Brooklyn Lager

Billed on the label as "The Pre-Prohibition Beer", Brooklyn Lager is brewed by the Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn, New York.  It's sold in 355mL bottles and contains 5.2% alcohol.  It pours a barely hazy copper colour with ample carbonation and a cloudy white head.  B.L. has a strong, warm malty aroma. The flavour moves from sweet to bitter and has a bready body with slight caramel notes. The aftertaste is doughy and reasonably bitter.
Brooklyn Lager is a really robust lager with tonnes of character.  It's flavourful, interesting, and full of good luck.  As a vehement hater of the New England Patriots, I was sure to buy a New York brew to support the Giants in Superbowl XLVI.  I'm not saying that Brooklyn Lager made the G-men upset the Pats, but it sure didn't hurt.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
