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."

Teran (278) - 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 (277) - 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

I really enjoyed this beer. Has a great smelling aroma. A real hoppy fruitful flavor that I really enjoyed. I would definitely get it again.

Sudsy white head, a lot of caramel in the flavour. Pretty sweet, but it settled in and by the end of the glass was alright. Faint yeast breadinesss.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2010
Aroma is dough, barnyard, sweet flowers/fruits and some hops. Taste is dough, malts, some caramel malts and finishes off bitter and slightly metallic. Overall a robust, fresh, flowery yet malty lager.

ANZUShophunter (274) - 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.

RyanK (273) - Rhode Island, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pours a gold amber with a white fizzy head that is quick to dissipate, but if you pour to fast it gets foamy. Smells of yeast hops and malted barley with visibly fizz in the glass. Well made lager in that it takes the elements hitting you with hops and then finishes with the light, pale malt. Yeast is prominent and makes it taste not as bland as some others, does have a creamy mouth and serious carbonation. One of the best for it’s style. As compared to say Yuengling, (which I was drinking last night) the focus is much more on the hops and yeast while the pale malt is in the background. The pale malt is much more prominent in most lagers. I thought this was almost like an IPA when i was new to different beers but now I see how it fits in to it’s bland genre. One of the best in a category which doesn’t have much special to offer.

En fantastisk lager med beska i min smak. Härligt guldgul med fast skum. Många smaker i en trevlig kombination. En klar favorit.
