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."

Beer poured a golden amber with thick white head. Aromas of hops, flowers. Tastes like caramel malt and hops. Touch of bread dough. Best lager beer I have ever had.

Draft...amber in color, strong hop taste, white head, this is one of Brooklyns best in my opinion. And a lager, no less.

Smells strongly of pleasant citrus hops. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Taste is refreshingly citrusy with a nice light feel to it. Tastes like a lagered pale ale. Fantastic.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 This beer is good, but what the heck is pre-prohibition about it? Pre-prohibition lagers are made from 6-row and corn, which this has neither. And they didnt use cascade hops, which dominate this beer. Good, but a big fat lie.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
I had this one at Shea Stadium, in a plastic cup. It had a big white head over a dark gold brew. The head up and left sip lines on the plastic cup. Well balanced hops and malt, neither too strong but had a full-bodied effect. A pleasant beer. It went down easy.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Nice deep amber pour with a thin off-white head. Mild floral hop aroma with some bread or yeast smells. Slightly hoppy with some notes of caramel malts. Pretty tasty overall and Id drink it again, but I wouldnt go out of my way to get it. Nothing special.

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
A - pours heavy and amber with a 2 finger head that lasted a while into a thickish film S - pale and caramel malt, biscuity and hoppy nicely done T - A malty lager with a very decent hop profile. Biscuity and even a bit of tang at the end. Refreshing and satisfying. MF - light bodied but full for the style, carbonation was decent large bubbles that are typical for lagers O - Better than the sum of its parts, a very good lager

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.
