BROOKLYN – BROOKLYN LAGER

BROOKLYN BREWERY

BROOKLYN LAGER

Review by Rob

BROOKLYN SAYS…

In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centres in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favourites.

Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in colour and displays a firm malt centre 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 flavourful 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.

THE TASTE

THE VERDICT

If you’re out in a pub and they have Fosters, Carlsberg or Carling on tap, and this in the fridge, drink this as your only disappointment will be its Coca Cola sized can. As far as lagers go, recommended.
