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."

12oz bottle: Poured a golden honey color with a suitable white top. The aroma is a delicate balance of honey and caramel malt and grassy and piney hops. Soft and inviting. Drinks easy with a subtle dose of sweet malts and rindy hops. Finishes slightly bitter and leaves me wanting more. Good.

Clear amber body with an appealing, frothy off-white head. The aroma is more hoppy (flowers, mostly, but also notes of orange peel and grapefruit) than malty (caramel, baked cookie), but presents both. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Moderate acidity. Finishes with a slight sourness in addition to a mild bitterness. Dry. The medium body has lively carbonation and a watery texture. Reminds me a bit of Sam Adams Boston Lager, but more flavorful and a richer body. Nice lager.

12 ounce bottle. Copper in color, white foamy head. Grapefruity and hoppy. It nice. I think I would like it more when it gets warmer out. Nice carbonation...just right. Lots of great flavor. Nice beer.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Bottle. Light amber color w/ a white head. Nice hoppy aroma: citrus and a bit flowery. Refreshing, well-balanced flowery hop flavour: citrus and grapefruit. Nice bitterness. A filling and very drinkable lager beer from Brooklyn. One of my favourite lagers.

malrubius (2834) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Copper with beige head. Hop and caramel cookie aroma/. Complex caramel malt, nicely toasted, and hop flavor character. Nice bitter finish. Medium light body and medium carbo. Very nice and complex enough not to be boring. Satisfying.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2008
LCBO about $2 per bottle. Hoppy aroma. Copper with a foamy white head that sticks around and coats the glass. Creamy, hoppy dry, clean taste. Easy drinking, all "lagers" should taste this could. Dry bitter after-taste.

35,5cl bottle @ home. Copper! very dark for a lager - we shall continue... but found not much, except malt and a very bitter hoppy finish, but hey, the last time i looked it said lager on the bottle. Where did the 3.43 average come from?
