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."

LasseVPedersen (446) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, 35,5cl. Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Fruity amber lager aroma with red berries, peaches, citrus, herbal hobs in the nose along the typical biscuits, bready malty aroma. Flavour is initial shortly sweet, centred around the fruity sensations, as it quickly turns malty with clear a distinct hoppy bitterness. Ends dry in a long finish. Slick, dry texture with a medium body and average carbonation. A pleasantly surprise.

16 oz can poured into a shaker. The aroma is light, mostly sweet citrus and caramel with some bread crust. It pours a clear, dark shade of orange-yellow and has a thick white foam head. This reduces down to a thin ring with a light dust sprinkling on the surface. It leaves behind a light, fuzzy messy lace. The taste is a good balance between medium sweet and bitter. The medium bodied beer is fizzy with an oily, slick texture. The finish is primarily orange and caramel with a surprising amount of spice and a touch of resin. It’s crisp and dry with an aftertaste of lingering spice, pine, and wood chips. Very clean.

This is one of the beers that got me into seeking out a lot of new beer, and now here i am paying fucking $10 for a pint. Gee thanks. Anyways, a dark orange amber. Aroma is piney hops, taste is smooth caramel, mild bitterness and clean finish. A classic.

Christos (5889) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2014
(Brooklyn Lager) Bottle 355 ml at home , poured into a glass tankard, ABV 5.2% Clear body, deep golden orange in colour, with a thick soapy head, slightly off-white. Small but with a good retention, it leaves medium lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma, some caramel and peppery hints, with light floral notes. Taste of light caramel, hops, grass, some spices but can’t say exactly what. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Quite dry palate. Pretty good.

Zymurgeist2 (2364) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap at the Admiral’s Club in JFK. Sweet malt, orange blossom and soft perfume aromas. Pours a clear deep gold with slight amber hues. Full white head falls away to a wide collar and dusting across the top. Collar is of minuscule bubbles. Massive lacing down the glass. Taste is lemony and slight soap. Crisp and semi-dry. Medium-thin mouthfeel. There is an orange juiciness that pervades the back half of the taste. Excellent, but seems to lack the classic malt of the style.
