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."

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2007
355 ml bottle (5,2% abv). Small but dense off-white head over a bright, pale amber body. Nice hoppy nose along with dry malts and dry fruits. A little malty sweetness and a fair amount of bitter hops in the flavors. Not so mouthfilling as expected, a bit watery palate, but still an enjoyable and well-made lager.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
Clear golden-orange body and a sudsy white head. Sweet, lightly toasted biscuity malt nose and mild spicy hop notes. Flavor follows with a nice balanced malt and hop profile. Faintly buttery and lightly sweet with moderate bitterness. A fair session amber lager.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle - surprisingly good, considering the style. Amber to orange body with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma and a touch of spice hops. The flavor matches. Very nice!

Light orange in colour with average carbonation. Well balanced aromatics with lots of grassy and slightly citrusy hops mixing with a bit of both sweet and dry buscuity malts. Hops forward in the mouth with a nice grassy, spicy, and floral flavors... good firm bitterness too. The malt elements re-appear on the back end with a bit of light toast. Refreshing, but still has loads of character. One could win over a patio full of macro lager drinkers with this beer. Big thanks to pootzboy for the bottles.

Bottle. So it’s nice that the LCBO is carrying this as a regular item. I’ve had it a number of times since it’s release about 3-4 months ago. Pours a shimmering clear copper body with a large foamy white head slowly receding. Pleasing aroma consisting of mild grain sweetness and fruity, kind-of leafy hops. Solid body structure with bready type flavours up front and then leading into twangy hops. The finish is again a bit astringent and bready. A nice well-crafted brew to keep around.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2007
can from Greens in ATL. Honey aroma, with some citrus notes. Dark gold/orange color with a thin but steadt white head. Malty but still has a good hop presence, especially for a lager. At first I thought it was going to be so malty that it feels heavy? But then there is a sharp crisp flavor, either from the lager or the hops or both. Complex but still greatly refreshing, easy to drink in the Florida heat, if only we could get it down here!

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Dark, hazy golden-orange color. Thick, foamy, sticky off-white head. Sweet citrusy, grapefruit, caramel aroma. Flavors were nicely balanced between sweet malts, citrusy/grapefruity hops, caramel, and brown sugar. Soft, sticky mouthfeel that finishes very dry. Really good, well balanced, complex and interesting stuff.
