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."

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 Re-rate based on can sent by Ty5592. Hazy coppery body, thick, puffy off-white head. Toasty nose with sharp herbal hops. Bitter, bready body, with sharp herbal, spicy hops complementing toasty, sweet malts. Long, bitter, somewhat metallic finish. Certainly much better this time around than my first sample on tap.

On tap at Loganís Alley, Grand Rapids. Blonde-golden body, thin off-white head. The aroma and body were biscuity, toasty, and cerealy, with abundant buttered breads (diacetyl notes) and an earthy hops finish. This was relatively fresh beer but seemed rather stale and bland. Iím not impressed. 5-3-5-2-9 (2.4).

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Clear copper brew. Frothy head that lingers. Nose is mostly green hops and lots of em. Unmistakably dryhopped. Very chunky bitterness in the nose. Malt are absent. Carbonation is very apparent. Flavors are interesting for a vienna. Not hardly any malt sweetness mostly hoppy green goodness.As the beer warms more sweetness shines through. Very honey-ish with a bitter hop edge. As per style...I donít know. As per beer....pretty decent

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a translucent amber with an average light tan fluffy head. Aroma was a nice floral and citrus hop with a caramel malt balance. Flavor was malty with a light hop mix. Flavor was solid but a step down from the aroma. A very solid lager though.

Bottle, from sampler pack. Very good lager. Nice and hoppy & malty at the same time. Very well balanced.
