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."

Light amber color, with modest head. More sour than bitter. IMO, less flavor than Boston Lager.

wedgie9 (2639) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Tasted on 7/13/11 on draft at Whole Foods Lincoln Park. Pours clear bright orange with a thin white head that recedes to thin even lace and a decent collar. The nose is malty bread with some earthy yeast, and just a hint of green hops. The flavor is lightly sweet bread malt up front with lightly earthy yeast, and more bitter hops than I expected given the nose. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium bitter hops and sweet bread finish.

355ml bottle in New York City. Pours dark golden with a medium white head. Taste and aroma are very fresh and crisp, highly floral hops, some bread, spicy. Palte is pretty smooth, a refreshing Vienna lager.

Clear, amber honey coloured body with decent head. Soft maltiness in the taste with not a lot hops featuring, caramel notes not a lot else.

This is by far the best beer that is readily available at Shea Stadium (it’s still called Shea, not that Citi Field nonsense). You can actually taste the hops. Not the best beer ever, but oftentimes the best beer available at bars in New York.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a medium white head. Smells of caramel, malt and some flowery hops. Tastes a medium bitter with a medium sweet, but somehow feels like its missing something. Finishes dry bitter with a long duration. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation.

Clear light amber color with a decent head. The head settles to a lace around the glass. Smells very hoppy. A spicy floral hop. Has a firm malty body. Taste very hoppy but has enough sweet malts to go around. All round a good lager.

Nice, uncomplicated lager with a rather sharp hop character. Notes of flowers and citrus coming from the hops, and a crisp malt character make it satisfactory enough for long drinking sessions.
