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."

Pours a deep tawny golden color. Thick, frothy head lasts a long time. Aroma of fresh hops greets the drinker (Cascades?). Wow! Very impressive lager! Well balanced malty to hops…maybe just a bit hoppier than expected. Reminiscent of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in style and flavor but better. The bottle calls this “The Pre-Prohibition beer.” If so, they knew what they were doing back then. It’s difficult to classify this beer to a particular style though. Definitely not a Pils and the hops are too evident for a Munich, Dortmunder or Vienna. Whatever it is, it is good. The amount of hops in this beer is on par with a fine American pale ale. Excellent job. I really enjoyed it.

bottle. Poured a light amber with a medium head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and pine notes. Flavor was a bit of caramel and hops.. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Nice drinkable lager. Light Amber color, clear, Med high carbonation, bitter finish and bubbly. Nice nose of grassy/floral hops, carmels, bit of nuts. Cross between a Sam Adams Lager and a Morlein OTR ale. Well done.

Pours light copper with frothy, here and then gone, just off white head. Smells like whole grains in the husk and taste very much like milled grains with a sugary tinge, reminds me of horse feed . Very raw flavors give way to a pleasing and full mouthfeel for the style. Lingering foul, stale aftertaste takes this rating down a bit. Pretty good though.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Dark amber beer with an off white head. Sweet caramel, floral aroma. Good hop flavour, nicely bitter with a light syrupy sweetness to balance it out. Quite full bodied for a lager, but good nonetheless. Great beer, much better than expected

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Pours a ruby color, with a mild malty aroma. With a hint of hops and soap smell. Above average overall, not a big lager fan, one of the better lagers I’ve had though. Worth a try.

355cc bottle. Pours amber clear with thin head. Some floral and resin hops on a slightly sweet caramely backbone. Finish is quite dry and bitter for a lager. Very nice surprise. It is not the typical lager. Thirs quenching and refreshing. Pairs nicely with light meals.
