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."

I struggle to call this a lager, so if I had a vote on style it would’ve been low. If you ignore the fact they call this a lager what do you have? An excellent well balanced session beer

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 This lager is absolutely gorgeous to behold with its amber shade and soapy, pure head. It’s also loaded with flavor, thanks to a bold burst of crisp hops. Sweet maltiness tempered by a fresh hoppiness. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this beer.

Rich, malty American lager - thicker and fuller tasting than most lagers. Perfect beer for an autumn day 28/01/14

Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a fast white head, small bubbles. Light aromas of hop and honey, strong aromas of malt and earth. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness, followed by a perfect dry finish. Wonderful beer.

Kolor zloty. Piana gesta. Nasycenie srednie, tj. takie jak ma byc. W zapachu slod i owoce, w smaku zas duzo chmielu.

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.

Every medium except for from a can somehow. This is my favorite beer though, my go to, probably my most consumed and purchased over the time I’ve been drinking beer so far. Very attractive amber/dark gold body, creamy head, crisp and clean taste, good balance of caramel, roastiness, and floral hops. Much more colorful and flavorful and just all around way better tasting than most American lagers, especially the macros and standards. Fantastic.

Brooklyn was one of the first "craft beers" i tried. Dark with abit of a kick to it but very enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 En riktigt god lager! Snygg gyllenmörk färg. Lagom beska men god "clean" smak ändå med humle i förgrunden.

A really easy beer to drink. Poured from the keg here in Australia comes out fresh and refreshing.
