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."

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Pours a handsome copper body with thin white head. Nutty, malty aroma with subtle floral hop scents. Nice level of carbonation balances out sweet malt taste. Caramel notes, citrus and herbal taste with moderate bitters. Creamy smooth finish.

Pours a clear copper golden beer with a big foamy white head. Smells Hoppy, Malty, Flowery. Tastes malty, hoppy and a little bit piny. Tastes non alcoholic but has a big mouthfeel. Well saturated and really refreshing. Great lager!

I am not a typical lager person, but this was a good smoothe beer that went down nice a quick. This is definately your typical American Swill Lager. Good beer plain and simple

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Nice bready malt aroma with just hint of noble hops. Nice white head atop amber beer. Taste is towards sweet. Carmel and very, very light diacetyl present. Very light floral hop flavor. Seems to have a little bit of a fruity character. Enjoyable beer.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2011
It pours an amber color with a 1 finger off white head that quickly vanishes to a cap. It has a constant amount of carb and some tiny lacing. I get a pretty huge amount of floral notes on the aroma with some subtle carmel. The flavor is pretty malty for a lager. I get some good sweet carmel notes and some floral and some decent spices. A pretty well balanced offering. It finishes dry and with some lingering grassy notes. This is not your typical lager, but something better. A very drinkable session beer.

A very flavorful lager, clear gold color, dry aftertaste. What a good lager could and should be.
