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."

Slight hazy honey-gold amber hue, with a small beige head, floral hop and toasted malt nose, with a citrus fruity note,with some toffeeish and biscuity accents, with a hint of bready dough in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a toasty and biscuity malt character,with a nice flowery hop citrusy note hint of toffee too, leading towards a hop bitterness finish.

Bottle. Crystal clear amber color with a decent white head and nice lacing. Excellent aroma of hops with sweet malt. Good toasted malt flavor underneath the considerable hop presence. After tasting this at the Emerald Coast Beerfest I had to bring some home. Very good.

I had this one on draft at the Emerald Coast Brew Fest in Pensacola, FL. Nice hop aroma and attractive amber color. The taste was very hoppy and really appealed to me. The drinkability was very high. I would recommend and will definitely have again, and I’m not a huge fan of lagers. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Golden amber color, with two fingers of fluffy, white head. Already I can sense that this beer is no ordinary run-of-the-mill lager. The aroma is pretty consistant with that of a pale or amber ale. Very hoppy. Grapefruit, other citrus. Some malts as well, although nothing stands out overall there. The flavor also seems less like a lager and more like an ale. Light hoppiness, which means the standard array of citrus notes and some malts, too. Watery body, very refreshing with a pleasing aftertaste. A very drinkable beer.

Clear amber with a good sized head. Medium body. Very clean flavour, sweet with caramel/toasted malt, well balanced with a good hit of hop bitterness. Straight-forward and refreshing.

Amber color. Great long lasting head. Very hoppy for a lager. I am not sure I have tasted a better lager.

Draft, copper color with a medium lasting head, very good hoppy flavor for a lager, wasn’t expecting it to have such a nice bite to it, nice bitter finish, overall it was a decent beer, nothing too great though.

Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Honey orange colored body with a two finger, sudsy, pillowy off white head. Spotty lacing. Hop aromas pour into the room upon the inital opening of this beer. Also we have some malt notes, honey, biscuit dough and grapefruit, but mostly floral hops. Hops, citrus, dough and sweet honey come through as the beer is consumed. Mouthfeel is heavily astringent, light to medium bodied, somewhat sticky and oily on the palate. FInish is short in length, a bit bitter but overall pretty bland and finishes a bit watery at the very end. Was hoping for more.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Draft. Golden color with nice maltly toffee aroma. Very drinkable brew that reminds me of a cross between Sam Adams and Yuengling. A great brew that I will surely have more of. One of my favorites.
