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."

nice fresh bottle for the first time, after only having had stale bottles a couple of times years ago. smells like a cask bitter - sulfur and flowers with crystal malt. pleasant biscuitty malt, quite long on palate, with salty, substantial flowery bitterness. some fruitiness in aftertaste. tastes much more like an ale than a lager, but a good ale. quality session beer. i could drink a lot of this stuff.

Dark amber with tiny head. Aroma is light malty with fruity notes. Flavor has fruit and caramel notes with a mild hoppy end.

Pours amber with tight, white, lasting head. Caramal malt and floral aroma maybe honey too. Pleasant on the palate with the full malt, brown sugar flavour and enough bitterness to carry it. Simple but not too simple. It’s hard to find good american beer in shops in the UK and in the abscence of good APAs, this lager can work as a less hoppy alternative.

dpjuart (1094) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2008
12 oz.bottle. Pours Amber with moderate off white head with good lacing. Nice lager malt nose, a touch of caramel and some slight earthen hops. Good malt character, caramel with some fruity esters. Clean, crisp hop finish with little to no after. A well done lager. Tasty and highly drinkable.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Slight sweet malted nose. Amber yellow in color with a decent white head. Dies quickly. Crisp and frothy on the tongue. Long dry ending hangs around a while. Brooklyn seems to specialize on this.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is very sweet and bready with some honey, grain, caramel, and subtle hop aroma. Flavor has a very sweet/grainy mix thing going on with some light summer fruit and honey. Hop flavor is mild with a lighter mouthfeel that is pleasant, if boring. Decent for what it is, but this one has never really done it for me.

bottle - Pours clear light amber with a thin, white head that sticks around and laces well. There’s a sweet malt aroma with a hint of fruit esters. The taste has a good hops balance to go with the pale malt. There’s a refreshingly bitter finish. Brooklyn Lager is a very solid session brew.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Poured a nice copper color. Modest off-white head that dissipated completely. Decent lacing. Aroma is a nice, modestly hopped caramel malt. Refreshing. Flavor is malty, nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. A slight hint of butter and a slightly astringent aftertaste. This lingering astringency which is so often present in Ambers and Brown ales is why I don’t enjoy these beers more.
