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."

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear orangey/copper with a small white frothy head and some nice visible carbonation. Aroma was malt dominant and slightly sweet with some earth notes of grass and dirt. Flavor was refreshing and smooth with some floral hops notes, a little sweetness and a malty aftertaste that lingered nicely. As far as lagers go this is one pretty darn good beer.

Pours darkish golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of caramel with some fruitiness. Nice palate, finishes a bit dry.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Poured from bottle to a lager glass a nice amber color - a nice dark amber for a American lager. Pours carbonated and with a decent head. You can smell the hops right after the pour, very hoppy. A little bitter on the palate but the taste is very consistent and smooth. Certainly at the top of my Lager list and probably my favorite Brooklyn.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2008
Bottled. Clear pale amber with a thick white head. Flowers and oranges in the aroma with buttery undertones. malty flavour of bread and fudge with subtle aromatic hop notes of flowers. Mild spicy and grassy finish with floral undertones, hints of white bread and toffee.

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Very crisp with a tiny bit more hops on the tongue then most logers, the smell reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston lager, but agin with just a bit more hops.

12 ounce bottle. Copper in color, white foamy head. Grapefruity and hoppy. It nice. I think I would like it more when it gets warmer out. Nice carbonation...just right. Lots of great flavor. Nice beer.

draft at the metro. nice mix of malt and hops. Good crisp lager, but nothing special.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
A dark amber colored lager with large bubbles and a medium beige frothy head. Great nose! Bready, some caramel malt, and hoppy aroma. O... its a vienna that makes more sense =p. Toasty, slightly burned, caramel malt flavor with a modest hop bit. Very sweet and bitter. Doesn’t come close to Eliot Ness in terms of character or balance. The malt is almost syrupy. Tastes like an English lager more than a Vienna.

Beer poured a golden amber with thick white head. Aromas of hops, flowers. Tastes like caramel malt and hops. Touch of bread dough. Best lager beer I have ever had.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Awesome brew, Had this at a beer tasting and really enjoyed it. Pours a deep but clear amber colour- fairly large head. Well balanced, nice touch of citrus fruit as well as hint of caramel. creamy texture with a long smooth hop finish.
