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."

martpez (206) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2017
Lovely amber larger with a little froth. A little carbonated but makes up for it in its floral taste. A classic that stands up on revisiting it. Lovely beer from a large brewrey.

16 oz can shared by ebone1988. The pourbisba darker golden amber with a bright white head that falls to a thick ring with a few spots of soapy lace. The aroma is sweet up front. There is a light hoppiness to it that is a little strange and lightly messy. The flavor is similar. It’s got a sweet caramel maltiness to it and then a light bitter leafy hop. It’s a little messy, but not terrible. The mouth feel is a little light and nicely carbonated with a lingeringly sweet finish. It’s pretty good.

Warm dark amber / gold colour. Little head that dissapears pretty fast. It smells nice and fresh. The same goes for the taste, nicely balanced with fresh hops and malt. Not too bitter, not to fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
