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."

Big on the malt (as advertised) which had me pleased, it was also nice to see the respectable hop profile presented here. Strong floral hops help balance a semi-sweet, doughy malty flavor. This beer will not blow your mind, but it is a highly enjoyable lager, and reasonably priced and widely available to boot.

Dark enough to pass for a pale ale. Tastes almost like a PA as well. Delicate malty flavor with a nice helping of hops. Great lager.

A very nice lager coming from N.y. This beer makes me think of fond memories of me wanting to run nude beond the fall air of the woods where I can swim for hours in the creeks and springs. Damn that’s a nice lager.

Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, thin, quite stable foamy head;sweet-malt in the nose with a tinge of liquorice and a quite strong hoppy aroma; moderate to strong bitter flavour, medium bodied: moderate malty and long aromatic bitter finish. Very pleasant and spicy....!

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2006
(bottle, 1 month past the BB-date) Hazy amber coloured effervescent hue with a short, slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty and sweet buttery, resiny Bohemian-like malty aroma with herbal and slightly floral hops. Aromatic bitter hoppy flavour, crispy mouthfeel, well-bodied and balanced malty base with a slightly fruity and floral hoppy taste; quite dry and spicy bitter finish with an aromatic hoppiness. Rather inexperienced with American beers I find it very quaffable.

Draught at the sunset grill 7/30/06. Pours a dark copper/brown color with a small fizzy head. Head receedes to nothing. Nose is grainy and malty with some nice earthy notes. Palate is full and grainy with some tingly bubbles. Flavors are grainy and corny with some earthy light hop notes and a sticky finish.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours a clear copper with a frothy ivory head. Light lacing. Smells of grassy malt and light citrusy hops. Grassy malt and bitter hops. Light fruitiness from the malt. Persistent low level herbal hops. Lightly sticky mouth and long longering bitterness. Pretty good stuff.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 25, 2006
(Bottle from Julio’s Liquors) Pours a deep amber with about 2’’ of biscuit head that drops to about 1/4". Good-looking beer. Aroma is quite hoppy - flowery and fruity. Mouthfeel quite smooth and full. Decent lacing. Initially has quite a more flowery and less fruity hop taste, very much like an IPA. Remains quite hoppy and bitter but some caramel begins to emerge. Bitter finish. Gosh this seems like an IPA, curious to know why they made it so hoppy. A good beer nonetheless.
