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."

Clear, amber appearance, under a slim, but sturdy speckled white head. Creamy, malty nose, quite attractive...soft and flowery, pleasant esters from yeast (?)... I like it. Taste: smooth, clean, crisp, malty. Light bodied, but nicely textured, good grit, tight balance, tidy hops meet copious malt. A streamlined beauty, full of flavor. Blend of fruit associations chimes in, some apple, melon, grape, mixed with grain. Quite a classy lager, this one, damned good. Almost ale-like in itís display of flavors. Just goes to show what happens when a lager is done well! Can be drunk without disappointment, and no end in sight for the taste. Very, very nice!

This is a decent beer, but not worth the price I paid. It has a light amber color, sweet aroma, and a light crisp taste. It has a sweet taste on the front of the tongue, a clean bite in the finish, and no aftertaste to speak of. Itís a decent beer, but nothing to write home about.

On tap, this is an all around good and easy to drink beer. Well balanced with a decent amount of hops, has a slight honey taste. Pretty good lager from a great brewery

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2006
Bottle (from Tesco, BB Oct 06). Copper coloured. Slightly floral hops against firm maltiness with a slight toasted grain feel. The graininess wouldnt work well in some beers but is well integrated here. Dry and quaffable with refreshing hop finish.

This is a lager, but reminds me more of an ale or even a mild IPA. Pours to a golden copper color, with thin, diminishing cream-colored head, and okay lacing. Aroma is citrus fruit, and floral hoppiness. Taste follows along the citurs fruit, predominantly grapefruit, and some floral, rose petal. Finish is somewhat dry, slightly bitter, but long lasting. Iím impressed with this beer.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Pours a goldish-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted and sweet malts, and caramel. Flavor is very much the same with a sweet malt and caramel finish that lingers. The flavor of the floral hops and the malts blend together very nicely. Not my style of beer but I do enjoy this brew.

12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is very toasty and sweet. Fresh malt with a lovely floral hop aroma. Slightly perfumey. Some sweet caramel. Very fresh and toasty malts. Floral hops with a soft but insistent bitterness. Iím surprised I havenít had this before, but Iím more surprised by how good it is.

Bottle, 355ml. A copper-coloured pour with a small lasting head. Strong aromas of hops and citrus. Tastes very alcoholic, with hops, citrus and caramel. A nice hoppy, bitter, somewhat fruity finish with some acidity. Average carbonation. Pretty good.

tap. outside of madison square garden where the Celtics put a whooping on the highest paid, and worst team in the NBA. This beer represents the people of New York. I say it represents them well. It is revolting in just about every way. Iíll take a coors please. Do you guys remember when the Sox came back from 3 down?
