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."

I enjoyed this on draft in Manhattan, and was really pleasantly surprised. The aroma was not too exciting, mostly grainy/earthy hops with a touch of caramel malt. A good appearance, a very dark rust color with a creamy, tan head. The flavor was quite good, hoppy and mostly bitter, but had some sweet aspects as well. I was very impressed with this type of palate from a lager. It was quite creamy and smooth, but still had ample carbonation, very well done. Overall, it exceeded my expectations and I would like to have it again.

35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep orange, clear, with a slight off-white head. Fruity hops aroma, slight caramel malt. Malty flavour, slight roasted with a minor bread like note. Fruity and bitter hops join in a bit later, given a rather dry flavour into the finish with a minor refreshing fruity note. Slight soapy mouthfeel/flavour.

Light amber color. Smell of malt, hops, flowers and some pepper. Taste of hops, pepper, citrus, flowers and malt. Refreshing and not that bad.

Very nice. Floral hops and malty aroma. I swear I can smell some orange notes. Medium mouth with a nice bitter finish.

I love this beer! I’m partial to Lagers and Pils yet I do enjoy the extra character a pale ale has....this beer is the perfect beer for me! Full flavour, beautiful head for a lager that melts away into a nice cover that laces the glass all the way down....nice caramel color. Taste is full, feel is nice and it leaves a sparkle on your tongue. This along with Christoffel Blond are my 2 favorites amongst the beers I can get in my region. This is a nice step above Sams and IMO much better than Urquell or Czechvar. Highly recommend!

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 On tap at Beerbistro. I don’t really like lagers, but maybe I’ve just drank the wrong kind. Nice hoppy aroma, and a taste of hops, fresh fruit and malt. Very pleasant. I’ve since bought a couple of bottles at the LCBO and it worked well paired with a thai red curry.

In glass on tap. Excellent lager. This has some character to it with a rich golden hue and pleasant hop aroma. A touch more thickness than many lagers with a good balance. Recommended.

Finally some charcter in a lager. Nice head that stays with the brew. Goldish color and clear. Nice hop smell, crisp and fresh at the back of the mouth.

12 oz can. Another of my "I haven’t rated this yet???" beers. Golden brown with a huge off white head that disintegrates rockily. Rather hoppy nose - citrus and grass, sweet malt. Light to medium bodied, the sweet maltiness comes through in the flavor, well balanced by floral and grass flavors. Some dry bread notes. Very flavorful, damn pleasant.
