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."

A bit shy aroma. Great balance between hops and caramel in flavor. Smooth and tasy. Yummy. But is a Vienna?

Sweet fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. Very bitter taste. Lingering taste. Very smooth going down, enjoyable. Mildly acrid aftertaste.

Tap, at LGA’s NYSB. Pour is golden, though a deep golden. Aroma is citrus and a bit of hop. Taste is a fairly normal lager taste, nothing too special - though a bit more fruit - citrus than expected. Refreshing.

out of a can! Huge off-white head and a clear copper body. Pretty big saaz hop in the nose and flavor. noticeably malty, more than a pilsner but not as rich and sweet as the only other vienna i can think of, GL eliot ness. A really good beer and cheap too. good sessioning. you can’t beat a craft beer in a can, but i think i might like Pikeland pils a little more than this.

My team lost by 33 pts ... ouch. Ah, well at least there’s still beer in the fridge. This poured with a deeper color than I’d expected (because I didn’t read the label), pretty much an amber-golden beer. The whipped-up head sticks to the top of your lip on the first swallow. Wow, there’s a lot of apple in this one, tart light caramel, too. Pretty rich, yet disarmingly drinkable. Well done. (#2750, 3/15/2007)

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Softly sweet, your nose will be begging for more. Unfortunately, once you let it onto your tongue your mouth will be begging for more too! Very american, with a spicy sweet fruitiness. A pure clean taste - you know it’s good for you!

Amber in color, with a nice citrusy and slight sweet honey taste. The afertaste is slightly bitter, just right. The head was white and short lasting. Very little lacing. I enjoyed this beer a lot. Can’t wait to taste their other brews.

Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber-orange with an average size lasting white head -- now that’s a good looking Lager. Nice aroma of fresh floral hops along with some grain and caramel malt -- very nice! Flavour has a nice balance of floral hops and caramel malt along with some fruit and grain and a light bitter finish. It’s hoppier then your average Lager and that’s a good thing. Medium bodied. Wow, this is a fantastic Lager, I’m shocked how much I like it!

Amber with a white short lasting head. Fresh flowery hobby aroma, sweet malty medium body with a descrete hobby bitterness in the flavor. Very good for a lager!

3.5
TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2007
An above average lager. Nice copper brown, firm white head. Flavourful, with mild fruity undertones, satisfying hop presence.
