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."

PlainsDrifter (96) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Pours a dark brown amber with a large frothy tan head. Coffee and caramel malt, with some aroma of leaves. Some floral hops and soy sauce aroma as well. Strong malt flavor with a light hop bite at end. This is a flavorful and drinkable lager. Very good.

LED40 (124) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2018
Poured from a can straight from the fridge. Is a copper/amber colour with a thick milky white head. The taste is quite complex for a lager, with a medium hop background with nuts and smoke upfront but not to the extent that it is overpowering. The overall flavour is nicley rounded with nothing overpowering and individual flavour note. The carbonation is light to medium and the palate is velvety and smooth leading to a highly sessionable drink that for the style is memorable.

tmoreau (4805) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2018
On tap at Ellyn's Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and shaker served showing a clear, amber color, a presentable layer of soft white froth, with wavy spray as lacing. The nose was soft grain, subtle toast, some sweet malt, and light hints of flora, fruit, & spice. Medium bodied, the taste was similar notes, while carbonation was decent, and hop bitterness was modestly earthy, peppery, and slightly dry on the finish. Nicely drinkable.

macca147 (829) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2018
On tap. Pint. Pours a pale and clear straw gold with a white head. Straw, grass and funky notes. Straw, mild citrus, sweet malt and grassy flavours. Thin bodied. Medium to high carbonation. Easy drinking. Decent but not interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2018 Lovely pint, how a larger should be. Crisp and easy drinking but with a satisfying depth of flavour and nice aftertaste

3.4
Zilverenmaan (336) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2018
Poors slightly oily coppery with decent white head and lacing. Aroma like a lager, faint sweet malts, hops. Taste: Excellent balance between caramel malts and fruity hops. Adtertaste softly bitter but pleasant and lingering. Rather thin tasting but very refined.

Hopper8 (279) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 I was actually kinda bored by this lager. I don’t mind a good Vienna lager, but this one seemed to try and showcase its malts and hops separately instead of as a whole which kind of hurt the overall.

julesxxl (518) - Cholet, FRANCE - JAN 16, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 (nez frais très floral & houblonné, pamplemousse, assez équilibrée (sur clémentine-litchi), verdure, cool for canicule)

2.9
biilz (310) - SPAIN - JAN 13, 2018
Запах в основе солодовый, с легким оттенком груши и яблока. Цвет слегка бледный лагер, пена тонкая, белая. Вкус очень солодовый, имеется легкая фруктовая горчинка. Но само по себе пиво весьма посредственное на вкус.

3.2
ChrisOfstad (471) - Hamar, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 On draft at The Three lions lounge at Wembley. Dark golden with big white head. Malts and hops. Nice

3.1
Gaultier (1914) - SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2018 @ Bjällerödsvägen 4/1-18. Can from Systembolaget. Fruity with hops, also caramel, malt and notes of citrus. Body is medium, the finish is dry with notes of malt and caramel.
