Vienna Lager

Brooklyn Brewery – Brooklyn Lager

Date: Monday, January 2, 2011
Brewery: Brooklyn
Beer: Brooklyn Lager
Category: Vienna Lager
ABV: 5.10%
Brewed in: USA

Appearance is pale brown with great clarity. Little carbonation visible. A thick 1 inch head developed with minor lacing. Head retention is good.

The aroma is of pungent American hops that are slightly toasted and nutty.

The taste is crisp and clean with a good mouthfeel. Quite carbonated in the mouth.

Initial flavors are of mild malt that give way to dominating bold hops. Bitterness is lingering and satisfying.

Excellent beer and strongly recommended.
