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."

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2004
Amber color, nice white/brown/yellow, head. Aroma is metallic and floral. Flavor is metallic and a little spicy. Floral touches and also some vanilla. A very rich and nice tasting lager.

3.4
Oakes (18794) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
Bright amber-orange coloru. Slightly chewy, caramelly aroma. Full body. Lightly toasty, hints of caramel. Clean. Fairly flavourful brew. Nothing terribly special in terms of either flavour or aroma but quite well executed and with enough body and nuance in its caramel/toast notes to keep things flowing. Nicely done.

3.8
TBone (18223) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
Bottled
Golden color, small but steady white head. Flowery, fruity nose. Extremely well-balanced malt and hop character. Feels more like pils than lager (what this Vienna means here?). Flowery, hoppy, world class brew.

3.7
jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Pours a very nice clear red amber in the glass. Nose is very full citrus and malts. Taste has nice malt balance, some dry hops and citrus.

3.6
yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Clear, golden, well-carbonated beer with a lovely, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, lightly hoppy, and balanced. Nice, fruity, balanced flavor where some piny notes also find theire way. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and nicely hopped finish. A lovely lager. Wish more brewers could follow this example. (070512)

FatPhil (17078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Softly sweet, your nose will be begging for more. Unfortunately, once you let it onto your tongue your mouth will be begging for more too! Very american, with a spicy sweet fruitiness. A pure clean taste - you know it’s good for you!

2.5
Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2011
Clear dark orange color, small white head. Not a very nice smell. Very standard and actually pretty poor, expected better from this brewery.

3.5
brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 4, 2011
A: The pour is a light amber color with about a finger of white head. S: Starts off with quite a bit of toast and bread. Just a sweet malt profile overall. There are some floral hops and a mild grass note. The necessary lager yeast aroma is present, as are some mild esters. T: Things don’t deviate much on the palate. Sweet toast and bread malt flavors with a bit of a toffee note. Minimal bitterness with floral and grassy hop flavors. A few fruit esters give a bit of depth. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Sort of an ubiquitous beer on the East Coast, it seems. I found it to be pretty enjoyable.

3.1
Dedollewaitor (16383) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 21, 2007
Clear orange gold with an off white head. Nice american hops in the nose. Easy metal & thin body. Slight malty & bitter hops The hops shines through and is very nice. OK
