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."

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 Pours dark amber color with thick white head and lots of lacing. Nice citrus aroma with sweet malt in the background. Taste is clean with a nice citrus hop bite at the start, a well-balanced malt backbone, and then lingering hop bitterness. A very well done beer that’s easy to drink, very refreshing. A lager with a bit of an APA personality.

Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Bottle. Dark golden/amber color with a white head. The aroma is hoppy and floral with notes of citrus and caramel. The taste is also hoppy and has a good bitterness. Notes of citrus, sourness and some sweet malt. Very hoppy for a lager beer.

This beer pours a clear dark amber color with no head but does have some spotted laceing. The aroma is very floral and you get some hints of malt and hops. It has a nice initial bitterness which fades rather quickly. There is also some nice hints of fruit which you dont notice untill about 3 or 4 sips. The palate is very smooth and warming, it has lots of hops and some mild hints of toffee which coat your mouth. The duration is very long and lasts for a while.

PatMac (17) - Wakefield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2007
The first sip was a surprise and then realized there is a hint of fruit. This is a very good lager similar to Sam Adams. The flavor is excellent. Buy more than a six pack of this one. Found in Laurel, MD

Strong hop presence in the nose, grains. Beautiful deep copper color with an ivory head. Bitter hop taste with decent malt backbone. finishes the same. Very interesting take on the style.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 The flagship beer of the Brooklyn Brewery, a concern which has reestablished beer brewing in the County of Kings, New York. This is a fine smooth heavy lager, flavorful with hints of sharpness. The color in the glass is burnished gold, with a small-to-medium cream-colored head. Best served very cold. A good beer to drink with lighter meats such as fowl or pork, it can be enjoyed just by itself.

4.9
LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 This is American, but rather delicious. Quite exquisite: perfumed, fruity, sweet, bitter. One of my favourite beers, but seems to have disappeared from here. Wretched shame.
