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."

Bottle; Palate and appearance dont quite match the taste. I found the taste a bit dull and bitter for my liking but still appreciated the complexity of flavors that it contains. I must add that I did enjoy the hoppiness of this beer.

Ritzn (676) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2016
Clear amber with medium white head. Aroma is some doughy malt, with lots of fruity hoppy stuff above, honey, maybe peach, maybe some slight flowers as well. Taste is medium IPA bitterness without the clogging resin, citrus pip sour/bitterness, and some fruity sweetness. Nice and balanced, easy to drink. Everything fine with this one.

Bright balanced beer. I like more malty beers but this was a good alternative for a warmer day. Nothing outstanding but it's quaffable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinda shocked Ive never gotten around to trying this, but, then again, lagers generally arent my thing. Still, if Im gonna drink a lager, theres much worse to be found than Brooklyns. Drinks like the beer you wish you were drinking when you have an inferior American macro or crappy Euro beer. Workmanlike; no frills but none are needed. Bready, semisweet malts lead into a floral, easygoing but firm hop bitterness. What you want in a lager, no more, no less.

Mishnok (125) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
From 330ml bottle. Amber in colour with white head which soon faded. Bready, bit of citrus. Perfectly decent lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (6274) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Draft at Barcade, Amber gold clear appearance with a fitting white head and alright lace. Smell and taste of clean and corny lager, toast, grain, faint hops, and wood. Always liked this beer when Im in a pinch, its clean lager that does the job and isnt that costly.

Serapac (377) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle @Cool Bun. Amber with tiny bubbly off-white head. Sweet sugary aroma. Medium full body, bitter-sweet taste. Ok for a lager, but nothing very special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FinnIckler (138) - GERMANY - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle from a tesco in Bristol. Pours clear Amber. Nose is faint citrus and bread. Low but long carbonation. Palate is bread, a bit watery. Finish is fruit and bitter. A nice Lager

Its unfussy. Nothing complicated but a really good beer that you know you will enjoy every time you have one.

rodsquad (35) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle from Coop. Treacle aroma sweetening to Barley Sugars and finally Ice Cream Soda. Clear deep copper. Toffee apples and popcorn finishing on bitter hops taste. Smooth and creamy with high carbonation. A smooth and refreshing lager. Very nice indeed.

Nothing more than american lager. Nothing special similar to the budwiser and stuff. Maybe I dont enjoy american lager...
