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."

Yeah, I agree with the others. Quite a bit like a pale ale. Extremely full bodied and complex. So nice on tap.

Amber, medium white head. Malty, roasty aroma - some hop notes. Light body, some bitterness, some malty notes. Finishes bitter and a bit malty. Quite good!

Pours amber with a small head. Nice caramel and malt sweetness, smooth, biscuit, toast, some floral hops. Good sessioner.

I gotta say, I am impressed, great hoppy bitterness and a sharp taste to it, well carbonated and crisp, flowery, and a clean finish. Nice malt backbone as well, solid beer from start to finish, I highly recommend it.

Clean, light, refreshing. Not over flavoursome. Light malt, light body, great amber colour.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2016 Re-Rate: Aroma of biscuit-dough, solid maltiness, a bit of caramel, some light citrus fruit, floral hops. Taste us more sweet than bitter. I found that it leaves a kind of soapy aftertaste. Pours a nice amber, light medium body, with medium to stale carbonation. Solid, but could have been fresher.

3.5
LasseVPedersen (446) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, 35,5cl. Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Fruity amber lager aroma with red berries, peaches, citrus, herbal hobs in the nose along the typical biscuits, bready malty aroma. Flavour is initial shortly sweet, centred around the fruity sensations, as it quickly turns malty with clear a distinct hoppy bitterness. Ends dry in a long finish. Slick, dry texture with a medium body and average carbonation. A pleasantly surprise.

superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012
pretty good as far as Vienna goes. gentle floral aroma backed with a sweet malt note. flavour is quite earthy , again with a floral note. good balance.

3.9

Very nice lager, not comparable to most other industrial lagers. Reminds me of light IPAs, with bitterness and some citrus.
