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."

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
Clear golden-orange body and a sudsy white head. Sweet, lightly toasted biscuity malt nose and mild spicy hop notes. Flavor follows with a nice balanced malt and hop profile. Faintly buttery and lightly sweet with moderate bitterness. A fair session amber lager.

puboflyons (3123) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle with expiration date of Oct. 07. Pours a rich copper color but almost no head. Smell a hint of malts and a little fruity. Fresh and mild, not overpowering. Tastes a bit hoppy. An above average brew.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Poured from bottle to a lager glass a nice amber color - a nice dark amber for a American lager. Pours carbonated and with a decent head. You can smell the hops right after the pour, very hoppy. A little bitter on the palate but the taste is very consistent and smooth. Certainly at the top of my Lager list and probably my favorite Brooklyn.

Bottled. Clear pale amber with a thick white head. Flowers and oranges in the aroma with buttery undertones. malty flavour of bread and fudge with subtle aromatic hop notes of flowers. Mild spicy and grassy finish with floral undertones, hints of white bread and toffee.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 Bottle. Pours a amber gold body with a thin top. Aroma is pale malt, subtle fruits, and a moderate hop bittering aspect. Drinks pretty easy, with a strong hop kick to finish this one.

McGarnigle (624) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Bottle drink by Sept 08. Clear copper/amber, white head. Very flavorful lager, but like most Vienna lagers. Sweet malts are overwhelmed by hops. Floral and aromatic, but ultimately, citrusy and bitter. Cascade are used and come through (this isn’t too far off from an APA or Amber ale). Lots of bite and some pilsner-like scratchiness going down.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear red with a decent head. The smell is faint, a little spicy and malty. Tastes grassy, surprisingly because i didnt smell it at first. Nice grain malt flavor. Slight bitterness. Very smooth. Im defanatly going after seconds.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle. Wo! quite a nose here, strong piney hops (hints of celery here) quite intriguing. Taste is hoppy, pine pretty heavy for a lager.
