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."

12oz bottle, darkish yellow hue, diminishing white head, no lacing, smells a little clove like but not too much of taste, tastes a bit of banana and sour, a touch sweet, overall a good lager, don’t love the brewer but maybe their inherent taste fits well with this style, serviceable in a pinch, probably a good session beer albeit at 5.2

Drank straight from the bottle. Exhibited a slightly floral hop character coupled with some bitterness and minimal malt sweetness. Drank pretty good with BBQ. Clean finish and quite refreshing.

This is one of the beers that got me into seeking out a lot of new beer, and now here i am paying fucking $10 for a pint. Gee thanks. Anyways, a dark orange amber. Aroma is piney hops, taste is smooth caramel, mild bitterness and clean finish. A classic.

Appearance is amber, a white fizzy head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma- malty, caramel and toffee, hop hints. Taste- lots of caramel and toffee, some hop bitterness, creamy malt, biscuity, nutty, hint of zesty fruit towards the end. Very nice.

355ml bottle at home. Clear amber/orange with a medium white head with low retention. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium bitterness with some sweet tones. Citrus, grass, some hops and herbs. A tasty and refreshing brew.

De geur is heel lekker, schuim krijg je bijna niet als je uit schenkt, de smaak zelfs is nogal waterachtig

ARH (370) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014
16 oz can poured into a shaker. The aroma is light, mostly sweet citrus and caramel with some bread crust. It pours a clear, dark shade of orange-yellow and has a thick white foam head. This reduces down to a thin ring with a light dust sprinkling on the surface. It leaves behind a light, fuzzy messy lace. The taste is a good balance between medium sweet and bitter. The medium bodied beer is fizzy with an oily, slick texture. The finish is primarily orange and caramel with a surprising amount of spice and a touch of resin. It’s crisp and dry with an aftertaste of lingering spice, pine, and wood chips. Very clean.

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

Pours a medium amber. Visible carbonation. Not much in the way of head or lacing. Aromas are light. What is there is a blend of light citrus, caramel and wet cardboard. Tastes are dry caramel, a bit of biscuit, a bit of citrus on the swallow. Overall, this is a fairly mild beer. As a lager I give it credit for bringing more to the table than a lot do in this category, but the word "forgettable" keeps creeping into my mind when compared to most beers I drink..
