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."

Bought a growler of this yesterday, and drinking it today. A very good beer, one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to drink. Hoppy, as you would expect, yet very smooth, good drinkability! Love this stuff!!

Brooklyn Lager is not a classic lager, that makes people think about a boring commercial pale lager. It’s lager in the way is made. It pours golden/orange, minimal head. Floral hops aroma, with notes of caramel and citrus. Body is well balanced between maltiness (caramell, bread) and hops (floral, piney, dry). Easy to drink, perfect with a pizza, as I did, bitter finish.

330ml bottle. Nice amber-golden colour, fine white lager head, this is my imagine of right foam. Malty aroma, there is caramel and bitter aromas too. Flavour of starting bitters, continue some caramel, citrus and hoppy aromas and finnishing with bitterness and floral feels. Congrats US! Very good lager style beer!

Ljusgul med fint skum. Doftar malt och lite humligt. Smaken välbalanserad med finstämda malttoner. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång med fin beska. God.

07/10/16 at a Brooklyn event, Wine Rack, West Byfleet. When this was rolled out realised the event may be less interesting than I thought it would be. Light sweet hoppy/malty aroma. Medium amber. Frothy white head. Bitter, hoppy. Sweet finish. Soft, lighy bodied.

Bottle @ home with Muts51. Aroma is quite bland and doesn’t give much away about the beer. Looks clear but a bit cloudy with an amber colour, no head. Taste is quite bitter and not particularly outspoken otherwise. Quite heavy for a lager though. Overall, very unexciting but not bad either.

Nice bottle but without detail information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature on the labels. Cloudy amber beer with a very nice cream-colored head, heavy bitter, the first smell is fruity, medium body, oily, light caramel and roasty, hops are dominated, long finish, very good, (I have 0.355l bottle)
