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."

355 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Amber colour, large foamy head. Very nice flowery and fruity sweet aroma. Flavour is somewhat less interesting, some toffee, nuts and dusty hops. Bitter finish.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Unexpected. Aroma is sudden and unexpected as soon as i open the bottle, floural hops and grapefruit. Taste is similar with enough malt to balance it out nicely making this a very drinkable and enjoyable, what i would call pale ale rather than lager. Wetherspoons now sell it so winner all round.

I bought this beer on the recommendation of my liquor store owner, and have regretted the decision ever since. Unbalanced hops, an unenjoyable bitterness, and a watery palate combine to render this beer virtually undrinkable.

Nice carmel color and a sweet white head fill the eyes while the powerful dry hopped aroma fills your nose with joy.

Deep rich color for being a lager. Rocky offwhite head. Hoppy aroma springs out of the glass. Drinks more like an ale than a lager. Smooth maltiness with a goodly amount of hops. One of the better lagers Iíve sampled.

thedm (5155) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 30, 2005
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of light brown colored foamy fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated caramel brown colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was mildly malty and the mouth feel was mild with a tingly smooth start. The flavor was mild and slightly off with sweet malty notes.

hotstuff (4406) - Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Bottle. Poured a small sized off-white head that was creamy and smooth, small, medium and large sized bubbles, sparse lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a copper hue. Malty, caramel, hoppy, and sweet nose. Flavor was malt, caramel and hops. Smooth palate. Light-medium body.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle. Pours golden amber, a little darker than expected for the style. Fresh hops and sweet malt on the nose. Medium-light body, flavors of citrusy hops and buiscuity malt; dry, crisp finish. Doesnít have the smooth texture of some lagers, and I donít know if Iíd identify it blindly as a lager. Drinks more like a light American pale or amber. Iím consistently pleased with Brooklyn, and this is a tasty take on the style.
