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."

Bobson (91) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle @ home with Muts51. Aroma is quite bland and doesnt give much away about the beer. Looks clear but a bit cloudy with an amber colour, no head. Taste is quite bitter and not particularly outspoken otherwise. Quite heavy for a lager though. Overall, very unexciting but not bad either.

10/20 ok but a bit too malty for my taste. Tastes a bit better when it warms up a wee bit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PintjeFritz (264) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Nice bottle but without detail information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature on the labels. Cloudy amber beer with a very nice cream-colored head, heavy bitter, the first smell is fruity, medium body, oily, light caramel and roasty, hops are dominated, long finish, very good, (I have 0.355l bottle)

Bawelt (726) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 16, 2016
Nez trs caramel, quasiment barley wine mais en lger. Un trs trs lger fond houblonn plutt agrumes mais difficile rellement identifier. Attaque malte en bouche, rapidement plus sche et trs trs lgrement amre avec les notes dorange amre. Longueur fine, discrte mais relativement du mme cru.

Flowery, malts, hints of caramel, beautiful amber beer with a good white head quite persistant, light body, very refreshing, perfect carbonation...a splendid dream in Brooklyn.

biir (1106) - Berlin, - SEP 13, 2016
Tap @ Astrastube, Berlin - Golden color with a touch of copper, creaming, disappearing head. Thick body, aromas of red berrys, floral hops, a bit soapy. Medium bitter finish. Dull mouthfeel. I miss the crisp freshness.

bartlebier (3729) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
12oz bottles and a few times draught near source 2010-2014. - Recently had the chance to revisit this at non-luxury ransoms now that Carlsberg Germany has taken over distribution from Radebergers swanky Braufactum and it has emerged in my local Edeka supermarket. - Cool copper pour, decent enough foam. Biscuity toast, wet spruce, woody bitter lemon and a thin layer of dry mineral toffee caramels poised against each other for excellent balance in aroma - a notch less malty (and geared more towards India Pale Lager) than Samuel Adams Boston Lager. - Thin toasted caramel biscuit body, all crisp for a session. - In terms of modern Viennas, Boston Lager has more caramel and rougher herbal hop edge, Berlins Lemke Original more malt character. Refreshing and crisp, excellent sessioner that appears to travel well despite the obvious IPA-dryhopping leanings.

Bottle. Orange to amber color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus hops. Solid malty base followed by caramel with long citrusy hoppy finish. Easy drinkable, refreshing, nice balanced
