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."

Hmmm. Didn;t enjoy this one as much as some of the other raters. Seemed pretty middle-of-the-road unremarkable to me. Amber in colr with a small whitish head. Definite bit of floral hops in the nose, along with a dose of malt. Flavor was largely toasted malt with a fairly well-balanced hop presence, but a grainy quality that I wasn’t crazy about. Not a bad beer, mind you, but unexceptional. A decent offering.

Slightly hazy orange, with a medium, white head. This tastes a lot like Sam Adams Boston Lager to me, but hoppier. I’m kind of curious how it’s classified as a Vienna in the ratebeers database. Especially when you consider how hop-forward this beer is. Very nicely blended hops and malts in the taste. An enjoyable brew.

pours clear amber with a fluffy off white head that lasts forever and leaves great lacing. visible carbonation. aroma balanced light toasted malt and hops. flavor sweet toasted malt with a bitter hoppy backbone. finish bitter hoppy and dry. light and slightly floral. light bodied crisp. nice balanced surprisingly hoppy lager.

bottle-thanks to vyvvy for the sample. pours medium orange with a small soapy white head. somewhat oxidized nose but just faint. mostly caramel malts, toasted with some sweetness from faiding hops? could be somewhat of an old bottle, but definately not past prime. flavors are lightly sweet, caramel, light cardboard, toasted grains-true to the style. really comes across pretty boring. maybe i need a fresh bottle. carbonation is ample and a little too much.

Bottle and draft. A nice crisp aroma and good appearance with a good foamy head and active appearance. Good flavor and well balanced. Very smooth.

CelticBrew (859) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Poured out a bit lighter amber, almost medium, aroma of hop flowers, spice. Taste of smooth hops, malts and alspice. Nice easy flavor. Not to bold, but not exactly boring. Pretty good lager, not like the mega brewer types.

mansquito (3572) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Got this beer because I had nothing better to do. Definately not an ordinary lager. Darker than a pale lager and much, much hoppier. Ultimately, it is a nice and hoppy beer, but of the three beers that I had at the time, this six pack was finished last. A good beer, but I would rather drink something else.

Trev (1962) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle: Pours a clear amber with a large foamy off white head that lasts for a bit and laces very well. Aroma is floral hop and a hint of honey backed up by a biscuit and caramel maltiness. Flavour has an assertive hop presence blending into a medium malty body and finishing with a nice lingering bitterness. Very tasty.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
Bright amber-orange coloru. Slightly chewy, caramelly aroma. Full body. Lightly toasty, hints of caramel. Clean. Fairly flavourful brew. Nothing terribly special in terms of either flavour or aroma but quite well executed and with enough body and nuance in its caramel/toast notes to keep things flowing. Nicely done.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - NOV 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 (Bottle BB 07/07; ABV 5.2%) Fruity (citrus), hoppy (flowery) and malty aroma. Amber colour, clear and small, white, very slightly lasting head with good lacing. Toffee malty, citrus fruity and moderately bitter flavour. Medium-bodied and softly carbonated palate. Good brew, which does not taste lager! 10/03/07 (original rating was 7/3/7/3/14)
