but of the three beers that I had at the time, this six pack was finished last. A good beer, but I would rather drink something else.
