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."

Had a sample, found this to be, for a lager, one of the best I have ever had. Lightly fruity, slightly hoppy, has flavor.....lovely stuff.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with slight white head. Not much in the nose. Taste is light-bodied, lingering bitter finish lager. It does what it’s supposed to do. Nothing really stands out here for me.

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.

Vells (696) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 20, 2014
Quite intense hoppy nose, pleasantly fruity, light malt background, sames goes for taste, thou finish is quite disappointing - thin and bit metallic, that goes in contrast with awesome start. Light sweet with moderate bitterness. Overall decent lager, good for its style

Pours an amber body with a small head. Hoppy and somewhat funky aroma. Nice taste, but nothing special.

Zymurgeist2 (1030) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap at the Admiral’s Club in JFK. Sweet malt, orange blossom and soft perfume aromas. Pours a clear deep gold with slight amber hues. Full white head falls away to a wide collar and dusting across the top. Collar is of minuscule bubbles. Massive lacing down the glass. Taste is lemony and slight soap. Crisp and semi-dry. Medium-thin mouthfeel. There is an orange juiciness that pervades the back half of the taste. Excellent, but seems to lack the classic malt of the style.
