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."

Smells strongly of pleasant citrus hops. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Taste is refreshingly citrusy with a nice light feel to it. Tastes like a lagered pale ale. Fantastic.

Smells a great mix of fresh cascade (?) hops, bittering hops and caramel malt. An amber, almost orange brew with a very small head. Nicely sweet, well balanced, slightly creamy with a great fresh hop flavor. Finishes slightly bitter. Could drink these all day - i really like this beer.

This is a very good Vienna. Aroma was caramel with some hops in there as well. Pour was a nice dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was classic Vienna. Caramel and malt mostly and the hops round out the beer in the end. Sticky and wet mouth feel. Nice.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Crystal clear medium amber body with lively carbonation. Large, spongy, off-white head that settles to a 1mm blanket of foam. Nice thick ribbons of lacing circle the glass. The aroma is subtle but well constructed. Toasty bread notes and surprisingly lively herbal hops play well over a caramel malt base. Floral scents make their way into the mix, adding subtle complexity. The flavor is very similar, with toasty grains, caramel malts, floral and herbal hops blending well in a very fresh tasting, refreshing rendition of the style. There’s a bit of cream mixed in as well, adding smoothness. Medium bodied, with a lively mouthfeel. The finish is mildly spicy. Not a knock your socks off style, but this is well crafted.
