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."

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 can. Poured clear amber with a creamy white head. Floral hop aroma. Light-medium body, creamy carbonation, finishes a bit flat. Malty base, a bit grainy with a sweet caramel flavour, herbal hops with a peppery note. A nice drinkable brew.

anstei (2246) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle. Aroma is grass, hay, pine. Body is medium, rather sweet, lively carbonation. Quite bitter, a bit fruity. Rather dry palate. Not your European lager, but quite good.

I hadn’t tried this in a long time and was super impressed. To me it’s much better than back in the day. Lots of good malt flavors, good hopping, almost an ale really. Reminds me of Sam Adams lager and a pale ale, like a combination of tastes of those. First class, it deserves all the success.

Full tasting Brooklyn style lager. Has no aroma, bold taste. Feels like I should be drinking this at a old pub. A beer you have in the middle of a week ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dalekliz (922) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Can. Pours a clear amber with a big foamy white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of yeast and malt, crisp and floral. Taste is dry and sharp, of bready yeast, grains, and a bit of hoppy bitterness. Lingering malt and hops and ends a bit watery. Very refreshing and tasty.

BeerRenter76 (1014) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 12/18/08. A rather strong floral hop presence for a lager, kinda unexpected and nice. Mid amber body, decent carbonation, with a thin off white head that left good lace. Flavors of some sweet malts with a slightly bitter hop finish. Overall it was better than expected and a pretty decent brew

2.8
beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
Vollmundig und rezent. Dunkles Malz, leichte Röstaromen und eine kräutrige Hopfung.
