COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

One of my favorites. This is for me was the epihany of lagers. I remember when I was 19 first tasting this and saying, "wow!" Really enjoyable, truly a everyday beer - great with many foods....simply put -> buy a case and never be disappointed.

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!!

almost IPA instead of a lager but the fact that almost every place in NYC has this one on draft makes me (almost) want to move to USA.

This is a fantastic beer. Brooklyn’s best, and that’s saying something. Quite possibly the best lager brewed in the United States

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 This is American, but rather delicious. Quite exquisite: perfumed, fruity, sweet, bitter. One of my favourite beers, but seems to have disappeared from here. Wretched shame.

This lager is absolutely gorgeous to behold with its amber shade and soapy, pure head. It’s also loaded with flavor, thanks to a bold burst of crisp hops. Sweet maltiness tempered by a fresh hoppiness. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this beer.

First time I tasted this one was in Loebs Boat House, Central Park, New York. After this visit it has become one of my favourite lagers. A must taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This accurate lager was my first introduction to craft beer. The Hoppy aroma and well balanced bitterness/sweetness make it my first recommendation for any new comers to specialty beer.

This is one of the best Lagers on the market. It is consistently smooth and flavorful while packing more of a punch than most beers in this category. It is as full bodied as a beer of this style can be and it works great.
