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."

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

(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!

BeerLS (20) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Very nice blend of malt and hops. Not too sweet, bland or overcarbonated like alot of lagers. I can drink this often. Excellent lager.

Tap at Draught House
Pours a weak, uninspired amber with a leafy strawberry mixed in water odor. Flavor is autumn leaf and malty sweet nut. Average mouthfeel. More like a Bronx Cheer than a Brooklyn beer.

Bottle @ Michelle and Rob’s wedding: This beer pours a golden amber color with a nice head. The aroma was a little maltier and hoppier than most lagers. The flavor was smooth and well balanced. Hints of hops, caramel malts, and not very complex. An excellent beer, one I may have thought otherwise before trying.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Pours a dark golden amber and looks like a bock. Excellent carbonation. Pours with a lot of head but wettles down to 1/4 inch in a short while. Aroma is malty, pure and clean. Clavor is malty with a littlw spice, some mild sweetness and a good hop presence. This beer is damn good for a lager. The finish is full. Body is medium. Light lacing. Notes of clean crystal malt and slight bitterness on the finish.

djd07 (15547) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange golden color with a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is wheat, caramel and bread. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is first a light hop with a crisp malt finish. A great session beer, glad it finally made it down to texas.
