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."

acearl (396) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2013
12oz bottle, darkish yellow hue, diminishing white head, no lacing, smells a little clove like but not too much of taste, tastes a bit of banana and sour, a touch sweet, overall a good lager, don’t love the brewer but maybe their inherent taste fits well with this style, serviceable in a pinch, probably a good session beer albeit at 5.2

HippyHop (307) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Pour is light caramel with a fluffy white cap that sticks around nicely. Nose is honey and grain and faint flowers. There’s nothing complex here, but this is a really nice, clean, drinkable lager, with a nice bit of bitterness on the finish.

JimmyBoy74 (299) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2015
355 cl systembolaget. Känns märkligt att folk ger denna ganska trista öl så högt betyg.

Astograph (6) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a fast white head, small bubbles. Light aromas of hop and honey, strong aromas of malt and earth. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness, followed by a perfect dry finish. Wonderful beer.

Shain (97) - ISRAEL - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle, 330ml. Pours light brown, clear, with a short light head. Aroma is gentle: white whine, lightly hoppy and slight malt. Body is medium-light with soft carbonation but a strong tang. Mouth feel is slightly oily to watery, but not too thin. Tastes slightly sour, bu pleasantly so, slight sweetness and light hoppy bitterness, very well balanced. Flavors of light malt and strong american hops, herbal, lightly bitter, and quite citrucy. The sweet-sour-bitter flavors are playing well together, keeping each sip interesting and fresh tasting. The beer is refreshing, but not too light, it’s complex flavor prevents it from being drunk too quickly.

Franzen (366) - SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Floral aroma, bit honeylike sweet. Malty bready, bit sweet floral taste, bit of viola. The sweetness is well balanced with a noticeble firm bitterness. Dry and refreshing
