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."

Bottle. Amber to slightly darker. A thick dense off-white head with an almost greenish tinge. A massive whack of citrus-y hop aroma. Some malt up front with a hoppy, very bitter finish which almost tastes a little burnt. A good beer but perhaps not one I could have too many of in a session.

Dorqui (2233) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 9, 2010
Draught at Oliver Twist (Stochkolm).
Orange clearly color with reddish reflex. Compact and homogenous head, discreet resistance. Pleasant aroma with wood notes, banana, stum. Decidedly bitter taste but altogether balanced, pleasant and of optimal duration.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nrresundby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice filtered amber/orange color with a big frothy white head. Aroma is filled with caramel and a slight amount of hoppy bitterness. Not a complex aroma at all, as with most lagers. The flavor has a solid malty backbone, with alot of caramel malts. On top of that you also get a decent amount of floral hops, and a clean hop bitterness in the finish. The body is medium and slightly creamy. Overal this is a really good lager, that is very similar to the Samuel Adams Boston Lager. But i think i prefer this one.

mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours nice, clear honey-ish amber with visible carbonation. One-finger white head. Nose was somewhat lacking- got a brief hoppiness that disappeared quickly leaving just a little malty note. Medium body. Nice little bit of hop bitterness but sweet malts dominate through a crisp finish. Definitely a good beer if Im in the mood for it, but I just think its not really my style.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Light amber, frothy head. Surprising aroma of lightly grassy hops - probably because of the balance with the malt. Taste is slightly toasty malt and pine hops. Finish is a great bitterness. Its a good lager.

mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Tap at the Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, NY. Pours a dark golden orange with a big head. Aroma of sweet toasted malt and nuts. The taste starts off super sweet with notes of nuts and apricots roll into a slightly tinny/metallic finish. Fairly light bodied with medium carbonation. A nice lager, but east to get burned out on this after a few.

AlbertC (277) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2010
Aroma is dough, barnyard, sweet flowers/fruits and some hops. Taste is dough, malts, some caramel malts and finishes off bitter and slightly metallic. Overall a robust, fresh, flowery yet malty lager.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Poured from my home tap, the appearance is a deep yellow-amber color and a thick, creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor are hop-forward, with prominent notes of grapefruit and grass, but there is also a substantial caramel malt backbone. The mouthfeel also seemed off-style, with a much more resinous texture and little of the crispness I expected (and desired) from a lager. Overall, it was different, interesting, and quite unexpected, but it was just too far from what I was looking for in a good lager.

355 mL bottle from Noble Green Wines poured into a Karmeliet glass. Dark orange lager with a well formed head. Smells nice, pleasantly hopped. This is pleasant, and not like the lagers Im used to in Europe. Id be quite happy to have this again, but it might be too dry to have a few pints of.
