BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.

Pours a light clear amber with a white head. Smells of caramel and malt. Tastes of slightly sweet caramel, malts, and bread. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a good red lager.

12 oz bottle in NJ.
Deep amber color with a tall, frothy white head that has good retention. This lager has more flavor than most, primarily due to the generous malt load. The malts also lend some additional sweetness.
Overall: recommended version of style.

Looked like a good beer in the glass. We had it on tap at the airport in New York before flying out. What a dissapointment. A flat taste to add to the dullness of the JFK airport experience.
