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."

mansquito (5452) - 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 (2023) - 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 (15796) - 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)

Amber body wih some lasting off white head. Aroma is floral and hoppy with slight caramel malts. Nice bitterness at the front with a slight citrus and herb flavour before ending bitter and dry. Nice mouthfeel, full and fresh. A basic but well built beer.

Bottle 355 ml. Dark red body with a thick white/reddish head. Attractive floral and fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet malty, rather fruity and hoppy. This is one of the best lagers I ever tasted so far.

A bit smoky aroma with peppery maltyness. Light red colour, thick head. Foamy palate. Wonderful long finish with flowery hops. Tastes extremely German.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Lots of flowery hops and honey in the nose. Chewy amber body with a lasting blanket of suds. Caramel malt with a big spicy grapefruit hop finish. A wicked kick of rounded, lingering bitterness. Not dissimilar to Samuel Adams Boston Lager, and far too rich and tangy to be classified as a lager.
