Can’t believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance has a nice bronzed amber color with a light transparency about it to have some light carbonation to be seen rising. There is a two finger white foamy head that mushroom caps and dissipates at a nice pace leaving a messy sort of thick lacing all around the glass. The smell had some dried sweet caramel malts with a rich sort of nuttiness running underneath to amplify a wonderful aroma. The taste was extremely nice through the rich caramel malts and a delicate nutty flavoring. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation ends up being somewhat smooth and creamy but still lets in enough harshness. Overall, whoah, where did this come from Schmaltz? Good job with making a very good Vienna Lager.

Hidden_Pooch (286) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Probably the first good lager I ever had. With actual taste, it left me quite surprised. With hints of caramel and bitterness, but all at a subdued lager level. I found it to be very spicy and herby as well, but all within a comfortable range. I rated it so high, because this is what lagers have the potential to be, instead of light piss water.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. This lager poured a great amber cloudy color with a frothy head. What a great flavor! This is a bold lager, lager being the foundation. On top of that just enough malt and a good heap of hops. Big round mouthy flavor. Cheers!

Kita (1028) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 22, 2013
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear amber color with thin creamy off-white head, excellent lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of toasted, caramel and biscuit malt, herbal and mild floral hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel malt, following is refreshing fruity and grainy sour, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Surprisingly good for bottom fermentation brew, but that’s American quality...

Tasty lager here. Bubbly and with caramel notes. Ambet looking, light bodied. Short, weak palate, and thats why is just a good try but nothing compare to the Brooklyn Lager.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of grain with touches molasses and caramel. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of caramel and citrus. Not bad, but more reminiscent of an APA than an Aber Lager.

ansermadide (1518) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bold, orange-amber in color with a full, off-white colored head, this beer is clean with moderate carbonation. The aroma is simply of an amber lager, with light caramel easily dominating the nose. A grainy character is also present, coupling with a dusty antique smell. The flavor is as expected, but very close in redness to that of an amber ale. Caramel malts prevail slightly over the inherent overall lager character. Something earthy remains at its core, though, and shines in the finish. It’s likely pilsener malts and perhaps the character of its hops, but it simply tastes like the caramel simply, and finally, takes the back seat. Overall, not that I pleasant, but still much better than most amber lagers.

Draught@Brooklyn. Copper color, off-white head. Smooth flavor, good balance. Malty with a hint of nuttiness and a hoppy finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice!
