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."

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

Medium bodied, nice color. A solid lager but more interesting beers out there from Brooklyn

So this is the father of the craft beer movement? Golden colour, lasting white head. Very hoppy aroma, with some citrus notes. Taste is caramel, with a smooth bitterness. Refreshing.

"nice delicate balance of floral and citrus hops with a touch of biscuity malt. light and airy, this is a very nice session beer. looks typical for the style, but smell & flavor well above average."

Alengrin (3875) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Classic Vienna lager from New York apparently made to a pre-Prohibition era recipe. Pours a warm and pretty orange blonde colour, clear with very quiet sparkling on tiny bubbles, under a creamy, dense, yellowish, quite stable head leaving attractive lacing. Aroma is on the weak side and mostly reveals American hoppiness, with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, caramelly malts, walnuts, biscuit, tobacco and perhaps a faint hint of iron. Smooth, slick palate with medium carbonation, soft onset of dried fruits and caramelly malts, nuttier in the middle, finishing in a citrus peel-like, somewhat peppery hop bitterness of relative length, through which the slightly toasted maltiness shows up as well. This style seems the bottom-fermented equivalent of the English pale ales and bitters, and this one is very true to it. Nothing extraordinary, just plain enjoyable. Could drink this all night.

Maakun (2345) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Golden with white head. Light dry spices at first with dry biscuits, cake, peach, dried plums. Endive bitterness with some grass. Dry at first with some sweetness coming through and ending light bitter. Medium bodied. Bit chalky feel. Nice, but the palate is not my thing.

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.

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