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."

Aroma is hoppy and floral. Color is a nice copper. Flavor follows up on the hop aroma and is balanced by a maltiness. A fine lager except I’m not sure what category this belongs in.

Had this in ’06 on tap in times square for the first time and loved it. Trying in now two and a half years later from a bottle and it’s mediocre. It’s amazing what time spent in the upper eschelon of craft beer can do to your old ’favorites’. In this beer’s defence, I think it was a great ’gateway beer’ to explore what else is out there. If you’re just getting into ’craft’ and don’t have a taste for much yet, this is the beer for you. I thought it was wonderfully hopped for a lager, and I credit this beer with opening my tastes to the IPA style (which is now my preference). Give it a try and see where you go.

From bottle. Part of Dayton Beer Tasting July Event. Paired with Garlic Shrimp Skewers. Poured clear golden with a small off-white head. Floral and light yeasty notes on the nose Easy drinking with just a slight hint of sweetness.

Creamy non persistent head with a wonderful polished teak colour. A subtle yet persistent toasted chestnut flavour. I am astounded at how good this is. You see,living proof lager doesn’t have to taste like a urine sample, now does it guys!

Linnet (1831) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2008
pours a big off white creamy head amber colour, looks very appetizing. Aroma is very floral and fruity with notes of malt and hops. It has a medium body with distinct biterness and a quality that i can’t clearly describe, but I love it! mouthfeel is rather sparkly, but it goes together perfectly with the flavour. If I had to choose a beer to drink for the rest of my life this would be it!

Spab (3838) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours clear deep amber/gold with a small off white head. Nose of floral hops, malts and perhaps a hint of wheat. Taste of malts with some nice hoppiness coming on towards the somewhat bitter finish. Medium body. Overall pretty impressive.

3.3
drywallman (362) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2008
This one had the predominantly malty biscuit aroma of a Vienna, and a slightly off-white head. The liquid pours with the dark copper color. The taste was extra sweet even for a Vienna, and was balanced nicely though with floral hops. A good session brew.

3.4
NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a copper/amber color with a light white head. Floral aroma and hints of citrus and caramel. Surprisingly more hoppy than I expected but nicely balanced b/w the malts and hops. Light bodied. Finishes bitter. Pretty good.

3.2
IPAgain (8) - Fleming Island, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2008 does not count
Bottled to pilsner glass - red color, citrus & malt aroma with malt. Starts off slow, but has a good bitterness in end.
