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."

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 8, 2005
Golden with an average white head. Aroma is filled with flowery, citrusy hops, with a bit of cookie sweetness. Flavor is piney and a bit malty, and the finish is dry and a bit astringent.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Citrussy and hoppy, this is a very refreshing and pleasant beer. Pours a dark amber with small head. Sweet aroma, fresh flavour and good mouthfeel. The first vienna Iíve liked :)

TBone (13700) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
Bottled
Golden color, small but steady white head. Flowery, fruity nose. Extremely well-balanced malt and hop character. Feels more like pils than lager (what this Vienna means here?). Flowery, hoppy, world class brew.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 (Bottled, 5.2% ABV) Deep golden-copper color with a medium, firm and lacy head. Toffeeish, nutty-hoppy aroma with some floweriness, berries and butter. Quite strongly bitter, slightly roasted-malty and woody-nutty-hoppy flavor with a salty and mildly acidic finish. Sticky, bitter-woody aftertaste. Medium-bodied, slightly harshly bitter, mildly acidic palate with a bit fizzy carbonation. A slightly harsh and watery, but overall quite balanced and tasty brew with nicely aromatic hopping. Certainly one of the best Viennas out there.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2005
Bottle. Amber with white head dragging Belgian lace at is collapses. Aroma is citrussy, which is repeated on the palate complemented by some light spiciness. Finishes with some bitterness. Thin mouth ffel with lively carbonation. An OK beer, but too dominated by the hops.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2005
This is Brooklynís flagship beer. Itís a golden copper that offers a sweet caramel aroma. It manages a nice malty taste. The aroma for this is much more appealing that the actual taste.

Is this a lager? Iím impressed! This is by far the best lager Iíve ever tasted. Itís full of flavour, aroma and fruity like a good ale.
