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."

Somewhat reminicent of a Sam Adams Boston Lager. Nice reddish-amber color and great hop/malt balance. The caramel maltiness is balanced out nicely by the citric/fruity hoppiness. Dangerously easy to drink. A well made "pre-prohibition" lager.

A very good lager that I enjoyed in the best bar in the world (brickskellar Washington DC). I had heard many good things about this brewry so I had to check this lager out. It has very good flavor in the malt. A nice bit of hoppiness and it drank very smooth

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours clear amber, almost an iced-tea orange with a thin white head. Floral hoppy aroma. Sweet blend of light tart bitterness with full malty hops. Full body with slight creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy finish that left me craving more. Overall a pleasant surprise and a good drinking beer.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Aroma: fruity, lovely hops, full-bodied malt, vaguely musty. Appearance: almost clear amber, some whiute, yellowtinged head that quickly lowers. Flavor: bitter, full-bodied thanks to some swetness, hoppy afterbitterness. Palate: just right carbonation, rich, refreshing, a little slimy.

This one had the predominantly malty biscuit aroma of a Vienna, and a slightly off-white head. The liquid pours with the dark copper color. The taste was extra sweet even for a Vienna, and was balanced nicely though with floral hops. A good session brew.

Having visited the brewery numerous times, this classic is one of my favorites. I love its floral aroma, and particularly the balance between hops and caramel.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Deep gold color. Fluffy white head. Citrusy hoppy nose with biscuity malt overtones. Assertive hop flavors are well balanced by the strong malts. Clean finish.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle. Pours golden amber, a little darker than expected for the style. Fresh hops and sweet malt on the nose. Medium-light body, flavors of citrusy hops and buiscuity malt; dry, crisp finish. Doesnt have the smooth texture of some lagers, and I dont know if Id identify it blindly as a lager. Drinks more like a light American pale or amber. Im consistently pleased with Brooklyn, and this is a tasty take on the style.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2003 Pours clear copper, smallish white head that sticks around quite well, and leaves good lacing. Body has a lot of tiny bubbles meandering about. Aroma is mainly caramel and some other malt sweetness, some hops playing around in the back to balance it out nicely. Flavor starts with some caramel, middle is clean with a slight fruitiness, ends with a good chewy and tasty hoppiness. Body is medium, medium carbonation level, easy drinking and smooth.

I shared a 12 oz bottle of this MereLikesBeer. It pours a dark honey amber with tan head. The aroma is hoppier than I expected, but with a nice sweet malty background. I was very pleasantly surprised with the flavor and the aroma, which was both plenty hoppy and malty, with some nice caramel notes. Very tasty brew! Cheers!
