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." World Classic brew!
The aroma is malty and sweet. When poured, releasing a nice orangy copper lager with a big white long lasting head and lots of lacing.
The taste is more like an IPA than a lager which is clean, crisp and refreshing.
Review: On pouring this lager into a glass I wondered if the yanks had got things wrong, as the colour was that of a pale or light ale rather than a lager. On tasting however, I ceased to care, it was delightful. It is of medium body, and has a lovely zesty aftertaste that lingers on the palate a while, I suspect cascade hops but cannot confirm this. On the whole, this lager was a gem of a find, I will be drinking it again in the near future. Cheers!

Review: The Best lager I have tried for sometime,it is almost as good as Michelob Teardrop lager which unfortunately is no longer available in this country for some strange reason however it is a very close second. Cheers!
