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."

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 On tap... golden brown with a off white head. Fruity and distinct aroma. Love the hoppiness in this beer. Nice fruity flavors. Subtle touch.

Pours a nice copper-redish brown, with a nice head and good carbonation. Aroma of caramel and malt. A little hops mellow out the aroma nicely. Velvety, delicous mouthfeel, and a nice malty flavour with hops that does not pop out, but are well balanced. Definately the best lager i’ve ever tasted.

A honey gold color with a small one finger head. Not an extraordinary aroma but sensational lager from such a big brewery. The most balanced mass produced lager on the market.

I struggle to call this a lager, so if I had a vote on style it would’ve been low. If you ignore the fact they call this a lager what do you have? An excellent well balanced session beer

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 This lager is absolutely gorgeous to behold with its amber shade and soapy, pure head. It’s also loaded with flavor, thanks to a bold burst of crisp hops. Sweet maltiness tempered by a fresh hoppiness. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this beer.

Rich, malty American lager - thicker and fuller tasting than most lagers. Perfect beer for an autumn day 28/01/14

Astograph (13) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a fast white head, small bubbles. Light aromas of hop and honey, strong aromas of malt and earth. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness, followed by a perfect dry finish. Wonderful beer.

Kolor zloty. Piana gesta. Nasycenie srednie, tj. takie jak ma byc. W zapachu slod i owoce, w smaku zas duzo chmielu.
