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."

This beer pours a clear dark amber color with no head but does have some spotted laceing. The aroma is very floral and you get some hints of malt and hops. It has a nice initial bitterness which fades rather quickly. There is also some nice hints of fruit which you dont notice untill about 3 or 4 sips. The palate is very smooth and warming, it has lots of hops and some mild hints of toffee which coat your mouth. The duration is very long and lasts for a while.

The first sip was a surprise and then realized there is a hint of fruit. This is a very good lager similar to Sam Adams. The flavor is excellent. Buy more than a six pack of this one. Found in Laurel, MD

Strong hop presence in the nose, grains. Beautiful deep copper color with an ivory head. Bitter hop taste with decent malt backbone. finishes the same. Very interesting take on the style.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 The flagship beer of the Brooklyn Brewery, a concern which has reestablished beer brewing in the County of Kings, New York. This is a fine smooth heavy lager, flavorful with hints of sharpness. The color in the glass is burnished gold, with a small-to-medium cream-colored head. Best served very cold. A good beer to drink with lighter meats such as fowl or pork, it can be enjoyed just by itself.

LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 This is American, but rather delicious. Quite exquisite: perfumed, fruity, sweet, bitter. One of my favourite beers, but seems to have disappeared from here. Wretched shame.

This is what I expect from a lager. Nice golden color, thick white head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Medium toasty, hoppy, malty flavor - really nicely balanced. Dry, bitter finish that just makes me want to take another sip. I could drink this beer all day long.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2007
bottle: pours an amber hue with a small white head that disapates fast. aroma is a wonderful nmaltiness with floral touches and some caramel, and grainy. flavour starts a tad bitter and then slides into some toasty malt and caramel malt, some slight fruity floaralness and some earthy hop bitterness is in the finish. very good beer and a style i am really starting to love.

This was a very good beer and I believe my very first Vienna. I definitely would like to try others now.

12 oz. bottle my mother-in-law brought back from NY - Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is light grain and very light herbal hops. Flavor is toasted grain with a nice bit of hop bitterness. Medium body. A smooth, easy drinking Vienna. A nice beer.
