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."

Bottle from The Ducie, Manchester. Reddish-brown in colour with slightly off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with biscuit malts. Very floral taste with spicy characteristics and a bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too lively carbonation. In looks and character this is a close cousin to a flavoursome English bitter. Reading other reviews it would seem this is a different colour the world over. Odd, eh?

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Hopper than expected - grapefruit citrus, some lemon, beady, and great lager character. Really nice

Teran (314) - 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.

Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is honey with a bit of hops. The flavor is malty with a nice little hop kick to it. Somewhat grassy on the finish. Pretty decent lager.

This is a very drinkable and good tasting beer. I had this on tap at a local restaurant. It had a touch of caramel and bread taste. IT was suttle and good.

pours brilliant copper color with medium white head. aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy, especially for style. very nice floral hop flavor with a farily complex malt backbone. drinks almost more like a light ipa than a lager....really yummy beer.

pours amber golden-brown with a fluffy off-white head. nose of bread, floral hops, caramel, toast. flavor is bready, toasty, and a little bitter. floral. malty and well-balanced. finish is a little dry, nutty flavor comes through.

Big on the malt (as advertised) which had me pleased, it was also nice to see the respectable hop profile presented here. Strong floral hops help balance a semi-sweet, doughy malty flavor. This beer will not blow your mind, but it is a highly enjoyable lager, and reasonably priced and widely available to boot.
