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."

355ml bottle into schooner glass. Caramel malt nose, a little fruit perhaps. Hazy bronze beer with solid white head. Light and lazy carbonation. Crisp and hoppy at first then floral notes take over. Finish is cleansing resin bitterness with distant malt background. Very pleasant beer.

Vienna Lager is very good, this beer reminded me of an Octoberfest brew.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2003 Pours with a bright crisp amber body topped by a medium thick head with good lacing left on the glass. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with caramel notes and hoppy undertones. The flavor is sweet, caramelly, and malty with a hoppy background and a hoppy finish. Smooth and light bodied.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Bottled. Brown coloured lager with a berry fruit aroma. Very full, malty flavour but the aftertaste is a bit too sweet for my liking. Not particularly refreshing but drinkable none the less Score 2.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 3.3 and 3.2. Average becomes 3.2

Blimey, a bit dark for a lager was my first thought until I came to enter the rate and discovered it is classed as a Vienna (my only previous Vienna being the "Mongolian Baadog). Any way, an intriguing ginger/gold colour, with a reddish tints. The aroma has dry bready malt with something a little sharp in the background. Much the same in the mouth, with orangey nuances. Sweet and sour finish. Not bad. Certainly better than your average lager. 355ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk

Aroma is malt and sweetness. Flavor is slight malt forward with a malty finish. Nice light everyday beer.

Lighter amber color, white head. Nice hop prescence, a little bit of bread. Flavor is a little malty, followed by a decent amount of hops. While nice, the hops left an odd astringent taste on my tongue. Medium bodied. Overall a nice beer to be given the dubious task of carrying the ’lager’ title for the brewery.

Draught at Dojo, New York.
A clear dark orange beer with almost no head. Full and sweet malty aroma with toffee tones. Very flavorfull for a lager. Malty and hoppy with notes of Brooklyn yeast and flowers. Nutty finish. A beer I could drink all night long....!

This must be over-rated or maybe this was better in years past. I was impressed by it’s color, it’s flavor was good but not exceptional, not worthy of being in the 70th percentile.
