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."

Nice and malty, little to much grain taste on the back end but a solid Vienna lager.

Muggus69 (1362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
355mL can from Beer Cartel BB 16SEP15 Clean golden body, holds a white head. Low aroma, clean enough; floral hop, bit of spice, and grainy malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Moderately sweet grainy malts upfront, subtle floral spicy (Noble?) hops. Restrained bitterness, clean overall. Non-offensive, well made, not bad really.

Aroma of hops and floral. Appearance is a goldish orange with minimum head and lacing. First taste reminds me of ipa with a clean sweet aftertaste reminisce of a pilsner.

Pours a dark copper colour with not much head and minimal lacing. Sweet, grainy with a dry, light hop finish. Very flavourful lager, almost like a hopped pale ale.

One of my favorite lagers. I have drinking this beer since my restaurant days in Norfolk, Virginia in the mid 1980’s. A great full bodied lager with great color and taste as well.
