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."

Sweet malt, bittered caramel malt. Some floral hops peek through on nose. Good looking amber with a white ring and splashy lacing. Looks like a lager that wants you to drink the shit out of it. Taste is really simple malt driven and delicious. Some hops come in to add balance quick and citrus. Great lager.

Pours deep amber with medium white head. Nose is citrusy. Aromas are sweet malts, citrus, white flowers and some caramel. Lively cabronation, light body. Medium dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable American lager.

Love the label but cant say exactly the same for the bottles content. Budweiser style beer with slightly more flavor. Pours a pale color with thin white head that quickly thins out. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a bad beer just not as good as I had hoped.

Bottle. L: pours a slightly orange gold, clear, small head. S: nice malt and honey sweetness, mixed with a grassy herbally hop. T: great taste, good malt body, herbally finish, sweet and floral. F: balanced from start to finish, nicely carbonated, lingering mild hop rising up. O: always my go-to lager. I love Vienna/Amber lagers and this has plenty going on whilst being easy drinking and refreshing.

Compared with the all star American water "Bud" is this Brooklyn Lager a brew of the gods! This is a real fine beer! God taste, sweet aroma and it takes you over the finish line with a long aftertaste!

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is caramel malt. The taste is the same with a nice balance of hops and bread. It’s smooth with some carbonation. There’s some bitterness on the back end. This is a good lager.

Poured from bottle. Light hoppy taste. Not a lot of taste, but hoppy and Vienna lager-ish nodes
