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."

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2013
355ml bottle shared with friends. Pours amber with a thin white head. Lovely nose of citrus, roast malt, caramel with spicy hints of chili. Tastes nice and bitter, a little sourness. Nice bit of citrus and malt. Medium and dry palate with a nice lingering bitterness. Overall, very tasty and complex for a lager.

I bought this beer because I never had it before. I’ll buy it again, because it impressed me so much. For a lightish lager, you can’t go wrong with this.

Teran (286) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 Best commercial lager in the world. Lager is probably the worst type of beer, but this one is more like IPA ora APA. Darker colour than any other lager in the world, red dark orange gold. Small light beige top. Nice taste, bitter finish. Also nicely carbonate. I do not know why it is called Vienna lager, because it is really good American type of beer. Sometimes Americans think that Eu name is something more precious.

Padchenko (281) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 18, 2015
Fruity hoppy amber lager with a small disappearing head. Good carbonation. Makes for a tasty and easy-drinkable lager that is easy on the palate. Nice

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Poured from my home tap, the appearance is a deep yellow-amber color and a thick, creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor are hop-forward, with prominent notes of grapefruit and grass, but there is also a substantial caramel malt backbone. The mouthfeel also seemed off-style, with a much more resinous texture and little of the crispness I expected (and desired) from a lager. Overall, it was different, interesting, and quite unexpected, but it was just too far from what I was looking for in a good lager.

Lots of roasted malts and citrus hops on the aroma. Mostly malt carbonation. Lots of body. Excellent beer.

Xavalias (280) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle from Føtex, Denmark. Pours golden amber with a foamy medium and off-white head. Fresh dry bitterness, light bodied, easy to drink.

ANZUShophunter (280) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Bar, Brisbane. Beautifully rich amber colour with persistent head. Modest aroma with sharp flavour. However, this beer is a long way from home and my experience with vienna lagers is that they do not travel well. Hope to try in NYC some day to compare.

Definently one of the better lagers out there. Nice aroma. Not as lagery as one might expect. Well worth a try.
