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."

Poured from bottle to a lager glass a nice amber color - a nice dark amber for a American lager. Pours carbonated and with a decent head. You can smell the hops right after the pour, very hoppy. A little bitter on the palate but the taste is very consistent and smooth. Certainly at the top of my Lager list and probably my favorite Brooklyn.

Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a light head. Hops, orange and some malty caramel on the nose. The taste has some sweet caramel notes and some nice hops. Good QPR on this lager!

Tasted 09 Feb 2008. Clear orangish amber color with a carmel, malty aroma. The malt flavor has a "biscuity" sweet flavor ending with a earthy, peppery, bitter hop character. Has the bitterness at the end expected in lagers. Oily texture whole way through the tasting.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2008
this beer is a clear amber color and has no head. A very crisp malt aroma with light sweetness. The flavor is very heavy with malt and quite a bit of hoppiness on the back end.

Poured a honey color with a medium head that did not fade quickly. Aromas of sweet malts and floral hops. Taste was very sweet with a hint of caramel and wheat. Overall a great lager.

aroma is full, with sweet malts mixing with floral hops. pours a dark amber with a big head that stays present throughout the duration of the drink. flavor is a great balance of malt and hops, featuring plenty of citrus flavor and a hint of caramel. medium bodied. A very nice session beer.

Pours a nice clear copper with small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is piney hops. Taste is a good balance between malt and the slightly hoppy finish. Nice beer I would buy again.

I really enjoyed this vienna style beer. The aroma was malty and sweet but the taste was of high hops and bitterness. The cold aging of the beer rounded out the bitterness giving it a good hoppy finish. All of the Brooklyn beers have been tasty so far, i look forward to exploring more of their flavors.
