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."

Not in love with this one... Almost a flowery, skunky, malt on the aroma. Taste is just OK.

브루클린 브루어리 라거 5.2% ABV 유명한 브루클린 라거. 달달하고 쌉쌀한것이 가볍게 들이켜기 참 좋은 맥주다. 누구와도 친할것 같은 똘똘하고 센스있는 넉살좋은 친구가 연상되는 맥주. 토요일밤 딱이네

christhoel (276) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
I bought this beer because I never had it before. I’ll buy it again, because it impressed me so much. For a lightish lager, you can’t go wrong with this.

ANZUShophunter (33) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Bar, Brisbane. Beautifully rich amber colour with persistent head. Modest aroma with sharp flavour. However, this beer is a long way from home and my experience with vienna lagers is that they do not travel well. Hope to try in NYC some day to compare.

SkillsFactory (21) - ITALY - APR 11, 2015
Color rame, media persistenza della schiuma, leggermente velata dai lieviti in sospensione. Al naso note floreali ed erbacee di fieno. In bocca malto molto presente ma ben bilanciato, mediamente carbonata. Retrogusto che prevale leggermente verso il dolce del malto, gradevole.

50 cl draught@Oslo Airport in Brooklyn Lager glass@approx 7 degrees Centigrade. Pours clear orange with medium white head. Pretty faint aromas of malt and caramel with some American hops also present. The dry-hopping coming clearly through with a taste of floral American hop nicely balanced with malt, roasted malt and caramel. Not sweet, just round. Slightly bitter, lingering aftertaste. More hops, more taste that most lagers and I like that. Another good brew from Brookly Brewery.
