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."

Light amber color, with modest head. More sour than bitter. IMO, less flavor than Boston Lager.

wedgie9 (2664) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Tasted on 7/13/11 on draft at Whole Foods Lincoln Park. Pours clear bright orange with a thin white head that recedes to thin even lace and a decent collar. The nose is malty bread with some earthy yeast, and just a hint of green hops. The flavor is lightly sweet bread malt up front with lightly earthy yeast, and more bitter hops than I expected given the nose. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium bitter hops and sweet bread finish.

355ml bottle in New York City. Pours dark golden with a medium white head. Taste and aroma are very fresh and crisp, highly floral hops, some bread, spicy. Palte is pretty smooth, a refreshing Vienna lager.

thirstyrabbit (1784) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2012
355 ml bottle. Amber body, small head. Mildly hoppy and toasty aroma. Taste is caramelly with a notable toasty bite. The generous hop use makes it different from the European Vienna lagers that Ive had.

floydian1 (1410) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Copper brown pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste is toasted sweet malts with light floral hops. Palate is smooth and drinkable with just the right amount of carbonation. Uncomplicated but well crafted and very sessionable.

pour rich golden with a decent but collapsing foam, quite active carbonation. The aroma is hoppy with some malty bready notes and this one goes down easily. the flavour is subtle malt with some hop highlights..
