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."

Talk about backlog. No rating even for the lager. This is one that got me started. I feel it has changed and for the worse. Used to have a nice creamy mouthfeel and nice caramel malts with a hop essence to balance it out. Used to be great.

Oh squiggly line, in my eye fluid.
I see you there, lurking on the periphery of my vision.
But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.
Are you shy, squiggly line?
Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the centre of my eye?
Oh squiggly line, it’s alright, you are forgiven.

Bottle. Copper pour with a small off white head. Hoppy nose with elements of dirt, butter, and citrus. The flavor is hops up front and "goldfish" malts. Fizzy and watery.

Changed (463) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
12 oz. Pours translucent gold, small white head with pretty good lacing. Really nice aroma (slightly spicy, with lighter fruits (mostly apple) mixed in. Taste is dominated by an apple/pear juice kinda mixture- alcoholic apple juice? HELL YES. A good amount of complexity with this beer- and some hops at the end too. For 5.2%, this could be a session beer to reckon with!

MrBunn (2867) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Can. Pours a slightly cloudy brownish amber with a two finger dense head and aromas that are an interesting mix of spices (coriander and pepper), apple juice, grass and pine needles. Flavor is a decent mix of dusty grains, spices and apples. This is pretty good for a lager in a can.

3.6
Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours translucent bubbly copper with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is leafy english hops, apple and pear esters, honey-biscuit malt. Flavor is honey, pear, apple cider, biscuit, subtle maple wood and raisin character, undertones of caramel and chocolate, and a soft hop presence. Overall complexity is very subtle. I’m tempted to say its like a pear cider with a bready aftertaste. Palate is light being a lager, there is a somewhat carbonated bite but overall very smooth. A very good lager.

njbfr (113) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Pours a golden amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is heavy hops, not what I was expecting from a Vienna. Flavor is akin to an IPA and certainly not what I wanted in a Vienna lager. Complex malt character is kind of ruined by the hop flavor. Incredible head retention and lacing! Some of the best I’ve ever seen.

3.2
Nordcore (1698) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle. Light amber with some red in it. Clear with a small head. Aroma; Lots of fruits with a small bitter ending.

bembelembe (219) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 8, 2009
UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Appealing amber body color with small head. Roasted caramel malt with bitter herbal pine hops. Strong fruity aroma. Biscuit & wood notes. Medium-high carbonated. Bitter-herbal aftertaste. Very enjoyable refreshing beer.

2.9
Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pours amber with a huge, foamy cream head. Mild caramel and straw aromas but the piney hop bouquet really shines through here. Nothing forward flavor-wise, even a bit weak. Just some hops and toast in the finish. Could use some more body. Very drinkable but nothing special.
