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."

Cruzan59 (197) - Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2008
12oz bottle (variety pack) from Bayville Package Store, Fenwick Island, DE...pours amber in color, frothy white head (cold pint glass right out of the freezer)...mild but sweet malty aroma with a hint of citrus...mildly bitter flavor, some hops, malt...decent lacing...little bit of a thin mouthfeel, went down fast...easy drinking good tasting lager.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle: Poured deep copper to amber in color. the nose showed off citrus, caramel and had a nice spiciness. The palate was sweet (caramel) but also had a balancing bitterness with some noticable citrus. Soft, plush and medium-bodied.

3.2
austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Sparkling amber, small fizzy head. Herbal and biscuit malty nose. Flavor is slightly buttery caramel malts, herbal hops. A bit watery but smooth palate. Nicely hopped, crisp lager, not that far from a (really) poor IPA even.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 Appearance: Dark amber, almost no head. Aroma: Quite malty, can smell the hops. Sweet. Taste: A bit boring. Malty aftertaste. Info: 355ml bottle, 13/8-2005, 1/300

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - JUN 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Copper murk with tan/white head. Nice malty taste. A good blend of sour and bitter. Nice hops bite in the finish. Full flavored yet very drinkable. Tastes a bit like southern iced tea.

33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON. Slightly hazy golden/light amber. Pronounced hop aroma, nice sharp hop bite. Lighter body than hoped for, brief bitter finish. Drinkable and balanced but I’d go with a Three Floyds variety over this.

3.8
HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle from a Brooklyn mix pack. Pours a nice amber, pretty solid white head. Aroma is great: toffee, caramel, with hints of bitter hops. Taste is dry with bits of caramel, toffee and a bitter hop finish. This is better than Great Lakes Eliot Ness.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle; poured a n orange-amber with a medium white head; somewhat creamy. Aroma was great for the style, dominated by flowers and oranges; earthy. Found it to be pretty carbonated. Dry and bitter for the style finish. Toffee and caramel makeup the initial thrust of the beer, then some sweetness and it finishes with grassy and flowery hops. Definitely above average for the style. Surprised it took me so long to try this.

3.8
That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
I’ll be damned. A non-skunked lager. I didn’t know it was possible. Better than Sam Adams Bahston Lagah. Delicious brew. I’m diggin it.
