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."

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Off-white head is medium and bit heterogenous, leaves small lacing. Color is faintly hazy, yellowish copper. Aroma is very nicely bloomy hoppy, toffy and a bit berried. A bit berried flavor is sweety malty and very much flowery hoppy for a lager. Nicely bitter. Quite light-bodied and tingly carbonated palate.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2008
12 oz. bottle on 4/23/2008. Very attractive tawny amber body with a firm, well developed off white head that leaves behind some thick bands of lace. Maltiness in the aroma comes through as dark toffee and caramel, complemented by a distinctly floral hop aroma. Medium body with an effervescence to match, and a round, smooth mouthfeel. Fairly assertive bitterness for the style, but the malt base provides sufficient balance. Finishes nicely dry and fairly clean. Certainly one of the better Viennas, at the hoppy end of the scale for the style.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 15, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 Bottle. Pours amber, clear, with a two fingered off white head int a Sam Adams lager glass. Aroma is a bit of sweet malt mixed in with a nice hoppy floral aroma, though understated. Flavor is nice and basic: very drinkable balance of malt, caramel up front fading into a nice dry, hoppy bite at the end. Versatile, drinkable beer.
