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."

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2006
This beer pours a sweet reddish amber color, and leaves a thin white head that disappates quickly. The smell is very malty with caramel aspects that give hints of honey and lemon. The taste of this lager is crisp and refreshing the sticky sweet malt weighs on your palate in a good way and there is a lemon wheat flavor on the palate that makes this a balanced refreshing brew to drink all day def session quality.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours a deep gold with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Light and fresh aromas of: caramel, grass, dough, cooked vegetables, and vanilla. Perfectly balanced flavor with a finish that nods to bitter. An excellent lager.

Teran (290) - 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.

Amber pour, big head and lace. Bold and hoppy for a lager, with good carb and a sweetness pervading. Fair.

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.

ANZUShophunter (283) - 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.
