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."

Burgers (344) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Amber beer with thin lacy head. Nose of candied peel. Taste medium sweetness and bitter. Lively CO2. Mildly astringent. Finish is long and refreshing. Beautifully rounded.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Pours a clear, light copper color with a solid off-white head which leaves great lacing. Aromas of bread, light caramel malt, and subtle pine and grassy hops. The palate is medium in carbonation, light in body with a lasting finish. The flavors is malty upfront and ends with a pine-tree bitterness. Overall, the beer is refreshing and drinkable. There’s a good balance between the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness on the back end, and it’s a pleasing beer to look at. I wish the aroma was stronger and included more, and the pine-like profile of the hops is a bit cloying.

PintjeFritz (339) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Nice bottle but without detail information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature on the labels. Cloudy amber beer with a very nice cream-colored head, heavy bitter, the first smell is fruity, medium body, oily, light caramel and roasty, hops are dominated, long finish, very good, (I have 0.355l bottle)

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Overall I felt this was a somewhat bland beer. No reaction to this whatsoever and very unremarkable.

Rich amber color, decent head. Beautiful boquet of several fruits and flowers. Generous amount of hops nad malt for a lager. Complex and balanced.

nudiebear (336) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle at restaurant. Pours an amber gold with slight white head. Aromas are floral and green hops. Tastes dry and slightly bitter. Thinking of a grapefruit. Ok, a bit yeasty on the impression.

As far as lagers go, this one is absolutely the best I’ve had. Just a clean, crisp beverage; you can’t really go wrong with one. Trust me, pick up a 6er or head down to the brewery on Friday night.

Draft...amber in color, strong hop taste, white head, this is one of Brooklyn’s best in my opinion. And a lager, no less.
