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."

Lele (222) - Padova, ITALY - APR 1, 2015
ASPETTO: ambrato limpido, poca schiuma. AROMA: smaltato, floreale, succo d’uva ed erbaceo. GUSTO: all’abbocco è smaltato, abbastanza dolce. I sentori erbacei emergono soprattutto verso la parte finale del sorso (anche se è comunque sempre presente). Finale abbastanza secco (ma neanche tanto) che ripulisce comunqie la bocca. Carbonizzazione media, corpo tra medio e leggero CONCLUSIONE: birra pienamente soddisfacente, baverina, dissetante e gustosa. Ne avrei bevuta molto di più.

ILduce (219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2008
On tap in namesake @ the Bier Markt: Amber-orange with medium head and healthy lacing...good looks. Aromas are strong with sweet malt, fruit and floral hops. Tastes hoppy with undertones of citrus and butterscotch. Bitter finish. Very impressive.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Ambrée orangée, relativement limpide. Mousse peu persistante, par se dépose bien. Aromatique houblonnée sur le fruit, un côté caramel avec aussi une pointe céréalée au niveau du maltage. Levures. En bouche d’entrée sucrée-caramel avec une petite amertume bien balancée. Fruitée, agrumes avec une pointe d’acidité. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée et levures. Carbonatation moyenne. Vraiment très bonne Lager.

Shakesbeere (217) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2009
On tap in Brooklyn. Reddish-brown pour; medium body. Aroma was very hoppy. Flavor was initially very bitter with some malt; later transitioned into a distinct citrus finish. It was all right, but seemed heavy on the hops for a Vienna lager -- a little too much to be considered clean and crisp. Citrus fruit finish was unexpected.

yumyum (216) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 pours almost a coppery colour with white head. goes down nice. a solid hoppiness Has a nice (albeit short)finish which makes it very drinkable. Good flavour. not overly bitter and not too sweet. a solid brew

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Off-white head is medium and bit heterogenous, leaves small lacing. Color is faintly hazy, yellowish copper. Aroma is very nicely bloomy hoppy, toffy and a bit berried. A bit berried flavor is sweety malty and very much flowery hoppy for a lager. Nicely bitter. Quite light-bodied and tingly carbonated palate.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Appealing amber body color with small head. Roasted caramel malt with bitter herbal pine hops. Strong fruity aroma. Biscuit & wood notes. Medium-high carbonated. Bitter-herbal aftertaste. Very enjoyable refreshing beer.

This was a very good beer and I believe my very first Vienna. I definitely would like to try others now.
