Commercial Description

Our flagship beer, the award-winning Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a fine bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts slow in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by "dry-hopping," the centuries old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderful flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing, and very versatile with food.

    12 oz. bottle from pretty fresh mix 12 pack. Into a chalice.
    A: Average pour shows truly amber color with great clarity, tight knit head, decent retention and nice lacing. Looks more like a lighter IPA than a Vienna..
    S: Light malty smell of medium dark bread and slight floral hop scent. Very light aroma overall. Gets slightly fruity after warming for a bit.
    T: Wheat bread maltiness and the English hop flavor combine almost immediately for a nicely balanced taste. Classic Vienna style lager IMO. Very drinkable.
    M: Medium light body with a nice amount of carbonation and dry but slightly sticky finish.
    O: Can’t go wrong with this amber lager. Nothing special but beats a XX. Worth buying and easily found in my area. A fine lager brew.

    One of the few traditional "mass produced" lager beers that capture something that the MEGA lagers lack... flavor. Refreshing beer that sets standards for quality and taste in a U.S. based craft lager.

    The recipe predates Garrett Oliver, though he has probably tweaked it. It has been made, from the start, in Utica, New York. Here's a little more: bit.ly/z1VAJI

    A classic, medium-bodied lager. A little hearty, the kind of beer you can really appreciate the flavor of; but also put away a few if you're in the mood. Very well rounded. Not quite a favorite, but always a good standby.

    I think that this has become my go to beer on nights that im at the store and cant find anything but budweiser or bud light. Its a great beer, not overly carbinated. Most definately goes great with a burger
