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."

Reviewed 11/30/2008 (Tap @ Flying Saurcer, Houston, TX): Pours an amber brownish body with a small creamy white head. Has a sweet aroma, fruit. Some hops in the nose. Grapefruity taste, sweet strawberry aftertaste. Malty. Watery palate. Has a soft mouthfeel. Hoppy taste. But too malty for my taste.

Sampled at Big Pour Mesa, AZ. 14 karat color with a touch of orange at its core. Very tiny eggshell head that left minimal lacing. Fairly sweet aroma although there is definitely a hop presence...can smell freshly cut fairways. Flavor is also hop forward for the style. Refreshing and enjoyable.

On tap at Big Pour Mesa. Pours a light amber with a small beige head. Nose is grassy hops and malt. Taste is sweet malts mainly with some decent hops in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Decent – hoppy for a lager.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 Bottle from Systembolaget Amber and slightly hazy leaves some lacing. A anekdot from last week when I had it in a night club: My colleagues comments were that the beer that I´d orderd smelled, and tasted like perfume, my explenation that it is american citrusy hopps was´nt bought... However, this is a good beer that leaves a veile even when served in the bottle.

Pours a dark gold/light brown colour. Malty and hoppy flavour aroma with hints of some caramel and nuts. Medium almost full-bodied beer. Excellent

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Wonderful light brown color. Aroma is of smoked malt and German hops. Light mouth-feel with some of the light graininess that you’d expect from a Vienna lager. Finish is crisp but mellow. Excellent. One of my favorite versions of this style. Once again impressed by Brooklyn.

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Tasting at Brewtopia. I will say that for a Lager style beer this is pretty decent. Amber pour. Whitish head. Aroma is malty and hoppy both. I get some sweet floral hops, some caramel and toffee malt. Flavor lends itself to a good balance between hops and malt without having that normal nasty lager flavor that so many beer get stuck with. Pretty refreshing and tasty.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Mild sweet aroma. Clear medium yellow body that is slightly fizzy. Light, pleasurable taste with a slight hop finish. Very drinkable, but not very intense. This is a great drinking beer, but has very little to offer in terms of breadth of palate or intensity of flavor.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Dark amber beer with an off white head. Sweet caramel, floral aroma. Good hop flavour, nicely bitter with a light syrupy sweetness to balance it out. Quite full bodied for a lager, but good nonetheless. Great beer, much better than expected

mmmbeer (1425) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2008
(12 oz bottle consumed Nov. 5, 2008- served in shaker) Poured transparent dark amber, low carbonation, half finger white head that tried to lace. Aroma of vinyl, hard water, and old wheat- YUMMY! Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt feel is ok, nice feel in the middle, hops on the backend and finish. Refreshing- the prototypical microbrew- which in this case is a good thing!
