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."

Scopey (16223) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. It pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. The nose is toasty grain, biscuit, brown bread, floral and light caramel. The taste is crisp, toasty grain, nice bitterness, brown bread, biscuit, light florals, caramel and pithy lemon with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded, crisp and crushable. What’s not to like?

MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle. Lovely acidic, hoppy aroma, a little perfumy. Bright copper colour, unstable white head. Flavour starts off quite bitter, turning flowery and acidic and finishing with a nice bitterness. This beer is very nicely hopped on all levels.

bhensonb (15958) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Medium dark amber color with a large frothy beige head. Aromas of malt and lightly spicey hop. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel, and a touch of citrus sour - which might be the hop. It doesn’t finish all that bitter, but it is well balanced. It’s a very tasty drink.
