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."

very hoppy for a lager. probably the hoppiest lager i’ve ever had. very similar to an ipa. my only complaint is it could have more malt flavor

I initially tried this because Kung Pao likes to drink it. I just don't know what they see in it. It also features the distinct, awful aftertaste that ruins so many of Brooklyn Brewery's otherwise good beers.

Foamy white head tops a copper body. Nose is hoppy, fruity, citrus. Medium body. Clean, crisp taste. Thought it was a very good lager.

Also on draft at Silk City. Good looking pour ( i poured it myself), but really a drikable and forgettable pint. BTDT.

Orange/yellow gold coloring. Minimal head. Aroma is sweet floral. Medium hops on the tongue to start. Then smooth and some burn at the end. Body is mild, with some hops at the beginning and end and some minor sweetness in the aftertaste. It starts strong and then weakens a bit and the nose seems more complex than the taste.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Little short lasting head. Amber brown color. Caramel malt with earthy flowery hop aroma. Light body. Light bitterness accents slight malt taste. Very little aftertaste, it finishes real quickly, almost as if it evaporates off of your tongue.

bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2004
This lager has a cloudy golden to amber appearance with mild floral aroma, small white head, moderate hops are present with a strong grapefruit flavor in the taste. Smooth going down with a carbonation bite at the end. Nice Lager, I enjoyed it better than the pilsner.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2004
08.25.04 12oz bottle. Reddish amber pour with fine head. Some flowery aromas are surprising along with a more comfortable biscuity and lemongrass nose. Flavors are subdued, flitting atop a slightly sweet cardboardy front and a floral perfume that lingers in the throat and nose. Not at all what I expected, not totally swell. Better choice at this particualr bar than duds like Stella, Newcastle, Smithwicks, etc.
