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."

This beer should be labeled as an IPL as the hops over-power the other wise appropriate aroma and taste of a lager. Definitely not a Vienna style beer. Once I got past the fact that this tasted and smelled like an extremely hoppy IPA, this is a very nice beer. The color was nice coppery but had the look of a hefeweizen with yeast apparent in suspension.

Pours a nice pale amber with fluffy off white head. Aromas are somewhat vinous, fruity, like a light barley wine. Flavors are roasty, slightly nutty, caramel, plus light hop bitterness that lingers. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, making it easy to drink. Considerably more interesting than I expected.

35,5 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours almost golden clear with a small white head. Aromas of malts and hops. Taste is medium bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Good lager from Brooklyn.

Decent brew with a moderate amount of hops, some body and certainly a solid take on the style. If pricing has a part to play, this is also a plus...

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a foamy head. Aroma is of malts and a hint of caramel. Taste is hops and malts. One of the nicer lagers around.

TheKernOwl (33) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
- Look: Copper - Nose: Hint of toffee; tiny hint of roast coffee grounds. - Body: Nice amount of hop upfront, then mild lager malt. - Finish: crisp but not-too-dramatic English-bitter style end. Slightly more herbal than Brooklyn East India Pale Ale. - Decent, non-too-dramatic, copper brew that is possibly more Viennese or English bitter than evocative of Brooklyn, let alone lager! Nice #1001Beers

Color naranja oscuro, con poca espuma. Aroma a cebada. Sabor en donde predomina la malta, con un pequeño toque amargo al final. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
