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."

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2006
Small white coarse-laced head shrinks to a thin white ring. Hazy light brown body. Sweet, fruity, caramelly aroma with strong citrus hop profile. Malty, bitter taste, somewhat watery. Bitterness with fruity notes lingers. A very good, and quite untypical, dark lager.

Brooklyn Lager pours to a beautiful deep golden color with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this is very nice with a good balance of grassy and citric hop aromas and crisp and biscuit like malt aroma. Brooklyn Lager is hopped with both Hallertau and Cascade hop varieties. The palate is firm with some good pale malt flavor, a touch of malt sweetness, and a clean and smooth body. Three malts go into this beer including 2 row pale, caramel, and carapils. Brooklyn Lager finishes with more crisp and biscuity malt flavor up front, then ends with a grassy, citric bitter hop bite, that balances this beer out very nicely. This is a well done lager that is brewed from a pre-Prohibition lager recipe. Its not my favorite craft golden lager on the market, but this beer, like all Brooklyn products is rock solid.

This beer pours a sweet reddish amber color, and leaves a thin white head that disappates quickly. The smell is very malty with caramel aspects that give hints of honey and lemon. The taste of this lager is crisp and refreshing the sticky sweet malt weighs on your palate in a good way and there is a lemon wheat flavor on the palate that makes this a balanced refreshing brew to drink all day def session quality.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Bottle. Bought by accident, surprisingly pleasant. hoppy citrust aroma, hoppy flavor. very interesting for a lager. Then again itís not your usual cheap lager w/ adjuncts. good for it. there is stll some unpleasant bottom fermenting "tin" flavor to it, but good for something billed as lager... itís even coppery with a nice head and some lacing

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a thick off-white head that lingers awhile. A nice hoppy floral/citrus scent. Similar flavor, with more hops than most lagers, hints of yeast and maybe a very vague maltiness, and a dry, rather bitter finish of grapefruit hops. Medium to light body, but slightly too carbonated. Overall not a bad lager.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2006
I wasnít real enamored with this selection; however, lagers are probably my least favorite style, so that may be why. A clear golden pour with an off-white head. A hint of a floral in the nose and some wood on the palate. Also a dry character and a hair too much carbonation. It may be a better selection for the summer.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark, hazy orange with off-white head. Flowery hoppy lager aroma. Flavors are mostly flowery/grass/straw, with malts sort of taking a backseat. Hints of yeast and hops. Satisfying lager, but too low on the malts.

bottle. Poured a light amber with a medium head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and pine notes. Flavor was a bit of caramel and hops.. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.
