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."

Graham77 (515) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Aroma sweet, bready and hoppy. A really full bodied and flavoured lager with a slightly resinous quality. Good head retention. Really good lager, the highest score (equal) I have ever given a lager. Re rate: second tasting not as good as first. Slightly overly bitter for a lager, still full flavoured and robust. Adjust score to 3.5 from 3.6.

Perfect blend on malt and hops for a lager and is one of the most refreshing lagers I’ve ever had. I could easily drink a sixer of this on a night.

Healthy aroma of pine and citrus. Very orange and cloudy with good head. Taste of pine and sweet orange with a slightly bitter finish. Palate is medium body with good carbonation. Overall, this is a very refreshing lager, orange in both color and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rarbring (2290) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2013
Aroma: Sweet notes in the smell, honey, caramel, biscuits and citrus fruits. Oranges and mandarins.
Appearance: A clear amber brew, hints of orange, an off-white head leaving some lacing.
Taste: Upfront sweetness, honey cereal notes, citric tones, the bitterness is somewhat "chemical" and sharp.
Palate: Medium to low carbonation, a rather simple body, a short dryness.
Overall: Well, it looks and smells good, but I’m not 100% into the taste and feel. Miss a solid bitterness, the sweet tones remains behind the bitterness, which actually makes me more thirsty.
Note: Bottle 355 ml. Reviewed 2010-08-22.

LasseVPedersen (453) - 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.
