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."

Frode (383) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle 33 cl.
Amber, off-white head. Hoppy fruits, malt notes. Slightly thinner than expected flavour, but good, with malts, bread and dry bitter hops.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2002
Deep brown color and rather oily on the palate, no doubt from the heavy addition of hops. Rather grassy aroma and a nice dense and creamy head.

3.4
onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2007
Clear amber with a good sized head. Medium body. Very clean flavour, sweet with caramel/toasted malt, well balanced with a good hit of hop bitterness. Straight-forward and refreshing.

sblsimone85 (379) - USA - JUN 7, 2014
Lager di ottimo stampo leggera di poco corpo ma un buon equilibrio e molto profumata, una punta di miele si unisce ai sentori floreali. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

3.7
albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2008
Draught at the Magician, New York City. This was served too cold, of course, but it’s still a classic beer: full-flavoured with a nice sweet malty base and a long, dry finish. I had this several times on my recent visit to New York and it made me wish (and I know that this is sacrilege for a Camra member) that there were decent keg beers widely available in the Britain so I wouldn’t have to drink John Smith’s or Guinness when I go to bars with no cask beers.

3.3
happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Bottled sometime in 8-03(best before 2-04)As far as lagers go this is pretty intense.Aroma of so so juicy cascades(dark peachy aroma when warm_ and some grainy malts(In typical NY brew fasion).Almost amber/gold,OK head/good lace.For being 6 months+ old the hops really held well(is this pasturized?)More like an amber ale/APA than a lager.Hops and grain on the palate(thank God for hops).These are going for .69$.Decent.Eczematic's rating kinda nailed it though(commercial desciption dead on).

3.2
ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: Malty, yeasty aroma with a floral and fruity hit from the hops. A: Pours a golden amber with a quarter finger of white head. T: Not a strong flavor, wheat, grains, citrus, yeast, spices and hops. P: Crisp, smooth, and clean. O: Nice session beer.

3.5
Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Publix. Pours a light yellowish amber. Grassy fairly hoppy nose for a lager with a decent light amber malt background. Bitter upfront with a slightly sweet finish. All of it mild but refreshing and drinkable all the same. Good for a session.
