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."

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 Bottle. Pours a amber gold body with a thin top. Aroma is pale malt, subtle fruits, and a moderate hop bittering aspect. Drinks pretty easy, with a strong hop kick to finish this one.

NDbeerdrinker (167) - West Islip, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with thin head. Aroma is not very strong, but is pleasant with slight citrus aroma. Equally malty and hoppy and easy to drink with a slight toastiness. Very good beer and something that I could drink everyday.

Stine (1775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Tap at Rustico. Clear, dull orange; thin rimmed white foam. Sweet, herbal aroma; floral honey, grass and leaves, orange, cinnamon; even keeled malt and hop presence, refreshing and sweet. Fairly basic crisp malt flavor; light iced tea, biscuit, cinnamon, honey; crisp cereals and earthy noble earthiness. Bitterness is citrusy; malt bill full and rich. Medium palate; moderately carbonated, fresh and forward. Satiating and charming, warm, refreshing example; spot on.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft @ Rustico. Pours a clear, deep golden-amber color; very light tan head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing, coating the glass; a gorgeous pour. Solid amounts of tea, toasted malts, and earthiness / red fruits in the aroma; crisp, toasty, tasty nose. Medium mouthfeel: toasty malts, red fruits, and some soft brown sugar upfront; solid levels of carbonation; chewy, toasted malts and crackers and earthy hop bitterness; very drinkable. Medium finish: bread, earthy bitterness, and crisp crackers; some slight fruit.

nearbeer (5292) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2008
12 oz. New penny-colored and clear with a large lasting meringue of head. Earthy spiced caramel, crisp apple, slight molasses, grain, and a squeeze of lemon in the aroma. Flavors are the same and damn good; tastes more like a good ESB than a lager. Light-medium body is mostly smooth and dry on the finish.

Wow. Every so often the brewers self description is surprisingly off. This is a lager, true, but its amber color and malty character distinguish it as a Vienna and an excellent example at that! Very tasty beer.

Bottle BB feb 09. Big carbonation, almost gushing, Fresh citrus reminding of egg whites, sugar and lemon.. Pineapple, vanilla, apricots, papaya, mango and spicy hops. Medium body, grapy but soft. Clean and creamy. Some roasted malts. Dissapointingly short aftertaste.
