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."

wombat23 (1788) - Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Clear amber, off white head. Nose is malt, floral notes, a bit a fruitiness. Taste follows nose, with caramel and some breadiness. Clean finish. Paired well with grilled fish and vegetables. Exceeded my expectations.

Taste is fairly sweet, light bitter with a soft dry finish. Notes of caramel, malt, yeast, hay, cardboard. Texture is oily, light bodied with average carbonation

nice amber red color with a nice foamy head. dont know why bit the smell reminded me on oregano. the taste is fruity but not too much with a slight bitter note at the end. The hop and bitterness are not overlapping . a nice fine lager

martpez (339) - 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.

koleminer20 (3978) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2017
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.

Taste is floral, toasty, sweet, fruity, potpourri, good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, fruity toasty aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty damn good.
