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."

Pours a medium amber with a small, short-lasting head that dissipates to a nice lacing. Aroma is balanced between yeast, malts and hops, but is very mild overall. Taste is fairly hoppy for the style with some hints of the malt character behind it. Mouthfeel is still on the watery side, but it doesn’t detract from the overall experience. Another excellent, drinkable offering from the Brooklyn Brewery.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Very light aroma with hops and malt. The taste is OK with a touch of caramel and some strange metallic extraneous flavour. 120414: Re-rated from draft. Very pleasant. Hoppy, thirstquenching lager,

Pours a clearish golden amber color with a short lived whitish head. Smell is fruity, mildly hoppy and some subtle yeast. Taste is crisp and lightly hoppy up front with some yeasty flavor and malt behind that. Some light lingering hop fruitiness and bitterness making it very crisp and drinkable. More like a pale ale than the lagers I’m used to drinking and this was surprisingly good. Nice session beer with flavor.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours a completely transparent amber brown, beautiful carbonation, and a thick frothy head. Very yeasty aroma, maybe some toasted wheat, chestnuts, and caramel. Full body and well balanced flavor. Starts with a nice malty-ness, follows is some caramel, a tiny bit of hops and a crisp clean finish. This beer has great body, great flavor (though not very complex), great balance, and I enjoy it very much. Fantastic.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing as it slowly recedes. Fruity orange aromas. Soft with upfront caramel and a lasting citrus finish.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Fluffy to rocky, largish off-white head. Light, clear maple colored body. Decent retention, Good lacing. Aroma of floral hops like a light pale ale, light caramel and bread. Taste is a bit of cardboard, light hops, and a bit watery. Lightly fizzy

ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours a orange golden color with a medium sized puffy off white head. Nose is caramel, sweat, and toast. Taste is crisp and refreshing with notes of citrus and summer fruit. Some corn on the back end. Not bad, highly quaffable.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 This lager pours a very nice deep golden color with a nice head. Nice mellow nose of bread and just a hint of hops. Taste is light crisp easy drinking with a slight fruity taste. Not a bad lager, and will definitely hip other folks to it!
