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."

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.

Bottled to pilsner glass - red color, citrus & malt aroma with malt. Starts off slow, but has a good bitterness in end.

Can courtesy of SantaTy5592 Pours a golden color with a little haziness in it and a giant foamy off white head. Aroma is citrus, bread, hops, caramel. This brew is light, hoppy, citrusy, malt, bitter yet easy drinking. Much better than expected.

3.3
nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2008
12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass. Poured a clear gold with a huge sparse white head. Aroma was piney hops and some malt. Flavor is hoppy with a good malt balance. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Pour was golden with a white head. Citrus aroma and flavor. Some carbonation came through, I was not impressed by this at all. Found the beer to be little better than most macro brews.

3.2
bhensonb (15744) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Medium dark amber color with a large frothy beige head. Aromas of malt and lightly spicey hop. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel, and a touch of citrus sour - which might be the hop. It doesn’t finish all that bitter, but it is well balanced. It’s a very tasty drink.

41cubs (250) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Pours light copper with frothy, here and then gone, just off white head. Smells like whole grains in the husk and taste very much like milled grains with a sugary tinge, reminds me of horse feed . Very raw flavors give way to a pleasing and full mouthfeel for the style. Lingering foul, stale aftertaste takes this rating down a bit. Pretty good though.

LilBeerDoctor (4193) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2008
On tap. Pours a brown/orange, small head. Lots of piney hops, sweet malt. This is a very smooth drinking beer and one of the best lighter lagers that I’ve had.

3.7
dolemite77 (184) - Maryville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Pours a clear burnt orange, with a rocky tan head. Aroma smells stronger of hops than most lagers, and the flavor matches it. This beer has much more going for it than I thought. The crisp malt on the back end of this is about all I can pick out that I would qualify as a lager. The flavor is rich and hoppy. The presence of the hops almost push this into more of a pale ale flavor profile.
