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."

Pours amber in color, has nice hoppy smell to it. Very nice hoppy bite in taste and goes down smooth. Overall good for its style.

35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep orange, clear, with a slight off-white head. Fruity hops aroma, slight caramel malt. Malty flavour, slight roasted with a minor bread like note. Fruity and bitter hops join in a bit later, given a rather dry flavour into the finish with a minor refreshing fruity note. Slight soapy mouthfeel/flavour.

Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2003
A deep red beer with a fine slightly orange head. Very lovely fruity aroma with sweet malt notes. The flavor lacks a little compared to the aroma - a little watery to start off, but then a sweet nice bitterness hits the back of the tongue and lingers for a long time. A very nice lager.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Amber lagerish beer. Full bodied. Lingering bitter aftertaste - hard work. Average.

Clear amber beer, small off white head. Crisp palate, dry. Minerals. Creamy rich pale malt, lagerish of course! Decent mild hops,=. Dry finish with a bitterish aftertaste. Decent lager after all!
