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.

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.

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.

$8.69 for a six pack at Winn Dixie. Its out of character for me to be buying six packs of a lager, but this and the brown ale were the first Brooklyn brews I have seen in North Florida. This is not your typical swill lager. Very hoppy, with a round, smooth malt base that holds everything together. Dry and nicely bitter on the finish. No faults, and excellent. One of the few lagers I actually enjoyed drinking. Amazing to find it at Winn Dixie.

Bottle. Some floral hop aroma and lightly smoked malt. The flavor is similar and decent for the style. Dry-finish with some lingering hops.
