One of my go-to beers for when people come over. Pours a nice deep yellow, almost orange with a white head that trails the glass. The smell has a nice balance of hop and malt with some light caramel scents. The taste is very refreshing with the malt in the beginning and then a finish of clean hops. Very refreshing and a great beer for any time of year.

I've been on Beer Advocate for 8 years now, but I have a confession to make; I have never had a Brooklyn Lager in my life! Living in California, I cannot find Brooklyn products, and I haven't been on the East Coast in six years. Why I choose Biermarkt Von Fass in Porto Alegre to pop my Brooklyn Lager cherry only Vishnu knows. On-tap (R$16.90 for 300 ml), on to the beer:

Brooklyn Lager is a dark amber colored lager, topped with a creamy head and outstanding retention. The aroma is clean, brings quick citric and toffee aromas to smell. With a taste, I learned how Brooklyn Brewery got its groove. This lager is not only with flavor, but is clean, light, and easy drinking. Highlighting the tasting notes are graham cracker, light fruits, and citrus. The beer is balanced as well. If I had access to this beer, Brooklyn Lager may even join my drinking rotation.

such a good beer. finger and a half head. Amber color head lasts throughout whole time but eased down to quarter inch. good lacing throughout. malty. little dry. smooth as hell. little bit of a hop bite. medium feel. I loved this. f or people who never had this it's like closer to a less intense Sam Adams I could drink this all the time
