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."

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 Pours an amber-orange colour with a lot of thick, rich head, that lasts and leaves some major lacing on the glass. Aroma is of hops, that’s pretty much it. Taste is immediately hops, at first I was wondering if I’d been tricked into drinking an IPA or APA or a bitter, but then the malts eventually kick in during the finish and after taste to add some balace. Enjoyable, but I wish the malts weren’t so subdued by the hops.

Floral hops and breadlike maltiness dominate the aroma. Appearance is an appealing reddiish brown. Flavor has some sweetness, and a little more hoppiness than I expected. The finish tends to klinger, with some bittering hoppiness. Light to medium mouthfeel. Good beer overall.

radiomgb (2520) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2007
Orange-amber in colour, long lasting off-white coloured head, great lacing. The aroma is hoppy upfront - some citrus, more floral - some bready malts and caramel sweetness. The flavour is very fresh and hoppy, very floral, lots of citrus bite, caramel malts, moderately bitter. Chewy mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, some hop, medium bitterness, dry. This is a hoppy Vienna, I quite like it.

355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario for $12.40 a 6-pack.
Opened on March 1, 2007
Best before December 2007.

Tasty. Pours amber with small white head, strong enticing aromas of malt and fruit. Tangy, malty and fresh tasting, good mouthfeel, hops in finish. Excellent lager!

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Clear, golden, well-carbonated beer with a lovely, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, lightly hoppy, and balanced. Nice, fruity, balanced flavor where some piny notes also find theire way. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and nicely hopped finish. A lovely lager. Wish more brewers could follow this example. (070512)

One good lookin’ beer. Rich, but not too heavy for summer drinking. Little bit of caramel and lots of hops for a vienna.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a large off-white head that lasts leaving great lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light caramel, and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma with a well balanced bitterness. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes crisp and dry. A very flavorfull and refreshing Vienna Lager.
