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."

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2008
12oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours copper with a one finger off-white head. Smells of caramel, biscuit, and grassy hops. Taste is caramel and dough. Finishes clean, lightly bitter, with some metallic element. It left some pretty incredible lace all the way down the sides of the glass, nice enough to rival some of the best Belgians. Pretty good session lager for the warmer months.

pours brilliant copper color with medium white head. aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy, especially for style. very nice floral hop flavor with a farily complex malt backbone. drinks almost more like a light ipa than a lager....really yummy beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 Bottle. Pours a amber gold body with a thin top. Aroma is pale malt, subtle fruits, and a moderate hop bittering aspect. Drinks pretty easy, with a strong hop kick to finish this one.

NDbeerdrinker (167) - West Islip, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with thin head. Aroma is not very strong, but is pleasant with slight citrus aroma. Equally malty and hoppy and easy to drink with a slight toastiness. Very good beer and something that I could drink everyday.

Stine (1768) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Tap at Rustico. Clear, dull orange; thin rimmed white foam. Sweet, herbal aroma; floral honey, grass and leaves, orange, cinnamon; even keeled malt and hop presence, refreshing and sweet. Fairly basic crisp malt flavor; light iced tea, biscuit, cinnamon, honey; crisp cereals and earthy noble earthiness. Bitterness is citrusy; malt bill full and rich. Medium palate; moderately carbonated, fresh and forward. Satiating and charming, warm, refreshing example; spot on.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft @ Rustico. Pours a clear, deep golden-amber color; very light tan head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing, coating the glass; a gorgeous pour. Solid amounts of tea, toasted malts, and earthiness / red fruits in the aroma; crisp, toasty, tasty nose. Medium mouthfeel: toasty malts, red fruits, and some soft brown sugar upfront; solid levels of carbonation; chewy, toasted malts and crackers and earthy hop bitterness; very drinkable. Medium finish: bread, earthy bitterness, and crisp crackers; some slight fruit.
