COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Pilsner is a refreshing golden lager beer, brewed in the style favored by New York’s pre-Prohibition brewers. In the 1840’s, the pilsner style emerged from central Europe to become the world’s most popular style of beer. Like its ancesters, Brooklyn Pilsner is traditionally brewed from the finest European two-row barley malts. German-grown Perle and Hallertauer hops provide a crisp, snappy bitterness and fresh, floral aroma. We ferment Brooklyn Pilsner at cool temperatures and then give it a long, gentle maturation (lagering), which results in a beer of superior complexity and smoothness.

malvrich (35) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2015
A: Haystraw yellow with perhaps a bit of chill haze. Nice two finger rocky head with very good retention. Average to low carbonation swirling up. Good amount of lace left behind. S: Cracker malt and little else. T: A biting dryness up front. Crisp crackers again which I like. Earthy hop flavor on the finish. Good balance and overall a fairly distinctive flavor. Very good. M: Light to medium mouthfeel with a nice tingle from fine textured carbonation. O: Another nice pilsner to add to my stable of favorites. Maybe not in my top 3 of the style but one I will surely always go back to.

phudz7o (1) - - JAN 6, 2015 does not count
A nice clear, no haze, straw color. Clean crisp taste with hints of sweetness. Good dry finish that rolls off the palate. Head is a bright white and the aroma has notes of noble hops like a good pilsener should. Fantastic carbonation.

Brewfoolery (27) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Appearance poured from bottle is golden yellow. Head is firm and white with persistence and lacing. Initial aroma brings noble hops with spicy vegetal nose that opens to Pils sweetness with temperature rise. Light carbonated mouthfeel that has Pils sweetness balanced by lingering hop bitterness. After taste is clean and all bitter, not sweet.

tricyclist (924) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Really a pleasant pilsner. Bright pour with a nice full proper head. Nose is mild hop, citrus and grass, with a clean malt. Flavor is clean bright citrus and not too bitter hops paired with moderate malt... Clean, crisp, and enjoyable.

EithCubes (5104) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle BB OCT 2014. Nose is caramel, lightly spicy with earth and toffee, little bit of must/body odor. Pale yellow with what looks like a little chill haze, a soapy bright white head, and an overabundance of fast carbonation. Watery light body with dry, papery bitterness, dry on the whole except for light juicy sweetness from the hops. Tons of lemony citrus, good and authentic noble hop extraction, very faint spice with cleansing properties on the side. Fresh and relatively clean, but not crisp despite the carbonation, and the metallic/chalky undertones in the far bg start to wear. A good one for volume drinking in the summer, as the pleasant bitterness doesn’t add up too quickly and there’s really no sign of alcohol.
