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

Arrrghhh! hoppy, heavy and more bitter than your mother in law. Call me uncultured, but i didn’t like this beer at all.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark amber appearance is remarkably dark for a lager. Generous floral/hop aroma with a gooey drop of golden syrup. Good hop bitterness clings throughout the flavour cycle, generating excellent length. Rich palate. Further sips reveal wood and floral characteristics. A full-flavoured lager that deserves the pedestal it sits on.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Ive had a love hate realationship with Brooklyn lager. At first I really disliked this beer, too heavy and always just sits in my stomach. Now I’ve arrived at a detente, it’s ok, will drink if necessary.

Draft...amber in color, strong hop taste, white head, this is one of Brooklyn’s best in my opinion. And a lager, no less.

Maybe not the best from Brooklyn, but I could give it another chance. Boring and unbalanced. Watery!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear orangey/copper with a small white frothy head and some nice visible carbonation. Aroma was malt dominant and slightly sweet with some earth notes of grass and dirt. Flavor was refreshing and smooth with some floral hops notes, a little sweetness and a malty aftertaste that lingered nicely. As far as lagers go this is one pretty darn good beer.
