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."

i was hoping not to be disappointed with this beer but I was. Very nice color but that is as far as it goes. Very light bodied, no aroma, no head and a bad aftertaste.

This is a pretty tasty vienna lager - light copper - small head but good lacing - aroma is sweet and slightly flowery - pretty heavy and malty for a lager - with a decent amount of hopping as well, rounding out this unusually creamy vienna - slightly buttery as well - one of my new favorite lagers.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Clear amber brew with a small, creamy white head. Good lacework. The aroma is floral and malty with a hint of cocoa. This lager tastes hearty, malty and well-hopped. Acetic, not bitter, hops seem to have been used. Excellent balance. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fairly lively carbonation. Short, crisp finish. Like all other viennas that I've tasted, this beer would probably go very well with a meal.

First tried on tap at a social function. Nice beer. It has a thick, rich flavor. Substantial is a good word. A great everyday drinker.

Flavours run deep and are complex.Nice appearance but I couldn't get away from a slightly 'tinny' feel and an aftertaste that whilst not unpleasant certainly wasn't the most friendly I have come across, Having read reviews raving about this one I have got to say that I feel a bit dissapointed.Its all a matter of taste butI cant help feel that this is an overrated beer-boring and old fashioned label as well.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2003
A great Vienna - not quite as crisp as Elliot Ness or, especially, Riverwest Stein, but completely traditional and lovely - all butter and caramel here, but crisp nonetheless, only a tad flowery, tight hallertau ending. Yum.

THIS was actually my farewell beer as my I bought at departure at airport. Liked it better in a large glass than the sips from friends plastic cup at brewery (not fair asssessment). Much better than I had thought, though not particularly special. Round mouth feel and good balance for what is essentially an easy drinker. An all night session perhaps, though I would perhaps head for "higher ground" by personal choice.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Hoppy, definitely; somewhat fruity (grapefruit comes mostly to mind, but it is mild). An interesting variation on the style, and a welcome relief, even if I'm not ultimately a fan. (on tap, Brooklyn Brewery)

Medium golden peach color with substantial white head. Mild aroma of floral hops and some malt. Well balanced crisp flavor with a medium body. Flavor has mild malt beginning leading to a clean hop middle. Finish is simlarly balanced, slightly hoppy, full, and somewhat dry. Lingering pleasant aftertaste.
