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. World Classic brew! The aroma is malty and sweet pours a nice orangey copper with a big, long-lasting head and lots of lacing The taste is more like an IPA than a lager very clean crisp and refreshing.
