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."

This is what a lager should taste like. Take note big guys. Lots of flavor and no corn.

Had in SoHo, on draft. Very similair to Sam’s boston lager imo. But all together a bit bolder.. heavy hop and spice presence, medium bodied. Looked great being poured. Overall, above expectations.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2008 From... a can! Nice new way to enjoy this beer. Had this many times before but finally ranking after an afternoon on the lake and these suckers straight from the can. Medium dark amber pour with off-white head. Much more malt and flowery hops than expected from a beer labeled a lager. I always taste celery seeds when I drink this beer, which is a bit odd, I suppose. Heavier on the palate than a lager as well. Great session beer. Feels a little sticky sometimes. Really enjoyed this beer ever since having multiple pints at the Fat Black Pussy Cat many years ago in Greenwich Village...

From bottle... poured dark orange. Aroma was citrusy, but also slightly nutty. Packed with flavor -- bright and hoppy. Slightly dry finish. I loved this one, and I’ll definitely get it again.

12oz bottle. Pours deep amber, thick light tan head. Aroma is rich and full of malted barley and sweet floral hops. One of the best smelling beers from the east coast I’ve opened in a good while... Flavor is very light. Hints of toasted malts, honey, cardboard, and some leather and hay. Earthy finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle: Nice light brown color with a semi off white head. Large scents of hops. Very surprising on the first taste. Very smooth and not bitter.

Good solid lager. Could drink quite a few of these. Lots of flavor. Would like to try on draught sometime.

Had this during Armin Van Buuren’s set in McCarren park. Amber pour, not much head. Hoppy aroma, hoppy taste, smooth, a bit toasty. Lots of hops, they work well with the beer. Strong malt also. Quality brew, it will surprise you.
